Pardi di domani

A platform for new talent, the Pardi di domani section screens short and medium-length films from around the world (not more than 59 minutes in length) by independent filmmakers or film school students who have not previously directed feature films.

For many filmmakers short films are a stepping stone on the way to features, for some they continue to represent a conscious preference in terms of language and expression. Either way, the Pardi di domani section provides the selected directors with a platform to gain credibility on the international scene and lay the foundations for their future projects.
