Sardinia Queer Short Film Festival 2018
Submit your short films addressed to LGBTQ themed works.
All Ages

Due September 10th, 2018 - Sardinia Queer Short Film Festival 2018 is a short movies contest addressed to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer themed works, both released and unreleased ones. Contents can be artistically performed in all its possible meanings, interpretations and realities.

USNFestival is a film competition sponsored by ARC, a cultural association from Cagliari, by ARCinema, a member of the Italian Federation of Cinema Societies, and by the students’ association universitARC.

USNFestival is part of a wider project of activities related to Uno Sguardo Normale Expo, a queer culture festival, organized by ARC, the LGBTQ association of Cagliari, ARCinema and unviersitARC. These associations aim, once again this year, to raise awareness towards society, thanks to the universal language of art, on natural forms of sexual orientation, gender identity and equality in terms of civil rights. In addition, through the Festival the associations aims are: to enhance and promote young and independent movie productions, especially the small ones, that are connected to queer culture; to foster dialogue and cultural exchange among productions of different countries; to offer to the city of Cagliari the opportunity to learn more about this still unknown movie niche.

Any genre of works will be accepted (documentary, fiction, classic and/or digital animation, video clips, video art) as long as they have been released after January 2016. Application is open to all works without any constraint concerning genre, format and technique. Both distributed (in Italy or abroad) and undistributed films will be accepted too.

Entries must be no longer than 25 minutes in length (opening and closing credits included).
