Amarcort Film Festival 2021 edition’s intense activities have entered in the selection phase: on July 30th the deadline to submit short films to the international competition has expired. The festival has now reached its fourteenth year of activity.

The festival staff communicates with pleasure, at the close of applications, that the number of proposed films has surpassed by 200 the preliminary estimates, with a participation from more than 70 countries. Those numbers are a pleasant surprise for sure, in view of the uncertainty caused by the post-quarantine situation.

Amarcort 21 will be happening in Rimini, Italy, from November 23rd to 28th. The selection committee will now be engaged in viewing all the works and determine the shortlist of the finalists from the different categories. New to this 14th edition, the Calzinazz Category for documentaries and the MOViE for short films that use dance and body movements to shape the narrative.
