The San Diego Italian Film Festival Announces 5th Annual SDIFF Ristretto Awards - Submissions Now Open!
The San Diego Italian Film Festival (SDIFF) announces the fifth annual SDIFF Ristretto Awards, dedicated to short narratives either by Italians or about Italian culture, Italian-American identity, or more broadly for the Italian community.
For its 17th annual feStivale in October 2023, SDIFF is seeking innovative, original, and thought-provoking works that have been completed not before 2021.
Works may focus on Italian culture, either as fiction, documentary or experimental movie, up to 30 minutes in length, and with English subtitles if not in the English language.
We welcome stories told through new perspectives, that appeal to all audiences, and inspire creativity and discussion. Particular interest will be dedicated to social justice themes, such as migration, women's rights, education, environmental and eco struggles, and so on.
A special focus, section, and award will be dedicated to movies submitted by high school and college students.
