Italy: Homemade film festival from Oberon
April 27, 2020
By Chris Forrester
Giuliano Berretta, former president of Eutelsat, is helping create an Italian short-film festival which is being organised by Rome-based TV production house Oberon Media where he is CEO.
Berretta described the concept, saying: “We’ve created a festival to make room for homemade short films. Our ultimate goal is to entertain and push entrants to express their own artistic streak, in what is such a hard time for everyone. We are forced to stay at home, but our creativity can still come out.”
Deadline for ‘A Casa con Oberon Media’ submissions is April 28th. The films can be up to 6 minutes in length. Entries, if accompanied by dialogue, must be in Italian. There is a €1000 jury-awarded prize plus other runner up trophies. May 5th will see the Top 5 finalists announced. The winning films will be shown on Oberon’s social media pages, and the prize-giving screened in a special ceremony.
Entrants can upload their submissions via Filmfreeway.
