Fabriano Film Fest is an international short film festival.
Its 2020 edition was met with a vast critical and public acclaim, but above all had the merit of creating a warm, friendly, but also highly professional environment: both the selected short films, and the jury that took on the hard-going task of judging them, were of exceptional quality.
This year we'll be together again for our sixth edition, most certainly, the "short film language" will still be the festival's highlight, with screenings of the films admitted to the competition taking place on Friday and Saturday night. We'll have seminars, castings and aperitivos, too! Sunday will be dedicated to the winning shorts and their authors, and of course to the awards ceremony.

Documentary Film Festival Globale Berlin

Deadline: 05 Apr 2020

Call for entries!

International Festival

Short film festival

Feature film festival


Globale Berlin: the film festival critical of globalization is a space that offers a platform for emancipatory content and solidarity with various resistance struggles.

The selected films make visible a multitude of different struggles that radically oppose a globally dominant system in which capitalist exploitation, patriarchal violence, racism and discrimination threaten life and its future.

In the mainly documentary formats, we learn from inspiring forms of resistance worldwide that defend and build a world in which a dignified and self-determined life for all humans and animals in harmony with nature is possible. The resistance cannot be deterred by new manifestations of capitalism and colonialism, which are trying in a crisis to sell old structures in a new guise as an alternative. The idea of the festival is also to make visible real alternatives that are practiced and growing every day, to learn from them and let them flourish.

In the selection of film projects, the focus is not only on the end product film, but often on its way of origin and the connection between content and how, why and for whom it was produced. Above all, Globale supports perpetual and collective solidarity networks. Current films (from the last two years) are preferred or those whose content is important for topicality.

During the festival there will be an exhibition as well as food on a donation basis for concrete projects.

On the history of the festival:
Globale was born in Berlin in 2003 and later spread to other cities and countries. The anti-globalization protests that were growing stronger at that time were decisive for the worldwide replication of the festival. Today the Globale takes place in Leipzig, Bremen, Marburg, Salzburg, Rio de Janeiro, Montevideo and Bogota. It has the same approach everywhere, but is made up of different Orga teams, most of which work independently of each other.

About the Festivalteam:
We are people with a critical political position on the contents of the festival. Our group is an open, non-hierarchical group in which members participate according to capacity and initiative. We work all year round on the selection of films and preparations and regularly organise individual film screenings outside the festival with activists* who are currently in town. None of us are paid to organise the festival.

Feelmotion ESNE International Short Film Festival is organized by ESNE University in Madrid.

Originally conceived as a film festival for designers and university students, the festival celebrates its first edition in 2012, born from the initiative of the students and Raúl San Julián, director of the festival and professor at ESNE. Since then the festival has celebrated a total of eight editions, with more than 1000 participating short films from over 50 universities in 30 countries around the world and a total of more than 5000 university students who have participated or collaborated with the festival.

Thanks to the support of our partners, our finalists have been able to use Feelmotion to give themselves momentum and reach such important festivals as the San Sebastian International Film Festival, the New York International Independent Film & Video Fest or the 3D Wire.
Among the outstanding participants are our alumni Diego Porral, nominated for the Goya Award for Best Animated Short Film 2018 for "Un día en el parque" which was selected as Best Feelmotion Short Film 2017 and currently has more than 40 awards and 200 nominations; and José Herrera, winner of the Goya Award for Best Animated Short Film 2019 for "Cazatalentos".

In each of its editions, Feelmotion has relied on a large team of professionals and volunteers from the student body to organize both the contest and its corresponding awards gala and the numerous thematic events of each edition. In total, more than 200 students from different ESNE grades have collaborated with their efforts to make Feelmotion happen.

Feelmotion has also counted on great professionals from the film industry to be part of the juries that each year choose the winners. Professionals such as directors and screenwriters Borja Cobeaga, Paco Martínez Velasco, Hector Hercé, María Pérez Sanz or Alex Rodrigo; producers and academics Marichu Corugedo, Txepe Lara, José Nolla and Antonio R. Cabal; actors Tristan Ulloa, Natalie Poza, Olivia Molina, Ana Arias or Jon Viar among others; and a long list of journalists, technicians, academics, etc.

In the last edition, Feelmotion had the participation of 204 short films, with 120 from outside ESNE of which half came from outside Spain. Every year Feelmotion takes another step to become a reference festival for new directors and university students.
