Skepto International Film Festival has a competitive nature and it is open to short films with no limits as to their subject, style or production budget. It is open to short films of all kinds, including documentaries, musical videoclips, videoart, experimental short films, spots, fake trailers, new media format, mobile videos, etc.

The festival will take place in Cagliari in April 2018, with collateral screenings in the same dates or during the following months (before the end of 2018 – we plan to organise at least two events in other Sardinian locations and two in other Italian or international cities). The exact dates will be published on the official site of the Festival www.skepto.net

The Best Short Award will be awarded to the best narrative short film.

The Alberto Signetto Special Award will be awarded to the best documentary short.

The Environmental Sustainability Special Award will be awarded to the best short film
dealing with the stimulating challenge that we have to face in these years: the development of a new cultural, economic and social model, responsible and respectful to our planet..

The Skeptyricon Special Award will be awarded to the best satirical/grotesque/splatter short film.

Additional awards or special mentions can be granted for short movies with peculiar features (for example animated films, videoclips, works about particular topics such as environmental sustainability) at the jury’s full discretion.

- Maximum length: 20 minutes including credits.

- Production date: after January 1st 2015.

The author warrants the submission of his/her original work and there are no disputes regarding the ownership of his/her submission. He/she warrants the submitted material does not defame or invade the rights of any person living or dead and he fully indemnify Skepto International Film Festival against any claim made for such violations of law.

Submission and acceptance of these rules imply the agreement to the screening of the submitted films during the Skepto International Film Festival, that will take place in Cagliari in April 2018, and - if not explicitly denied – during the collateral screenings in the same dates or in the following months (before the end of 2018 – we plan to organise at least two events in other Sardinian locations and two in other Italian or international cities). If you don't want to give your agreement to these collateral screenings, please send us an e-mail at info@skepto.net. The missing adhesion to the parallel screenings will not affect in any way the judgement of the movies in the pre-selection phase neither the decisions of the official jury.

Signing the entry form means a complete acceptance of all the rules. Festival management will make the final decision about anything not already included in these rules.

The Festival jury's decision about the selection of the movies for the screening and the awarding is final.

If the number of the works in one or more sections of the festival is deemed insufficient, the Festival is entitled to cancel the section. Authors will be informed on time and fees will be given back.

The Festival has the right to use, freely and only for promotional purposes, 45 seconds excerpts of of each selected movie, the stills and all the additional material.
