Orvieto Cinema Fest came to light with its first edition in October 2018, from an idea of Sara Carpinelli and Stefania Fausto, who are passionate about cinema and have long been active in the city.

The festival is organised by the voluntary organisation of the same name, Orvieto Cinema Fest ODV.
The association, led by four young women, is made up of young people from Orvieto and elsewhere who have made their skills and professionalism available to the project, embracing the mission that inspires our activities.

The association also organises other projects with the aim of promoting film culture and, in particular, short films, throughout the year, in collaboration with organisations other than our own.
The Festival takes place in the last week of September at the Teatro Mancinelli, a splendid setting in the historic town of Orvieto.

Why shorts?

The Festival is dedicated to short films in order to boost and spread awareness of this type of filmmaking, which deserves greater prominence and recognition equal to that which is already widespread abroad.
There are three categories in competition: Best International, Best National, Best Animation.
