Category Rules

Awards are given to PEOPLE. It means to the Human Being responsible for the area (Directing, Editing, ecc.) with a Nomination criteria, NOT to a Film title.

Only Best Film Category (Top Audience Award among the WINNER FILMMAKER'S FILM SCREENED at the festival) wins as a title (to the producer) so you might want to send in also a simple bio/contacts of all the filmmakers such as Editor, Production Designer, and any other included in our Nomination-category's list.

The Nominee filmmakers' films are shown only to LDV Film Society members (for voting) who serves as an Institutional Jury, therefore able to keep the premiere status if needed.

Italian premiere is not required if the film has been produced and ready by January 1st of the previous year of the current festival edition. If the film is an ABSOLUTE ITALIAN PREMIERE, (never been screened on Italian territory at any festival or event), any older productions then above are accepted.

OPPORTUNITY (FOR FEATURE FILMS CATEGORY NON-ITALIAN LANGUAGE ONLY): if the film will be provided with Italian subtitles - and both English for non-English films - the fee will be waived, and returned. Please contact programmer@miff.it to know how.
