The Azimut Theatrical Festival is organised by Azimut Distribution, an Italian distributor that is bringing the best arthouse films to the Italian audience.

For this festival we will select only 10 short films that will be distributed in Italian cinemas for 3 months, from November until January, with more than 30 screenings all around Italy, and the best short film will be awarded 500 Euro in cash.

We believe that short films deserve to be distributed in cinemas just like movies do, that's why we are launching this festival in its 1st edition 2023-2024. To know more please check out the official festival page.


We will select 10 short films from around the world to be distributed in Italian cinemas from November until January, with more than 30 screenings in major Italian cities like: MILAN, TURIN, VENICE, TRIESTE, UDINE, BOLOGNA, REGGIO EMILIA, FLORENCE, PISA, ROME, PERUGIA, ANCONA, PESCARA, NAPLES, PALERMO and more...

From the selection, the Best Short Film will be awarded 500 Euro in cash and announced on the 9th of February at the final event in ROME, at the historic CINEMA FARNESE in Campo de' Fiori.
Other Awards will be assigned for:
Best Actor
