Oltrecorto

In occasion of the first Torino Short Film Market, which will take place on the 18th, 19th and 20th of November 2016 in Turin, the Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio / Italian Short Film Center is launching a call for feature film, TV series, digital and gaming projects that are a development of an already produced short film. The short films and projects will be presented during a pitch to an audience of producers and broadcasters who are searching for talent with the aim of creating a bridge between the world of short films and that of production.

It is often said that a short film is the training ground of a feature film. With Oltrecorto a short film can become the showcase of talent, vision, and writing, of those who desire to evolve into more complex forms that require larger budgets.

Who is it for

The call is open to directors and writers of any age and country who have produced a short film and would like to have it evolve into a feature film, TV series, digital or even a game.
