Description: For all Fantasy Film Fans and Young Filmmakers/Screenwriters between 18 and 36 years old!
Objective: CINEFANTASY International Short Film Screenwriting Competition is an International Young Talents Project dedicated to discovering and supporting emerging writing talents. We welcome scenarios from anywhere in the world. We are looking forward to reading your scenario!

Why Fantasy?

Fantastic films push the boundaries of the imagination to another realm where anything in this world, other worlds, or even the entire universe, can exist. Writing the fantastic screenplay requires creating a world and its population in which the audience will curiously and excitedly take the leap of faith with the author, and not only believe and understand what is actually occurring, but care about it.

Our target is to give an opportunity to young people of any origin, to express themselves and to have the opportunity to open up a world that seems inaccessible for them or restricted only to a few privileged group; and to provide young talents an international platform to present their ideas and creations in an audiovisual world.
