Souq Film Festival

SOUQ FILM FESTIVAL (SFF) - Urban Suffering on Films - is a film festival exploring the theme of Urban Suffering in its broadest sense by showcasing a collection of fiction and documentary short films from emerging as well as established filmmakers. The festival believes that promoting films that tackle prisoner’s justice, mental health, immigration and equality issues is a means to celebrate richness and diversity, to dispel negative stereotypes and to promote a culture of inclusion and understanding.

The 6th edition of the festival, organized by Urban Suffering Studies Center – Fondazione Casa della Carità under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan and in cooperation with Piccolo Teatro of Milan, will be held at the Chiostro Nina Vinchi of Piccolo Teatro Grassi (Via Rovello, 2) on November 10, 11, 12, 2017.

Competition entry requirements

The competition is open to short films from any country to a maximum length of 30 minutes (including opening and closing credits) in 2 different categories: documentary and fiction. Any genre is accepted.

There is no restriction for the entry of films which have participated in previous competitions, festivals or similar events, or which have previously received an award. There is no restriction in the number of entries one can submit to this contest, but each one must be accompanied by its own completed submission form and entry fee.
