Official Selection

Collateral 102 introduces a new section called 'Short Film Guaranteed Screening' which screens all submitted films without any preselection from our side. BY SUBMITTING YOUR FILM TO THIS SECTION, IT WILL DEFINITELY BE SCREENED TO THE AUDIENCE DURING THE FESTIVAL.

Why are we doing this?

Today, there are over 10,000 film festivals worldwide, and the film selection processes are highly subjective and sometimes non-existent. Collateral 102, aware of the significant challenges filmmakers face in navigating the festival circuit, has decided to guarantee a section where the screening is 100% assured. This section is open to short films of all genres, including documentaries, with a maximum duration of 45 minutes.


The films submitted to the contest will remain in the files of the Festival and the video archive of the organization. The works will not be commercially exploited. Before any other different use, the authors will be contacted for receiving their agreement. The organization is taking reasonable security precaution to protect the copyright of the film submitted to the Festival.


Short films: For films lasting between 1 and 59 min.
Feature films: For films lasting at least 60 min.

Projects must be submitted online using the dedicated platforms.
