When East Meets West and Trieste Film Festival are proud to present This is IT, a competition exclusively dedicated to long feature fiction films and hybrid works with a strong visual and artistic approach produced or co-produced by Italian producers.
The main purpose is to create a unique showcase of high quality Italian independent cinema where selected teams have the chance to present their works and screen their films to an exclusive panel of more than 30 international sales agents, festival programmers and buyers.
An international jury delivers a special in kind prize of the value of approximately 10.000 EUR.
Thanks to the partnership with Milano Film Network (MFN), all films submitted to “L’Atelier MFN” and to “This is IT” will be shared and considered by both selection committees.
The main goal is to offer a dual opportunity to all Italian producers, fostering their chances to attract distribution partners on a national and international level.
