18th Rome Film Festival

Rome, Italy, October 18 to 29, 2023


(Features-length films; all genres)

The International Rome Film Festival is currently accepting entries for its upcoming edition.




The Rome Film Festival is organised by the Fondazione Cinema per Roma which is also one of the partners of the MIA – International Audio-visual Market. The festival is run by a new administrative and artistic direction since 2022.

The festival has an international competitive section, PROGRESSIVE CINEMA – Visions of Today for the World of Tomorrow, that presents 18 titles, with no distinction between fiction, documentary, and animated films. Two non-competitive sections complete the competition, FREESTYLE, consisting of around 15 titles of free formats, lengths and styles, and the GRAND PUBLIC section, devoted to cinema for a wider audience, with a priority given to films with an international premiere status. 20th Alice Nella Città, an independent and parallel sidebar with its own organization and regulations, presents a selection of youth-oriented films.
