Quindici19 Contest

An International Short Film Contest for High School students born in 2014, out of the passion and ambition of a group of friends, convinced that cinema represented a powerful and unique communication tool for their peers.


Started as a school project, in just four editions Quindici19 has obtained international recognition, reaching over 600 filmmakers from more than 80 countries worldwide and transforming itself into a unique opportunity of ideas exchange between young artists and industry experts. How? Thanks to three days of fun, networking and educational activities in Rome.
