Following the great success of the First Edition of the Asylum Fantastic Fest, which saw over 2,500 presences, over 30 Italian and international guests, about 300 films sent in selection, the Valmontone Culture Department and the OutOut Art Workshop the selections for the Second Edition open.

Born from the idea of ​​the Founder Claudio Miani, it is located in the heart of Lazio, in Valmontone, to become a reference point at national and international level for lovers of the genre, in a vision of long-term cultural project capable of bringing further emphasis , prestige and tourism to the entire territorial area.

An Art Festival as a "living cultural" project, where we do not just want to understand the culture in which we live, the actualization of the theme and the expressive form linked to the world of Horror and Fantastico, but with a wider range, all those experiences with their own roots and those evolutions developed by them, which in the positive sense of globalization interchange themselves in new cultural realities. It is therefore a question of interpreting a world by giving it a new form, perceiving its contents and aspirations in order to manifest them and communicate them through cinema, literature, music, performing arts, comics, animation and live contests. A research full of stimuli and hints, of new linguistic compositions and symbolic horizons, which are best expressed in a visual, narrative and structured diegesis, able to offer new genre perspectives.

The main purpose of the Asylum Fantastic Fest is to provide real visibility and support to the excellence of horror creativity, promoting realities and works that are able to provide new content readings and above all to confront the new 2.0 languages. The search for new trends and the opening up to currently non-standardized basins, allows us to guarantee the realization of a Festival capable of acting as a multi-year point of reference for a current that has always been looking for stimuli and developments. An event that wants to be an opportunity to stimulate collaboration between young Italian and international artists, offering moments of meeting and exchange for the sections present at the Festival.

Contamination is the word that contains sufficiently and clearly the importance that the Asylum Horror Fest reserves in this first edition and will reserve in those to come, the encounter between the different artistic forms. Working in a non-formal environment, where all the entities involved will be jointly responsible for the organization, it will be possible to reach the common goal of creating an expressive context where each of the participants can express their creative potential.

Our flagship event is our annual Women's History Month film festival, which allows us to showcase and honor the work of established and emerging independent filmmakers who are predominately women, that tell women's stories of faith, courage, hope, determination and fortitude. We also sponsor screenings of independent films of social relevance throughout the year. For "We Do What We Do Because," our 2020 film festival we are especially interested in films that explore the cause and effect of women's issues. We welcome creative, experimental and fresh approaches to story telling, looking to include stories of contemporary issues including migration, human sexuality, child marriage, violence against women and achievement, as well as narratives that tell fresh stories of relationships, self image and resilience. Our criteria is flexible, so please submit your work!

The TRAVEL FilmFest (TRAFF) international film festival collects the best travel films from around the world, which were created both by professionals and by enthusiasts, and helps to get them across to the audience.

Travels can be different: with money or without it, lasting for one day or for a couple of years, by buses and trains, by cars and motorcycles, by bicycles and by foot, in your neighbourhood or to the opposite end of the Earth, alone or as a group, with prefabricated route and spontaneous, independent or organized, "all-inclusive" or limited. This list can go to infinity.

All types of travel have only one thing in common - they are never boring.

Nowadays any traveller takes along his photo or video camera, his smartphone. There is nothing easier than uploading a non-processed travel video to the Internet. As a result, the web is stuffed with "trash" videos, in which the real travel films, which are carefully designed, well
shot and intelligently assembled, simply drown.

The task of our festival is to draw attention to such films. To films that are worth watching.

If you are shooting travel films, you are likely to have a strong desire to share your impressions.

With those who are interested in travelling, and travelling of the exact type and style, which you are attracted by the most. With those who will evaluate your work. With those who will follow your example. With those who will join you in your next trip. With those who will participate in the creation of your next film.

Our festival is created to find and unite all of these people.

People travel all year round - without any weekends and holidays. Therefore, our festival is held all year round. The provisional results are summed up once per quarter, at the end of the season - winter, spring, and summer. Every autumn the best films are shown on a big screen, and the winners are determined.

The films, which were selected to participate in the festival, will be uploaded to be displayed on our website and in the social networks - as a complete artwork (only with the consent of the author) or as a trailer for the wide view and discussion. Authors will be able to obtain feedback from the thankful or displeased viewers.

All best films that were selected during the online festival, will be shown on the big screen during the solemn final ceremony on October 24-25, 2020 in Limassol (Lemesos) on the island of Cyprus and will be able to struggle for the main prize and the title of the "Best travel film". As well as for the prizes in the standalone nominations.

We admit only the films about travels, both modern and historical ones. As well as those films, where travel is an important part of the synopsis. Fiction, production, animated and documentary films on any types of travel and adventures on the water and in the air, on land and under it, in the mountains and forests, on seas, rivers, lakes, swamps, about hiking, ski trek, rides on public transport, on vehicles and motorcycles, bikes, hitch-hiking, bus tours, pilgrimage tours, round-the-world trips... As well as web-series and music videos, the storyline of which is based on travel.

Not all creators of travel films are necessarily the professionals, who work in the movies industry or on television. This is just a hobby for the majority of contestants. However, this does not mean that their films are worse. The original story that is told in the film plays a far more important role than its budget or the awards of its creator. You can make a good film even if you do not have a large budget, stellar cast and a large production team. You hold the keys to the kingdom. Go ahead!
