​MalatestaShort is an international short film festival based in Cesena - Italy.Our programme includes a selection of films from all over the world, divided into four competitive categories:

The festival, which will be held at the "Cinema Eliseo Multisala", is made up not only of film screenings, but also of meetings and collateral events.

This project was born out of some friend’s love for cinema, we are passionate about its most essential form: the short film. Our goal is to promote cinema culture and cinema “in short” in particular, to show it as a versatile instrument for young talents to express themselves and make themselves known.
