The Castellaneta Short Movie Festival
Schermata 2013-07-17 alle 15.04.53

Clinging to the breathtaking gorge in Castellaneta, suspended between reality and fantasy in a vortex of beauty. This natural landscape is now the aim of an urban renovation and environmental improvement policy by Pro Loco, a local association promoting the development of this area. A Festival inspired by the myth of Rudolph Valentino, who helped the shy beauty of this landscape find eyes to see it. Castellaneta will be the unaware lady of the house of up-and-coming artists who have drawn and will draw inspiration from its scenario.
This is where our Festival will take place. And this amazing scenario is what makes us unique!
1st-2nd-3rd August 2013, Palazzo Baronale – Castellaneta

“The Variable” at CastFilmFest

Posted Leave a commentPosted in blog


“L’incognita” (The Variable) is a story about a middle-aged man who loses his job and can no longer manage to get back on track again. As he uselessly looks around for a new employment, Silvano realizes that his age and his spotless resume, built over years of commitment, now hardly work to his benefit. 
It does not look like there are many options left for him, especially right in the middle of such a major economic crisis.
Still, Silvano has got a family to provide for and dues to pay and cannot allow himself to just let go. Regardless his efforts though, there is no light at the end of the tunnel for him apparently and he eventually breaks down in total dismay. 
Then he starts thinking about his life insurance policy and begins to fiddle with the idea of killing himself in order to grant a decent life to his family. Something unexpected will make him change his mind.

No ‘Solitude of Prime Numbers’ for the first 100 short movies  sent to the CastFilmFest.

And what about the lines? The first shooting? The emotions?
Who knows how many stories, smiles and tears are behind these 100 short masterpieces.
Looking for the new Ron Howard, in the festival dedicated to the Myth; waiting for the other  100 first (second and third) films, we would like to remind you that all the greatest legends had their own beginning, and the Cast Film Festival could be yours.
After all…..this is the first CAST FILM FEST for us too!
