Statuette – Opi Soulplace Film FestivalJune 8, 2023
A festival straight into the incredible Abruzzo National Park
Opi Soulplace Film Festival is an international competition with live screenings open to filmmakers from all over the world. It takes place in the small town of Opi (in the middle of Abruzzo National Park, Italy) and its purpose is to help independent cinematography talents and filmmakers to improve their career.
Located in a splendid natural amphitheater, Opi still retains the characteristics of an ancient medieval village.
The seventeenth-century palace, the Romanesque church of Santa Maria Assunta and the chapel of San Giovanni Battista, built in the Baroque era, are just some of the symbolic places of the small urban center to discover.

We want to support as many filmmakers as possible, all over the world, motivating them to always improve, always give their best and never stop dreaming.
The event involves not only filmmakers and the public, but also the whole territory as well.
We accept films of all genres and also shorts, in the form of narrative (fiction), documentary (non fiction) or animation.
Award-winning films will be screened in public before the award ceremony. *All winners will receive an official laurel and a free ready for print certificate.
By submitting your film, you declare to know and accept that we can promote some of the films by uploading the trailers and/or teasers or posters and production stills and so you allow us to use them for free, for promotional purpose. However the films will never be available online.
Submission fees cover administration costs and therefore they are non-refundable. Multiple entries are allowed for each filmmaker and each entry may be entered in multiple categories.
We do not accept:
– poor standards or amateur movies (bad sound, lack of subtitles/captions for non-English films, video resolution less than 720p HD);
