Torino Short Film Market



The Torino Short Film Market is a leading reality in the short film world like it is for audiovisuals in general. After three editions in which the market features have clearly been established, the TSFM has also drawn the identikit of an ideal audience made up of film and TV professionals, young talent, new language and new technology operators. However, for it to continue to be alive and appealing, a market event has to continually renew itself and know how to read the contemporary scene.

The Torino Short Film Market, is becoming more international while remaining local, as it is part of the Piedmont production context which is being consolidated thanks to the creation of “Torino Film Industry” network which, in addition to us, federates the Torino Film Lab and Production Days of the Film Commission Torino Piemonte, in the course of the Torino Film Festival.
