Any self-respecting second edition must ring some changes. Sure enough, after putting down its roots, Cactus International Children’s and Youth Film Festival has every intention of growing, just like a real cactus does.

One of the innovations of the 2022 edition is Flip Your Vision, a contest dedicated to short films made by pupils at school. Flip Your Vision was created to establish a dialogue with every type of school in Italy. With Cactus Edu pupils are our target audience, whereas with Flip Your Vision they have the opportunity to become the authors and, through audiovisual aids, express what is most important to them.

Flip Your Vision will carefully collect these voices and visions, presenting a different theme for each edition.

This year’s theme is “Green Visions: our views on the environment and on sustainability through the connection with our land”. We are convinced that children and teens have so much to say about the environment and the respect we ought to pay to our planet: this initiative aims to give them the chance to be seen and heard that they deserve.

The contest is divided into three sections, each for a different age group:

  • Early Childhood and Primary school;
  • Middle school;
  • High school.

The winning schools, one for each section, will receive a cash prize. The official award ceremony will take place in May 2022, during the week of the Cactus International Children’s and Youth Film Festival. During that same week, some selected short films will be aired on Rai Gulp (channel 42 of Italian television) on the daily programme for teens, “Explorandom”.


How to apply: you only need to send a short film of maximum 2 minutes and 30 seconds, filmed vertically with your smartphone or tablet. While it is true that the vertical format is quite different from the standards of traditional cinema, it fits perfectly with those of new technologies and, let’s face it, it’s perfect if you want to end up on stories and various social networks.
