X World Short Film Festival is an IMDb-qualifying Festival for Independent Filmmakers from all over the World, that dare to eXpress their fantasy, creativity and crazy ideas through Short Films and Scripts.

If your creation produces one or more of the following reactions (in alphabetical order):
"This is crazy!!" 
"Wait! What??!!"
...and if you think that it will make the audience feel amazed-excited-thrilled-amused, then this Festival is for you!

X World is about exciting and amazing stories, fun intrigues, new themes, unusual points of view, mysteries!
The purpose is to find, showcase, promote and award such kind of interesting works, made with Love and passion for the art of eXpression, no matter the budget or technical resources.

The Festival has been created by an Independent Filmmaker that knows, understands, Loves the world of Independent Filmmaking and knows how it feels like to have one's own work showcased and appreciated!
Every submitted Project is watched (or read) by the Judges with maximum attention and dedication, to fully consider and honor the eXpressive talent and work of all the Artists involved.


The Summer Edition will take place in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) on August 28 - September 6 (venue info coming soon).
It will be part of the great and famous AOF MEGAFEST, 16 years historical point of reference for Directors, Actors, Producers, Distributors.
A big Event that includes multiple Festivals, with multi-theatres screenings in a beautiful place, inspiring seminars, exciting parties and interesting opportunities to start new cooperations and friendships.

ATTENTION: Based on recent global events, many of our vendors and partners CAN NOT Guarantee that their business or service will be available to us based in circumstances beyond their control. State and Federal mandates may prohibit them from offering their services.
In response to these developments the "X WORLD SHORT FILM FESTIVAL" events at MEGAFEST will offer an Online Event from August 28 - September 1, 2020 and our Live Event in Las Vegas from September 2 to September 6, 2020.
Should Federal or State leaders close locations and vendors at that time, the ENTIRE "X WORLD SHORT FILM FESTIVAL" Program will be held Online. Thank you!

The Winter Edition will then take place in Rome (Italy) at "Teatro degli Eroi di Roma" (TBA).
