Logo short film festival edizione 2021
The organizers of Corto weekend and Premio Cartolina, after several editions of short movies festivals and contests, are now presenting the third edition of VW BUS Short Film Festival.

The short movies festival, organized by EventiAvanti, is born out of two passions: the one for VW buses (T1 to T6 models included) and the other one for cinema and short movies.
