“A path is always between two points, but the in-between has taken on all the consistency
and enjoys both an autonomy and a direction of its own”  
G. Deleuze, F. Guattari, 1987

Based at the legendary DETOUR Arthouse Cinema, in the heart of Rome since 1997, ON THE ROAD FILM FESTIVAL is devoted to contemporary independent cinema – fiction, documentary and experimental – presenting travelogues, urban and waste-land wanderings, real or imaginary topographies, unexpected detours, psycho-geographical drifts, migration and nomadism.

We look for films that develop, through linguistic and narrative skills, a critical and inventive approach to the subject guidelines of the Festival: a traveling mood with digressions from fixed paths, where the route is what matters, not the destination.

The Festival hosts screenings, master classes, meetings, art exhibitions, live performances and music, both at DETOUR Cinema and at a variety of cinema venues, film clubs, schools, public libraries and other unusual locations in Rome and and in its surrounding area.

OTRFF 2019 competition consists of two sections: THE ROAD (Features and Mid-length films =>30′) and SHORT>CUTS (short films <30')

Features and Short Films in competition will be screened in October-December 2019.


CATEGORIES & ENTRY FEES 

  • The Road. Competitive section for FEATURES and MEDIUM-LENGTH FILMS (over 30 minutes) of any genre (narrative films, documentaries, animation, reportage, experimental films, tv shows, episodes/pilots of web/tv series, etc.) concerning topics such as travelogues, road trips, journeying, travels, nomadism, borderlands, boundaries, detouring, wilderness, urban or rural displacements, psycho-geographical drifts.
  • ShortCuts. Competitive section for SHORT FILMS (<=30 minutes) of any genre (narrative films, documentaries, animation, reportage, experimental films, tv shows, episodes of web/tv series, etc.) concerning topics such as travelogues, road trips, journeying, travels, nomadism, borderlands, boundaries, detouring, wilderness, urban or rural displacements, psycho-geographical drifts. Films must have been released after December 31, 2016.

In addition to the Competition, the festival offers a taste of international, independent “on the road” cinematography, within two more sections. The works that will not be selected for the contest can be proposed, at the discretion of the selectors and with the consent of the authors, for the two non-competitive sections:

  • Off the Map. It focuses on works that depicts a country, a nation or a specific geographic area or cultural/linguistic belonging; selections from other international film festivals and retrospectives are also included.
  • Across Borders. Section out of the contest. “on the road” encounters embracing cinema, literature, music and performative arts: screenings with live music score, workshops and master classes, shows for kids, exhibitions, readings and other live performances.
