"Heroes" is the first Italian festival dedicated to the relationship between Cinema and Visual Arts.

"Heroes" is an international festival focused on sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thriller, action-adventure, cinecomics and cross-over films, short movies and series.

"Heroes" pays particular attention to new forms of storytelling and visual identity, digital and special effects, transmedia projects and sound design.

Also part of the festival are the Heroes Film School, with masterclasses and workshops, and the Hall of Heroes, an exhibit dedicated to cinema and "genre" series.

The heart of the festival consists of three main categories.

Universes, a panorama selection of genre movies from all over the world, with premieres and special events.

Stories, two competitions divided in:
International Short films Competition - an unmissable overview of short films realized by indie productions, new authors and great artists.
International Graduation Films Competition, with the diploma shorts of international cinema, filmmaking and visual arts schools and universities.

Storyworld, a selection of great classics of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thriller, action, adventure, cinecomics and cross-over features, series, works and original products from global theatrical and home entertainment distribution.

The fourth edition of Heroes International Film Festival will be held December 13-14, 2023 at Casa del Cinema in Rome and December 15 at IED - Istituto Europeo di Design, Rome.
