Gargantua Film is a distribution and sales agency focused on the promotion of auteur shorts that are able to remain imprinted over time.
We believe that the more a film is capable of being personal, reflecting the gaze and soul of its author, the more powerful and universal its ability to remain imprinted in the minds of an international audience will be.
This is why we have built our distribution around the enhancement of the relationships we establish with our authors and our goal is to be able to create a bridge between young emerging talents and the main international festivals.
The choice of a Moai monolith as our symbol, and our motto Shorts that stay. represent exactly our will to give our shorts the possibility not to disappear and to have a life even after the end of their festival journey.
Every year we select a limited number of short films with the aim of working on each of them in a personalized way. It is essential for us to establish close collaboration with our producers and directors, sharing knowledge and experiences in order to make the most of their works.
In its first year of Gargantua activity, our films have amassed more than 50 official selections (including Oscar® and European Film Award circuit festivals), being selected in prestigious international festivals such as Flickerfest, PalmSprings Short Fest, Dublin IFF, Rabat International Author Film Festival, Cork IFF, Festival de Cine de La Habana, Trieste Science + Fiction Festival, Izmir IFF, Guangzhou IFF, Cinemed – Festival Cinema Mediterranéen Montpellier, MedFilm Festival – Mediterranean and European Film Festival, BendFilm Festival and many others.
If a short film enters the Gargantua family it is because we really believe in its potential and this will be the main reason that will push us to want it to go as far as possible.
