Standardization and internationalization of competition rules
After joining the international short film alliance, this year's Ningbo micro Film Festival introduced the SFC International Short Film alliance standard and adjusted the competition rules of Ningbo micro Film Festival according to international standards. The main changes are as follows: 1. The duration of the main competition unit will be adjusted from no more than 60 minutes to no more than 30 minutes. 2. Take the lead in introducing the paid Short Film Exhibition System in China.
In order to protect the copyright and support the creators, we took the lead in launching the system of paid Short Film Exhibition in China. The organizing committee will pay the exhibition fee to the creators of the selected films, and change the original practice of free viewing of short films. The collected global excellent short films will be displayed offline in cinemas and other places, so as to gradually cultivate the habit of paying for short films.
3. Take the lead in introducing the short film selection system in China. In order to improve the level of entries, this year's Micro Film Festival has hired film selectors both at home and abroad. These film selectors have high film judging ability and appreciation level. They are mainly composed of founders and curators of short film festivals at home and abroad, experts and scholars engaged in film and television research, film and television teaching, film and television distribution, and the president of the national micro Film Association Foreign film selectors are mainly distributed in Asia and Europe. The selected films will be directly selected into the 5th Ningbo micro Film Festival, and the paid exhibition will be given priority; the works directly submitted by the creators to the mailbox of the organizing committee will be selected by other direct voters to enter the paid exhibition and jury selection.
The jury will finally judge the winners and winners from all the selected films.

Specialization and localization of platform functions
1. Strengthen the platform function of the micro Film Festival, and cooperate with film and television investment institutions to create film talents and film project incubation around the "golden snail Award". Last year, the fourth Ningbo micro Film Festival launched the "young director plan" long film incubation action for the first time, providing a total of 2 million yuan of project support funds for the outstanding works participating in the competition, which were used for script incubation, preparation and long film shooting. This year's Micro Film Festival will also launch script project venture capital and incubate high-quality products to help film and television industry in Ningbo. 2. Activate local products. This year, a short video unit and a script unit will be set up to help Ningbo film and television incubate high-quality products. The main purpose is to activate Ningbo local (or Ningbo related) short video creators to create Ningbo themed short films and scripts, and guide a large number of Ningbo up owners who are active in the mobile short video platform to invest in creation in the direction of "introducing China to the world and Ningbo to China". The tournament mode of "primary selection selection proposition creation" is adopted, and some funds are invested to help incubate the scripts.
Deepening and normalization of international cooperation
Focus on Asia and set up a film exhibition. Following the establishment of cooperation between the 4th Ningbo micro Film Festival and Pusan International Short Film Festival, this year, we will strengthen the cooperation of short films in Asian regions, cooperate with Pusan, Jeju, Japan, Iran and other short film festivals in South Korea, and set up the Asian short film exchange week through the international short film alliance SFC channel to display international short films in South Korea and Japan, and carry out short film salons, creative sharing and other exchange activities . 2. On the basis of the new short video unit, we plan to open "China (Ningbo) short film exhibition" in SFC overseas Short Film Festival to expand international exchanges.
This year is the first year for Ningbo micro Film Festival to join the international short film Alliance (SFC). In order to implement the spirit of the Eighth Plenary Session of the 13th CPC Ningbo Municipal Committee, on the basis of three competitions and four festivals, the fifth Ningbo micro Film Festival will continue to be characterized by "internationalization, specialization and industrialization", strengthen interaction in professional competition, international cooperation, resource service and external promotion, and create an international level film festival The short film competition platform helps Ningbo build a new highland of Zhejiang film and become a model student of "important window" of Zhejiang film.
