The video library of the Torino Short Film Market offers some hundreds of short films, selected by Massimiliano Nardulli and Enrico Vannucci during the course of the year with this event in mind. The selection was geared towards products which could best meet the expectations of the market operators who have been invited and are present here.

The video library, in addition to being an in-house research engine through which users can carry out personalized research, provides various theme programs compiled by art directors, which last – about one hour and a half – like a quality short films festival but also seeking out products which suit other platforms and media. Lastly, our video library hosts and promotes the most up-to-date catalogues of various European and international distributors.
