I’VE SEEN FILMS was founded by Rutger Hauer with the aim of promoting and uniting filmmakers, offering them new exposure and fresh and innovative platforms of visibility, where filmmakers are able to face each other on the common ground of the film language.

Bill Bristow (UK), Joan Chen (CINA), Jason Eisener (USA), Rossella Farinotti (ITA), Robert Harmon (USA), Valerio Moggia (ITA), Giuseppe Pizzo (ITA), Robert Rodriguez (USA), Gino Schiona (ITA) and Rutger Hauer are members of the 2012 International Jury.



The 2012 edition t
ook place in the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia-Lombardy Branch, the Institut Francais of Milan, and the Spazio Oberdan where the Gala Award Evening was held on October 19. Masterclasses and film events had, as usual, completed the Festival's enticing cultural offerings to film lovers.

This new-concept platform creates a new opportunity for filmmakers and offers the largest possible artistic choice to audiences all over the world.

I'VE SEEN FILMS, thanks to its original and innovative formula, has some unique components which make it stand out as an unparalleled cultural event.

It is one of the few film festivals in the world that has been founded and is directly managed by an international artist. Its main purpose is the promotion on a world-wide basis of the works of filmmakers who deserve exposure and visibility for their works but rarely achieve this from the classic-formula film festivals.

This is the first festival in which the short film competition is judged by an International Jury formed by so many notable artistic talents and experts of the film sector. It marks a turning point in this field.

The Festival's official language is English, which allows films authors and international attendees alike to overcome the obstacle represented by multi-ethnic language barriers.

Starting from the 2008 edition, the authors’ works have been screened, for the first time ever during any short film festival, in a masterfully high-definition digitalized version. This is an important aspect that is quite uncommon in this field since it requires highly professional technical knowledge. This format garners enthusiastic praises from audience and film authors alike.

The impressive Gala Award Evening, in which Rutger Hauer personally awards the winners, represents a very special moment for the authors who, together with their works, become the Festival’s real protagonists.

This new formula represents a merger of the best classic film festival traditions with the most advanced high-definition digital technology.

This has been a crucial challenge, proudly achieved since the very first edition.
