Nespresso Talents is an annual short film contest limited to films shot in a vertical 9:16 video format. This year's theme is "Virtuous Circles".

Virtuous circles are everywhere and they can be a powerful force for good. We want you to tell your story of how one good deed has changed something for the better, how it became a catalyst for something bigger than the action itself. Virtuous circles can be sparked by anything. From a small gesture that was repaid in kind, to bigger actions that have benefitted our world on a larger scale. Your story can feature friends, family, complete strangers, or imaginary characters. What’s important is that it tells your ‘Virtuous Circles’ story.

Film length: between 2 minutes minimum and 3 minutes maximum.
Vertical format (9/16).
All genres are welcome (e.g. comedy, drama, educational…) in the form of fiction, documentary, or animation.

Watch the winning videos from previous editions.
