The Festival wants to combine Cinema, History and Education, by welcoming short films from all over the world, which can represent, through their subjects, one of the most relevant aspects of the European history over the last century.

The final evening of the Festival, that will take place in Ascoli Piceno, has been planned for 9th November 2019, exactly 30 years after the Fall of the Berlin wall, a key moment for the history of the contemporary Europe, a meaningful event that opened a brand new horizon.
