VIA DEI CORTI – INDEPENDENT SHORT FILM FESTIVAL

REGULATION AND COMPETITION ANNOUNCEMENT
1. The municipality of Gravina di Catania and the cultural associations “Gravina Arte” and “No_Name”, organize the event “Via dei Corti” – 3rd edition of the Independent Short Film Festival.

2. The contest is open to national and international short films, published or unpublished. Short films already selected in other festivals are admitted to participate.

3. Short films of any genre are admitted to the selection, provided they last no more than 20 minutes. Specifically, the animated short films submitted will compete for a dedicated section called “CORTI D’ANIMAZIONE” (see point 3.1). The artistic direction reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to also include in the final selection works longer than 20 minutes, in case these are deemed particularly deserving.

3.1. All animated short films will automatically compete for the section “CORTI D’ANIMAZIONE”, since they are implicitly excluded from award schemes and from any cash prizes of the international competition. In the present case, a technical jury will award the recognition as BEST ANIMATED FILM (plaque of recognition).

4. The author shall reply to the content of his works.

5. The artistic direction will select, at its absolute discretion, the finalist short films from among all the works submitted. The selected works will be screened on the days when the festival will take place according to a schedule which will be promptly notified. A dedicated technical jury, chaired by a personality from the film world, will assign the following awards:

GRAND PRIZE OF € 500.00 TO THE BEST FILM

Plaques of recognition and parchment certificates for:
