Alessio Cremonini will receive the Cinema of the Present Award 2019

Alessio Cremonini will receive the Cinema of the Present Award 2019, which ShorTS awards yearly to highlight the extraordinary talent of Italian filmmakersThe director of On my skin will also hold a Masterclass on Friday 5 July at Trieste Penitentiary in the presence of a group of prisoners, who at the end of the festival will also award the special prize “Oltre il muro” to the best Italian short film in the Maremetraggio section.

The exciting film Sulla mia pelle is the story of the last days of Stefano Cucchi and of the week that changed his family’s life forever; a work that has won over audiences and critics, achieving great success at the David di Donatello 2019 where Alessio Cremonini was honoured as Best New-coming Director and Alessandro Borghi for Best Actor in a Leading Role. The film will be screened in Trieste with the filmmaker present on Thursday 4th July at 8.00 pm at the Miela Theater. At 9.30 pm on the same day in Piazza Verdi, the director Alessio Cremonini will receive the Cinema Award of the Present, an award through which the Trieste festival highlights the extraordinary talent of the Italian filmmaker.

The director’s Masterclass at ShorTS 2019 is part of a project that the Maremetraggio Association has been organizing in collaboration with En.A.I.P for several years, offering professional training courses in audio-visual techniques within the Trieste Prison, allowing the possibility for a select group of prisoners to acquire the basics of these techniques so that they can be integrated into society and into the world of work. The group that will attend the Cremonini Masterclass is in fact following a 400-hour professional course (started in April and ending in December), at the end of which they will be given a professional certificate.

This group of inmates will also form the jury that each year awards the special “Oltre il Muro” prize for the best Italian short film in competition at the ShorTS International Film Festival in the Maremetraggio section, a historic competitive section dedicated to short films already awarded at major international festivals.

The 24H ShorTS Comics Marathon Jury

For the third year in a row, cinema meets comic at ShorTS International Film Festival 2019, the Triestine festival running from June 28th to July 6th, which confirms the 24H ShorTS Comic Marathon for the Festival’s 20th birthday.

It’s a free contest which will be dedicated to aspiring cartoonists of all ages who want to test themselves in an artistic marathon, where they will have to produce a comic strip with at least 12 panels in ink and/or colour, all within a square border. The winning comic will be published and distributed free of charge, first on ShorTS’ Instagram page and then on paper, within a real comic book, which will then be distributed for free by our two Triestine comic event partners, Fantastylandia and Neopolis.

The marathon will be held in Piazza della Borsa from 17.00 on Saturday 29th June until 17.00 on Sunday 30th June. It is free to enter the competition and has a maximum limit of 15 people. You can register from our official ENTRY FORM.

In particular, the 2019 edition of the marathon will be composed by the animator and illustrator Dr. Pira, author of ‘I fumetti della Gleba’ and ‘Super relax’, which were awarded the Micheluzzi 2019 Award at Napoli Comicon, and other series from Repubblica, Vice Magazine and Smemoranda. We also have the comic creator/screenwriter of the critically acclaimed film ‘Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot’ and the comic creator/designer Giopota, who made the panels for ‘Gennaio’ and ‘A year without you’ written by Luca Vanzella, published by BAO Publishing and illustrator Ilaria Palleschi, author of the graphic novel ‘Nina che disagio’.

The film of the Shorts Virtual Reality 2019 section

After last years’ success, the 20th edition of ShorTS Film Festival will once again confirm ShorTS Virtual Reality; a whole section dedicated to shorts shot with VR technology, in collaboration with proEsof and the Trieste Observatory.

For 4 evenings from the 2nd-5th July, the Teatro Verdi foyer will hold viewings of the 13 works in competition: the surroundings of the theatre will be transformed into a cinematographic virtual room, where spectators can experiment with this new technology through a group viewing. Throughout the festival, it will also be possible to test out VR in Piazza della Borsa, where a virtual room will also be set up with 2 individual booths with headsets and viewing chairs.

Virtual Reality returns to Trieste. After last years’ success, the 20th edition of ShorTS International Film Festival, running from June 28th to July 6th, has reconfirmed the competitive section ShorTS Virtual Reality, a whole section dedicated to shorts shot with VR technology, in collaboration with proEsof and the Trieste Observatory.

The section is scheduled for 4 evenings between July 2nd and July 5th and will be held in the foyer of Teatro Verdi, where the 13 viewings of the works in competition will take place. The surroundings of the theatre will be transformed into a cinematographic virtual room, where spectators can experiment with this new technology through a group viewing, made possible with the technological assistance of IKON, a leading regional VR company and digital partner of the festival.

This year, the section will oversee 13 shorts in competition, carried out with VR technology in both monoscopic and stereoscopic versions. The winning short will be awarded with the Estenergy-Gruppo Hera prize of a 2000-euro sum. Also, up for grabs is the Rai Cinema Channel Prize which consists of purchasing the web rights to the short, with a sum of 3000 euros and distribution on the new app Rai Cinema Channel VR. New this year, there is also the premio del Pubblico from Trieste’s Piccolo Newspaper; media partner of the festival.

The 13 shorts come from France, Germany, Finland, the UK, Taiwan, Argentina, Turkey, Israel and of course, Italy, whilst the genres range from fictional shorts to the highly experimental, touching on great current themes, all done with VR technology, thanks to which the technology is fastly becoming a new means of artistic expression; offering to ShorTS’ spectators a new way of experiencing cinematographic art.

Thanks to this VR technology, it will be possible to live unimaginable and extraordinary experiences, such as the short Everest – The VR Film Experience by Jon Griffith, which will take the viewer all the way to the peak of the tallest mountain in the world. We also have the highly immersive work Wombsong by Hanna Vastislao, which thanks to this technology she is able to recreate the fascinating sensation of being inside the womb of a pregnant woman. There is also ‘Conscious existence’ by German Marc Zimmermann, which transports the viewer to the edges of the earth and universe.

Current themes are also greatly explored in the selected shorts, such as those confronted in Borderline by Assaf Machnes, previously shown at Biennale VR in Venice, which allows the spectator to experience first-hand the apprehensions of a young Israeli soldier stationed at the border. Paris Terror – The Hostages from the Hyper Cacher by Ricarda Saleh also touches on current themes; it rebuilds the attack on the Jewish shop Hyper Cacher in Paris, carried out two days after the Charlie Hebdo attack.

We also have 2 Italian shorts: Drumpossibile by Omar Rashid is a documentary-style short in which the drummer Fabio Vitiello reveals new ways of conceiving art, music, and by extension, reality itself. The other Italian short is Denoise by Giorgio Ferrero e Federico Biasin; a journey of words, sounds and shapes in which we lose ourselves, where VR allows the viewer to immerse themselves in an unthinkable world.

Moreover, this year in Piazza della Borsa, a space will be set up and dedicated to VR viewings: a virtual room in the heart of Trieste, where the spectators will be able to check out all of the shorts in competition.

Inside the virtual room, there will be 2 separate stations where the public will have the opportunity to see the shorts for free from 10am to 8pm. Each station will be equipped with a headset and a rotating chair that will allow you to envision the shorts in 360 degrees and put forward a new way of experiencing cinema.

For the shorts who aren’t in competition, we have In the Cave by the Gorizian director Ivan Gergolet along with the photography of Antonio Giacomin. It’s an immersive VR short which was presented at the 75 International Show of Cinematographic Art in the Venice Virtual Reality section. The short is born from the fascination for the world underground and the sense of beauty, danger, protection and loss in time and space that it produces. Exploring the metaphor of the cave as the maternal womb, In the Cave guides the spectator around the mysteries of life before life as we know it.

Friday 5th July, we have two panels scheduled which are dedicated to the relationship between VR and Astronomy, Speleology and Neuroscience. These two meetings will explore the possible scientific applications within this revolutionary technology, organized in collaboration with proESOF (EuroScience Open Forum), the most important European event focused on the debate between science, technology, society and politics.

The first panel, organized in collaboration with Trieste Observatory, will deal with the profondities of the Earth and space. From VR to speleology and space. During this panel, researchers, astronomers, speleologists and directors will discuss their ways of explaining and retelling their world; surfacing many overlapping points between speleology, space and VR.

The second event will be The mind and VR, in which psychologists, neuroscientists and researchers will discuss the relationship between the mind and experiences in VR; explaining how our brain reacts to VR stimuli and how it perceives VR narrations.

The 11 films of the section Nuove Impronte 2019

“Nuove Impronte” at ShorTS International Film Festival, telling the stories of contemporary Italy

The 2019 selection features a wide range of genres, ranging from comedy to sports films, social dramas to documentaries, the works of eleven Italian directors not yet established in the public sphere but already appreciated for their courage and talent.

The “Nuove Impronte” sections is inspired by new and upcoming Italian directors appreciated for their talents despite not yet being known to the general public. This is a competitive section in its 20th edition, choosing the best works of emerging Italian cinema. There will be 11 titles in competition in a varied selection, bringing together comedy, social drama, sports, experimental works and documentary. These works ranging from north to south represent an inclusive Italy, one that is open to the world and diversity, and one that tells the stories of present generations, intimate love and the desire for redemption, in its own innovative and original way.

Never before – comments journalist and critic Beatrice Fiorentino, curator of the section – has the selection embraced such a wide spectrum of genres and tones. This variety is united by the commitment, observed within all the directors, to observe and question the complexity of the present. What emerges is a beautiful, inclusive and altruistic Italy that has no intention of surrendering to rampant cynicism and indifference. An Italy that, despite the difficulties it faces, still believes in respect, friendship and love.”

Among the jurors of the Nuove Impronte section are the director and screenwriter Alessio Cremonini, author of the award-winning film ‘Sulla mia pelle’ that tells the last days of the life of Stefano Cucchi, and the actor Vinicio Marchioni, unforgettable in the role of Freddo in the series ‘Romanzo criminale’ by Stefano Sollima and who also features in numerous Italian films, including ‘The Place’ by Paolo Genovese and ‘Ma cosa ci dice il cervello’ by Riccardo Milani. Also on the jury are actresses Sara Serraiocco, who starred in ‘In viaggio con Adele’, and Elena Cucci, who starred in ‘A casa tutti bene’ by Gabriele Muccio and ‘Se non rose…’ by Leonardo Pieraccioni. The final member of the jury lineup is Gianluca Guzzo, CEO and co-founder of MYmovies, a film information site.

FILM IN COMPETITION IN THE ‘NUOVE IMPRONTE’ SECTION 2019

The World is Flat (2018) by Matteo Caregga Bertolini – In his debut film, set in Paris, Matteo Carrega Bertolini, born in 1990 and raised in France, Switzerland and Italy, recounts the friendship between Jean and Antoine, struggling with the uncertainties of life. An intimate and personal work, a buddy-movie that pays tribute to the unforgettable ‘Nouvelle Vague’ era. (ITALIAN PREVIEW)

Beautiful Things (2017) by Giorgio Ferrero and Federico Biaso – The first film directed by composer Giorgio Ferrero and director of photography Federico Biasin, who together give life to a powerful and visionary work, a symphony of images and sounds to tell the story of the consumerist obsession in our contemporary world.

Bangla (2019) by Phaim Bhuiyan – For his debut feature on the big screen, Phaim Bhuiyan, here in the role of both director and leading actor, chooses the language of comedy with autobiographical elements to portray the everyday life of a young Muslim who lives with his family in Torpignattara, a multiethnic district of Rome.

Selfie (2019) by Agostino Ferrente – A documentary made up entirely of glances, which brings the theory of images to the forefront. Agostino Ferrente asks two sixteen-year-olds from the Trajan district of Naples to talk about themselves with their smartphone camera, in the same place where, in the summer of 2014, the young Davide Bifolco died on the run from the police who had mistaken him for a fugitive.

The Champion (2019) by Leonardo D’Agostini – A debut feature by Leonardo D’Agostini that tells the story of football as a metaphor for life and sport as an opportunity for redemption. A special friendship unites the protagonists Stefano Accorsi and the talented Andrea Carpenzano.

Fiore gemello (2019) by Laura Luchetti – A film about love, exile and the search for a life elsewhere. Starring Basim and Anna, two survivors: she is fleeing the violence of a man, while he has escaped to Italy from the Ivory Coast. A work playing out on the road that is both harsh and delicate.

Storia dal qui (2018) by Eleonora Mastropietro – Born in Milan, Eleonora Mastropietro makes a journey back to the discovery of her origins. She leaves for Ascoli Satriano, in the Puglian hinterland, the municipality from which her parents come. Through the documentary genre and a groundbreaking use of the device, the director tries to form an image of this unknown land for herself.

Dulcinea (2018) by Luca Ferri – An experimental filmmaker with a surrealist touch, Luca Ferri chooses the characters of Dulcinea and Don Quixote as archetypal images of another possible story: the story of a man and a woman, of a desire that cannot be realised, and of a hopeless obsession. The first in an internal trilogy and filmed in 16mm, with an eye to the solitudes and fetishes of the cinematic works of Ferreri and Buñuel.

Riccordi? (2019) by Valerio Mieli – After “Dieci inverni”, Valerio Mieli returns to tell the story of a couple. The result is a long love story, told only through memories, often distorted by moods and time, and told from the point of view of the young protagonists (Luca Marinelli and Linda Caridi). An ambitious and at the same time fragile story, that is stubbornly romantic.

Normal (2019) by Adele Tulli – A journey through habits, within the reassuring boundaries of stereotypes and the gender conventions of today’s Italy, and through the divisions we call masculine and feminine, in search of the impossible and arbitrary meaning of the concept of “normality”.

Un giorno all’improvviso (2018) by Ciro d’Emilio – Expectations, ambitions and dreams that break into the banality of reality. Through Antonio’s family history and his dream of becoming a footballer, rookie Ciro d’Emilio faces the transition to adulthood, along with the responsibilities it entails. At the forefront is the love story between a son and a mother, played by Giampiero De Concilio and Anna Foglietta.

The films in competition will compete for the Crédit Agricole FriulAdria Award for Best Film, the Critics Award awarded by the SNCCI, the Best Production Award awarded by AGICI and the ANAC Award for Best Screenplay.

The MYmovies award chosen by the general public has also been confirmed.

Revealed the ShorTS 2019 official poster!

A special cake to celebrate the 20 years of ShorTS!

It’s ShorTS 20th birthday! They key to any good birthday party is friends, fun and food, therefore cake is the running theme of this year’s poster art. Originally, to take the cake meant to win a prize or a competition — people as far back as the ancient Greeks used the word cake to mean “a symbolic prize.” It’s essentially an idiomatic way of saying that something has won top marks or is the best in its field, and here at ShorTS we strive every year to organise the best festival we possibly can – one that really ‘takes the cake’!

Revealed the 82 short films of the Maremetraggio 2019 section

The 20th edition of ShorTS International Film Festival will feature 20 Italian works chosen from countless shorts; culminating in the selection of 82 works from 30 different countries. They will feature in the historic Maremetraggio section of ShorTS IFF, scheduled from June 28th until July 6th in Trieste.

In this section, the best short films from all over the world will compete. In 2018, these shorts were granted awards from major international film festivals, such as the Palme d’Or at Cannes (All These Creatures) and the Oscar (The Silent Child).

Behind the camera in our 2019 edition there will be many Italian directors, who sign as many as 20 works amongst the selected shorts; taking on a diverse range of genres, from comedy to animation, up to the most innovative and experimental of shorts.

Amongst the competing Italian works, we have Pepitas by Alessandro Samapoli and Renata Ciaravino, starring Lino Guanciale, star of the well-loved fiction La porta rossa and Ariella Reggio, acclaimed Triestine actress, who plays the roles of granddaughter and grandmother.

We have dedicated a large space to animation, which will include the work Mercurio by Michele Bernardi, one of the most important Italian animators and cartoonists; author of important collaborations in the world of television, music and advertising.

The short Sugarlove by Laura Lucchetti uses the technique of stop-motion to tell the story of Gemma and Marcello, a couple struggling with wedding preparations. We also have Goodbye Marilyn by Maria di Razza, set in Venice in the Giornate degli Autori section, which depicts an extraordinary animated version of an interview with the iconic Marilyn Monroe.

We present many storylines that focus on the very young, who are often struggling with a world that does not accept nor understand them. This is seen in the short Quelle brutte cose by Loris Giuseppe Nese, presented in competition at the International Critics’ Week 2018. We also see this in F**ck Different by David Barbieri, which follows the struggles of Luca, a bourgeoisie boy, during a dull night at the disco. Director Paolo Strippoli on the other hand, opts for allegorical language in his short Nessun Dorma, in which inside a church, two young scout refugees are the only ones still awake in a sleeping world.

Competing we also have Milky Way by Valerio Rufo with Daphne Scoccia; acclaimed protagonist of ‘Fiore’ by Claudio Giovannesi, which was awarded the Premio Prospettiva at ShorTS IFF 2017.

Furthermore, topical subjects such as those dealt with in My Tyson by Claudio Casale make an appearance; telling the story of Alaoma Tyson, a young Italian boxing champion born to Nigerian parents in Rome. We also have the highly experimental and innovative short L’ombra della sposa by Alessandre Pescetta, which imagines the last moments of soldiers in the depths of the Mediterranean during the Second World War.

The 82 works will compete for the esteemed EstEnergy – Hera Group Prize of 5,000 Euros awarded by an international panel of judges; composed of Hrönn Marinósdóttir (director of the Reykjavik International Film Festival), Heinz Hermanns (director of Interfilm Berlin Short Film Festival), Alvaro Gago Diaz (Winner of Best Short Film Award in the last edition of ShorTS IFF) and Pippo Mezzapesa (director and author).

This year, we once again confirm the TriesteCaffè prize and the Oltre il muro award, given to the best Italian short by a panel of prisoners at the Trieste Penitentiary at the end of a 400-hour training course created by the Maremetraggio Association on behalf of EnAIP FVG.

“The presence of so many Italian films in the competition is certainly an important sign” – declares Francesco Ruzzier, curator of the Maremetraggio section – “because it serves as a testimony to the ever-growing movement with increasingly refined and acute awareness. As always, the film selection never begins with the themes approached or the political discourses addressed within, but from the attempt to identify an idea of personal cinema at the base of films; from this idea it’s impossible for a certain world vision to not emerge. In a period of crisis and transition like this, from both a human and environmental standpoint, certain issues are undertaken even by those who do not do so directly. What emerges most from the selection of the shorts is the condition of disorientation which human beings are experiencing; facing changes greater than themselves. There is a continuous attempt to decipher an increasingly chaotic and at times inscrutable reality, hence the desire to continually take refuge in human relationships, in the search for others, in understanding.”
