ShorTS seeks young selecters!

ShorTS International Film Festival seeks young selecters for the section dedicated to children and teens

 

The film event, to take place in Trieste and online
from 2 to 10 July 2021, is to bring back for the 22nd Festival the section Shorter Kids’n’Teens,
dedicated to the very young.

A section dedicated to international short films
that is an actual “festival within the Festival”,designed for
children from 6 to 10 years old and teenagers from 11 to 15 years old.

For the 2021 Festival registration is open for participation also as selecter in this section dedicated to the very young.
Applications are to remain open until 19 February and
are intended for children aged 8-10 and teens aged 11-14.

 

Big little cinema for big little jurors: it’s called Shorter Kids’n’Teens and it’s the section dedicated to the very young of ShorTS International Film Festival, the historic Trieste film event organised by Associazione Maremetraggio and scheduled to be held in the city from 2 to 10 July 2021.

A real “festival within the Festival”, the Shorter Kids’n’Teens section aims to introduce the seventh art and the world of shorts to a young audience through a section designed especially for children and teens as part of the historic event in Trieste.

And if, year after year, the best films of Shorter Kids’n’Teens are announced thanks to votes from children and teens, the 2021 Festival introduces a special new feature that sees the audience of young film fans play an even more important part.

The selection of the short films competing in the Shorter Kids’n’Teens section, in fact, will be curated by them, through a fun and training experience, the only one of its kind in Italy. The Festival will open selections in order to create a group of Selecters (composed of a total of eight children aged between 8 and 10 years and eight teens aged between 11 and 14 years) who want to find out all the secrets that make a short film a special film, able to entertain but also to excite and make the audience think.

In March and April the Selecters will take part in a series of meetings in Trieste, where they will play an active part in selection. The first three meetings (with physical attendance, compatibly with the pandemic situation) will be dedicated to audio-visual and cinematographic literacy and will continue in April with another three meetings in which the Selecters will choose from among shorts from all over the world those that are to become part of the Shorter Kids’n’Teens section.

The Selecters are to watch, comment and judge the films, working as a team under the guidance of an experienced professional from the world of education and cinema who will help them choose the shorts that will then make up the official selection of Shorter Kids’n’Teens.

There is time until 19 February to become part of the group of young Selecters: in order to submit their application, the aspiring young Selecters will have to fill in a simple online questionnaire, necessary for collecting personal details and finding out the candidates’ film tastes and Internet consumption habits. Further information is available on the Festival’s official website www.maremetraggio.com

Thriller, sciencefiction and crime: The Manetti Bros. are guests at ShorTS

Thriller, sciencefiction and crime: The Manetti Bros. are guests at ShorTS International Film Festival 2018

 A homage to the Marco and Antiono Manetti’s cinema was announced at a press conference this morning.

 The two directors are taking part in the Trieste-based festival, scheduled from June 29th to July 7th. There will be screenings of their greatest works, from their first features to the multi-award winning “Ammore e Malavita”

Friday 22nd June, Trieste – During this morning’s press conference for the 19th edition of the ShorTS International Film Festival, scheduled from June 29th to July 7th in Trieste, the organisation announced a homage to the filmography of the Manetti Brothers.

The 2018 edition of the Triestine festival will play host to, amongst others, the two Roman directors, who will take a lead role at the event where here will be screenings of their greatest works, from their first features to the multi-award winning Ammore e Malavita.

 Marco and Antonio Manetti, known as the Manetti Bros., began their cinematic career in the 1990s, establishing themselves from the autset as being true genre cinema enthusiasts. The directing duo have also made numerous successful music videos, including for Er Piotta, Alex Britti and Tiromancino, and ended up attracting wider public attention thanks to the much lauded TV series L’ispettore Coliandro.

 In between has been a career studded with many successes, indicated by an eclectic and original filmography, in the name of the best of Italian cinema. The ShorTS International intends to explore and celebrate this extraordinary journey by means of a selection of screenings of their greatest films

The homage to the Manetti’s will begin on Monday 2nd July at 21.30 at Cinema Ariston, with a screening of Song ’e Napule, a stunning reinterpretation of the Italian crime film Alessandro Roja and Giampaolo Morelli are the protagonists, and it won 7 Nastri d’Argento awards and 6 David di Donatello awards.

Tuesday 3rd July we return to Cinema Ariston at 19:30 for a screening of Piano 17, the Manettis’ second feature. Here they have made a frenetically paced black comedy set in a lift, enriched by Giampaolo Morelli’s perforamnce, Massimo Ghini participation and a cameo from Valerio Mastandrea.

At 19.30 on Wednesday 4th July at the ShorTS HUB in Piazza della Borsa an encounter with the Manetti Bros. will take place, moderated by film crtitic and general delegate of the Venice International Film Critics’ Week, Giona A. Nazzaro. Then, at 21.30, the film L’arrivo di Wang will be shown at Cinema Ariston. It’s a sciencefiction tale imbued with black humour with Ennio Fantastichini and Francesca Cuttica.

The homage will finish on Thursday 5th July at 22.00 at Cinema Ariston with a screening of Ammore e Malavita in the presence of the two directors. The evening will be led by the journalist Maurizio di Rienzo and Beatrice Fiorentino, curator of the Nuove Impronte section. A victor at the David di Donatello awards, as winner of the Ciak d’oro and the Golden Globe for Best Comedy of the year, the Manetti Bros. most recent film is an overwhelming musical, as well as a new declaration of love for Naples from the directors.

Matteo Rovere e Sharon Caroccia awarded at ShorTS IFF

 The director of “Veloce come il vento” and the young protagonist of “Il cratere” will be rewarded at the Trieste-based festival, scheduled from June 29th to July 7th.

 Matteo Rovere will receive the Cinema of the Present Prize, whilst Sharon Caroccia will be awarded the Prospect Prize, acknowledgements that confirm and highlight two extraordinary talents of Italian cinema.

 Borth artists will be present in Trieste on Friday 6th July to receive the prizes.

ShorTS International Film Festival, scheduled in Trieste from June 29th to July 7th, announces the prizes for the 2018 edition.

Matteo Rovere, director of the acclaimed Veloce come il vento and producer of the Smetto quando voglio saga, will receive the Cinema of the Present Prize. This acknowledgement confirms and highlights the extraordinary artistic and professional rise of the Roman auteur, who had a film in competition at ShorTS in 2008 with the short Homo homini lupus and in 2009 with his debut feature Un gioco da ragazze. Moreover, in the 2016 edition, actress Matilda De Angelis received the Prospect Prize for her role in Veloce come il vento.

 Sharon Caroccia, the talented Campanian fifteen year old and protagonist of Silvia Luzi and Luca Bellino’s film Il cratere, as well as a contestant on the Rai 1 talent show Sanremo Young, is the winner of the Prospect Prize at ShorTS 2018: an acknowledgement that represents a true wager on the future of the talented youngsters the festival identifies each year. Indeed, through the Prostpect Prize, ShorTS again this year shines the spotlight on a promising youngster of Italian cinema, showing an intuition which, over time, the careers of the prize-winning artists have gone on to prove right. In fact, some of the artists who have had the honour to win this award over the course of the festival’s various editions include: Alba Rohrwacher, Luca Marinelli, Michele Riondino, and Matilda De Angelis.

 One of the proud motivations behind our festival is our having known how to identify emerging talents in the panoramic universe of Italian Cinema over the years’, says Chiara Valenti Omero, director of ShorTS. ‘Matteo Rovere is certainly amongst those who, more than anyone else, know how to make the most of their abilities, not only when it comes to directing, but also managing to cover all areas of cinema making. He has ultimately, through necessity but also through passion and the propensity to help when faced with independent cinema, become a producer of reference for Italian cinema. For this reason we can’t possibly award this prize to anyone other than him – a man who has, over the years, known how to make the most out of a talent he demonstrated from an early age,’ she concludes.

 Matteo Rovere and Sharon Caroccia will be present at the Triestine event on the evening of Friday 6th July to receieve the prizes. During the concluding evening of ShorTS 2018, Saturday 7th July at 20:00, the film “Il cratere” will be screened at Cinema Ariston in the presence of the directors and the young actress.

ShorTS International Film Festival is staged with the contributions of:  Mibact (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism) – Cinema Directorate; Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia – Council Member for Culture, Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia – Council Member for Production and Tourism; CRTrieste Foundation; K.

The Nuove Impronte section returns to the ShorTS IFF

The Trieste based festival, scheduled from June 29th to July 7th, announces the section dedicated to the finest works from the rising stars of Italian cinema.

Along with documentaries, noir, horror and melodrama will take the lead in Nuove Impronte 2018, which this year will once again select 7 Italian directors who, although not yet well established, have already earned themselves a reputation for being talented and courageous.

Also scheduled are the out-of-contest screenings of Sergio Stivaletti’s Rabbia Furiosa, a film inspired by the crimes of Pietro De Negri (known as the “Canaro della Magliana”), which will be presented by the director, and of Roberta Torre’s Shakespeare-flavoured musical Riccardo va all’inferno, which will be screened in the presence of theatre director and actress Sonia Bergamasco.

Amongst the jury members will be director Sydney Sibilia, known for her Smetto quando voglio (I Can Quit Whenever I Want) trilogy, director Giovanna Taviani and producer Marco Alessi.

These directors may not yet be well established, but they clearly already distinguish themselves with their courage, talent and precise handiwork. This is the inspiration behind Nuove Impronte, a traditional section of the ShorTS International Film Festival, scheduled from June 29th to July 7th in Trieste.

It is a competitive section that, once again in 2018, will choose the best works from the rising stars of Italian cinema. There are 7 works in competition, brought together by their status as genre cinema: a selection in which noir, crime, horror and melodrama find themselves side by side with finely crafted documentaries.

By bringing together the seven titles that make up Nuove Impronte’, explains journalist and critic Beatrice Fiorentino, the section curator, ‘we wanted to exude a clear signal: suggesting a concrete possibility that genre cinema is being reborn in the Italian cinema industry. If the recovery of genre cinema is one of the most considerable points of interest this season and documentary confirms its status as one of the most free and creative areas of our industry, we at ShorTS International Film Festival have decided to concentrate all our energy on these two aspects. This reaffirms the festival’s purpose as being one of exploration, discovery and discussion about modern cinema and its new expressive qualities”, she concludes.

The meetings and special events at the 2018 ShorTS International Film Festival also all focus on the same areas, giving life to a programme which moves towards the (re)discovery of a cinematic tradition from the past, pointing itself squarely towards the future.

There will also be out-of-contest screenings of Sergio Stivaletti’s Rabbia furiosa, a film inspired by the crimes of Pietro De Negri (known as the “Canaro della Magliana”), which will be presented by the director, and of Roberta Torre’s musical Shakespearian tragedy Riccardo va all’inferno, which will be screened as the festival’s closing film in the presence of theatre director and actress Sonia Bergamasco.

Amongst the jury members for the Nuove Impronte section will be director, screenwriter and producer Sydney Sibilia, known for her Smetto quando voglio (I Can Quit Whenever I Want) trilogy, director Giovanna Taviani, maker of the documentaries Ritorni and Fughe e approdi, and producer Marco Alessi, founder of Dugong Films.

 

THE FILMS IN COMPETITION FOR THE 2018 NUOVE IMPRONTE SECTION

La terra dell’abbastanza (2018) by Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo – The D’Innocenzo brothers’ debut film is a sad tale set in the suburbs of Rome. It touches on such subjects as criminal education and destiny, and was presented at Berlin in the Panorama section.

The End – L’inferno fuori (2018) by Daniele Misichia – Produced by the Manetti brothers, Daniele Misichia’s cinematic debut is an apocalyptic zombie movie set against the backdrop of a simultaneously enraged and indifferent Rome, with Alessandro Roja as the protagonist. The film can be viewed in Italian cinemas as of 14th August 2018 thanks to 01 Distribution.

Veleno (2017) by Diego Olivares – Diego Olivares, in his second fiction feature after I cinghiali di Portici, has made a civil drama set in the Terra dei Fuochi (an area in Campania). Starring a superb Luisa Ranieri who is like a present day Anna Magnani, alongside Massimiliano Gallo and Salvatore Esposito.

Gatta cenerntola (2017) by Alessandro Rak, Ivan Cappiello Marino Guarnieri and Dario Sansone – Alessandro Rak, having already made the multi-award-winning L’arte della felicità, unites the forces of Ivan Cappiello, Marino Guarnieri and Dario Sansone to give life to a one of the fables from Basile’s Pentamerone. The result is a superb animated noir, which adapts the famous tale with a contemporary, dark and gangster tone.

Città giardino (2018) by Marco Piccarreda – A documentary that aims to capture the immobility of tragedy by showing the reality of life in an immigration centre. Six unaccompanied minors spend extremely long and slow days imagining a utopian space of freedom.

Happy Winter (2017) by Giovanni Totaro – Totaro uses the documentary format to show a summer in Mondello, near Palermo. The heaving beaches, trying to be summery for many holidaying families, mirror the contradictions of a post-crisis Italian society.

The First Shot (2017) by Federico Francioni and Cheng Yan – Award-winning in 2017 at the Mostra del Nuovo Cinema di Pesaro, Francioni and Yan’s documentary is a journey in search of identity in the new China, vividly representing the sense of disorientation harboured by the generations born after Tienanmen.

 

The films in competition will compete for the Crédit Agricole FriulAdria Prize for best film, the IL PICCOLO Public Prize, the Critic’s Prize chosen by the SNCCI, the Best Production Prize awarded by the AGICI, and the ANAC Prize for best screenplay.

The new image of ShorTS IFF 2018!

Stories that upset the rules!

Come to the special world of short films! Those stories so small, but full of ideas and inventions that can upset the rules. The apple, an icon of the discovery of Newtonian gravity, subverts the rules and becomes a center of gravity itself! It crystallizes the moment floating in the air without falling on the hand. Prepare to watch and admire all the changing facets of the human inventiveness known and not!

80 films to compete in the Maremetraggio section

 

The Trieste-based festival confirms the shortlist for its annual section dedicated to award-winning shorts from other major international festivals.

The 2018 vintage will see 80 works from more than 30 different countries competing for the main prize. This year’s selection includes a plethora of shorts from female directors, many sporting stories, social themes and unforgettable portraits of femininity.

 On July 5th and 6th, the ShorTS Pitching Training workshop will teach pitching techniques seen with increasing regularity in the audio-visual sector.   

 80 shorts from more than 30 different countries competing against one-another: this is the Maremetraggio section. The historic competitive section of the ShorTS International Film Festival will run from June 29th to July 7th in Trieste. The section will see the best shorts from all over the world compete – shorts that have already won prizes at major international festivals in 2017. The 80 chosen films will compete for the prestigious EstEnergy – Hera Comm Prize of 5,000 euros, as awarded by a select jury that includes, amongst others, the actress and director Veronica Pivetti. “The shorts in competition are brought together by a very particular care and attention to the visual aspect of cinema, in addition to the fact that they have all won awards at the world’s major film festivals” – states Francesco Ruzzier, the Maremetraggio section’s curator – “We would also say that this year’s selection truly embraces femininity. Indeed, twice as many female directors have been selected this year compared to 2017, which is an extremely positive sign for the film industry”. Many sporting stories, social themes and unforgettable portraits of femininity will be on show, whilst the genres range from animation to documentary, from fiction to experimental works. Also competing is Audiophile, the multi-award-winning short by Emanuele Biasiol, a Trieste native who currently resides in the UK.

Aside from the main competition, there will be a screening of Dear Basketball, a work by the great Disney animator Glen Keane, which tells the story of Kobe Bryant’s moving farewell to Basketball, and which won the Oscar© for Best Animated Short in 2018. Also returning is the Studio Universal prize, thanks to the collaboration between the Maremetraggio Association and Studio Universal, who will obtain the rights to broadcast the best Italian short from amongst those selected on television. Further returners for the 2018 edition of ShorTS are the TriesteCaffè Public Prize, the AMC Prize for best Italian editing and the Premiere Film Prize for the best short without distribution. 

On July 5th and 6th, we propose an event of a slightly different kind. ShorTS Pitching Training, a workshop organised by the Maremetraggio Association in collaboration with Nisi Masa and the Audio-Visual Fund of Friuli Venezia Giulia, will be held in Trieste at the Mediateca La Cappella Underground. The workshop is available to a maximum of 15 participants, who may come from anywhere in Europe with particular attention paid to Cinema Schools, and who must have already conceived an idea around which to base a short. Registration for the workshop is free, but the selected participants will have to pay an enrolment fee of 50 euros. Wim Vanacker, manager of Nisi Masa’s Script Department, will hold the lessons in English; at the end of the training, the participants will pitch their ideas in front of a shortlist of selected producers, also in English.

 

ShorTS International Film Festival is staged with the contributions of:  Mibact (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism) – Cinema Directorate; Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia – Council Member for Culture, Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia – Council Member for Production and Tourism; CRTrieste Foundation; K.

Città visibile project

 

CITTÀ VISIBILE is a participatory video project, conceived by the Maremetraggio Association and financed by Siae SIllumina, within three suburban areas of the city of Trieste, which offers three different workshop paths conducted by under 35 artists and aimed at young people living in conditions of social marginality within the neighborhoods.

Under the guidance of three artists under 35 (supported by three participatory video tutors) the workshops will involve young people in the realization of a participated video (aimed at the production of three short documentaries or docufiction) that will involve the inhabitants of the neighborhood, in particular seniors. The starting point of the project is in fact the collection of archival materials, such as family videos and videos, photographs and objects from the past, as tools to stimulate the elderly to talk about themselves, look in the drawers and remember. In this first phase of exploration and research, the participants will collect themes, testimonies, and fragments of stories in order to restore the identity of the territory in which they live, in a collective self-narration of the places and shared spaces of the neighborhood. In the writing phase, through the participatory video technique, the young participants will be encouraged to reflect on their perception of identity as active citizens, on their sense of belonging to the neighborhood community, and finally, on how much this belonging has influenced, positively and not, their path of life.

The project will be developed through three phases, lasting five days each, over a total of six months. The first phase will be dedicated to the collection of archival materials, to conception and writing. The second workshop phase will be dedicated to shooting. The third phase, to the editing and finalization of the films.

The aim of the project is to start a creative exchange between the younger generation and the older generation living in the suburbs of the city of Trieste, thanks to a path of research and study aimed at telling the territory with the unseen gaze of those who live it, every day, precisely through the dialogue between generations.

The three audiovisual products will then be presented to the citizens in the context of a public event organized ad hoc by the Maremetraggio Association in collaboration with the Azienda Sanitaria, the Municipality and the Ater.
