In its setting in piazza Verdi in Trieste, ShorTS International Film Festival has in recent years represented not just a summer event but one which narrates a city with a thousand faces using a medium which best illustrates it, film. Events of recent months have also demonstrated this festival’s capacity for starting afresh, returning in a new digital format. The tendency towards innovation, alongside the important local presence, underly the support AcegasApsAmga has for years brought to ShorTS. For the 2020 festival the multiutility is once again to award the AcegasApsAmga prize to the best Italian short film. Staff from the entire Hera Group had the possibility this year of applying to be jury members, a scheme which achieved considerable success also thanks to the new digital format of ShorTS. This therefore produced a diverse jury of around 40 members from many different areas, from Trieste to Udine, from the Veneto to Emilia Romagna, and Tuscany. This initiative is part of longstanding collaboration aimed at adding value to the city. AcegasApsAmga and ShorTS have in fact organised collateral projects for the event to involve residents of all ages, from the production of shorts with children and young people to the setting-up in 2019 of the AcegasApsAmga prize. This experience has proved once again the importance of cooperation and sharing, vital factors in a company such as AcegasApsAmga, with its deep-rooted links to the area, which aims at ongoing improvement to services, also thanks to the know-how shared with a major Group such as Hera.
