ShorTS IFF: Time has come

A festival dedicated to all those who would like to get a few pebbles out of their shoes.

How many of us have had the urge to act without reacting?

This year ShorTS IFF celebrates spontaneous and sincere people.
For all those who are instinctive, genuine, outspoken, reckless, determined, pure of heart and why not, even a little crazy, this is the festival for you.
For anyone who feels like they are on the verge of a nervous breakdown: watch a short film and let it pass.

Premio Prospettiva 2022 award goes to Aurora Giovinazzo

Aurora Giovinazzo, who made her cinema debut in Gabriele Mainetti’s film
Freaks Out (2021), to receive the Premio Prospettiva 2022 award at the ShorTS International Film Festival.

The young actress will receive the Premio Prospettiva award, a recognition that the Festival has been dedicating for 13 years to emerging talents of Italian cinema, during the 23rd edition which will be held in Trieste from 1 to 9 July 2022.

Since its inception, the Premio Prospettiva of the ShorTS International Film Festival has specifically staked on the future of the young talents discovered by the Trieste event each year. Through this award, ShorTS will once again in 2022 turn the spotlight on a promising newcomer to Italian cinema. A gamble which, over time, has been vindicated by the careers of the various recipients of this award from the Festival, including Alba Rohrwacher, Luca Marinelli, Michele Riondino, Matilda De Angelis, Daphne Scoccia, Sharon Caroccia, Francesco Di Napoli, Giulio Pranno and Luka Zunic.
