The Ca’ Foscari Short Film Festival is back for its 9th edition. The first European award entirely ideated, organized and managed by a University, will take place from March 20 to 23, 2019 at the Santa Margherita Auditorium in Venice.
The Festival's rich program, with 30 short films, special activities, workshops and masterclasses, will cover a wide array of topics, from Assassin’s Creed and animation to 3D movies and Asian cinema.
This year's Special Guest will be French director Patrice Leconte.
The 2019 edition will also see the partnership with M9 museum, where the shortlisted International films will be screened on April 11th and 12th.
As always, the “Short” remains loyal to its mission of being an initiative by young people and for young people, the real protagonists on both sides of the screen.
The 3.400 submissions have been narrowed down to 30 excellent short films that represent over 23 world countries from Brazil to India, from the USA to Malaysia and Italy. A common denominator unites most of the works in this International Contest: the exploration of immigration and emigration in all their aspects, both physical and psychological.
