10. Mestre Film Fest
In the last Venice Film Festival edition, young filmmakers have been invited, boundaries between the different sections have been reduced, favouring the contaminations between western and eastern culture (see Ang Lee), the edition has confirmed how complicated it is to read the world only through the eye that cinema imposes to the world.
This year’s Mestre Film Festival will present short and young films coming from all over Europe, United States, Canada and Japan.
Four will be the awards: the Short Stories Award for the best international short film, awarded by the jury chaired by Claudio Bondì (and the Special award Dino Boscarato and the special award Lions Club Mestre); the award of the jury Video clips, chaired by Oliviero Toscani; and the award for the section Short&Web (see the website www.shortinvenice.net) and the award Unicef for short films dedicated to children.
Other events: «Mestre in the twentieth-century. Women’s stories» and «Short films from the world - Iran».
