Project Description

JURY of COMPETITION 9+

A child is not a vase to be filled but a fire to be lit.
(François Rabelais)

The students of Jury 9+ will see and vote manily short films. Subjects to investigate are potentially infinite: relationships with peers, the way different cultures face a such complex period, rites of passage establishing the coming into adulthood. How to grow up in today’s world and how directors succeed in analysing future generations? Through their votes, the students are the ones who will be choosing and assigning the award to the Best Film among the ones presented in the category 6+ of the International Competition.

Films selected by the Visioni Fantastiche’s Artistic Direction for this jury of students will be communicated here on this website starting from September 10 2019.

Films selected for these students try to show common difficulties faced in this peculiar moment in life, using the language of fantastic cinema. Common realities interfacing at different cultural and social levels show how young people deal with the same problems, have the same interests and the same feelings. Potential subjects faced in this section are therefore infinite. Relationships with peers, the way different cultures address such a complex period, rites of passage establishing the coming into adulthood, various interests nutured from youngsters. How to grow up in today’s world and how directors succeed in analysing future generations? Our objective is to show the side, sometimes comic and sometimes dramatic, of individual growth, kwowing from the beginning that there are no univocal answers.

Variable depending on requests, but in any case no more than 270 people.

The jurors will assign the competition awards using the decimal system and voting through voting cards. All the jurors will have the chance to meet the directors of selected films and ask them questions. Jurors will participate in all screenings and film debates, attend premieres addressed to them and have access to meetings with authors and Festival guests.

They will be participating in the activities connected to the International Competitions in the morning into hourly time windows to be defined.

Yes, during the morning and the afternoon there will be Laboratories (max 30 students) and Master Classes, with proposals for every age group. The Festival program also includes encounters, previews and special sections open to all the public.
