The Esseoesse Cultural Association announces the competition "CortoDino - International Film Festival Dino De Laurentiis -X Edition". The Metropolitan city of Naples, the Giorgio De Chirico Secondary School of Art and Communication, the other secondary schools of Torre Annunziata and the Vesuvian area, the main cultural associations and the of the Vesuvian and Campanian area will collaborate in the event.

The competition came about from the desire to remember and celebrate, in his hometown and in terms not only commemorative, but proactive, the figure and the work of Dino De Laurentiis. The main objective of the initiative is therefore to create an opportunity for meeting, debate and awareness of young filmmakers who enter the cinema landscape, in which the influence left by the illustrious Torrese has certainly been significant, while at the same time promoting cinematographic culture through the inclusion of disadvantaged people and the research and promotion of works by talents from Campania, and also national and international.

The presence of the world of associations and that of the school is the clearest sign of the purpose of connecting in particular with the world of young people.

The organization will nominate a Selection Committee that will have the task of choosing the works to be submitted to the judgment of the Public Jury, formed by the spectators at the screenings, and of the Artistic Jury. The latter, made up of experts in the sector, having evaluated the voting indications of the Public Jury, will proclaim, at its sole discretion, the winners among the works selected in the various categories.

The prizes, consisting of hand decorated lava stone, will be awarded to the winners of the following categories:

- Best Italian Short Film;
- Best International Short Film;
- Best Short Film “Over”;
- Best Short Film “Talento Campano”;
- Best Short Film School;

- Best Animated Short Film

The "Talento Campano" prize is reserved to the author, born in Campania, of the best classified film.

Prizes will be awarded only with the presence of at least 3 works in competition.
