Spaesamenti - Meetings about Border Documentaries is a project that promotes documentary cinema and the theme of the frontier, understood not only as a historical and geographical limit but also as a social, cultural, linguistic and ethical boundary, to reflect on the contemporary. It is a festival that promotes a dissemination of cinematographic works and a training course that offers the opportunity to gain experience in the organization of cultural activities, film analysis and critical writing. The public realization of Spaesamenti Festival is expected for the month of April 2021 which will take place digitally (online).


Award for the best short film awarded by a jury of experts (authors, cultural operators, teachers, critics): € 500,00.

Special prize awarded by the students' editorial staff: € 300.00.

The prizes are to be considered at the discretion of the juries.

Registration for the competition implies acceptance of the regulation in all its parts, the authorization for public viewing for which the author will not receive fees or rights of any kind and for any reason, and the accuracy of all the information requested.

The selection of the films is carried out by the project staff who may make use of the participation of some members of the editorial staff participating in the training course.

Spaesamenti does not provide a "fee" for screening costs and the registration of the film in the competition implies the acceptance that the screenings will not be paid.
