Festival start: 01 November 2024      Festival end: 03 November 2024

The Anonima Sognatori association, CinemaLab and EdoHub promote and organize the First International Film Festival “Lavoro & Impresa” and the related Award. Sponsorships and partners will follow.
The intent is to explore, through filmic narration, the experience of humanity at work and, at the same time, present the experience of those who create that work by doing business, without neglecting how work and business influence the environment and its dynamics.
Only films that tell stories (not documentaries) that contain aspects of work, of working, and of those who work are admitted to the Festival; as well as those who are looking for work, those who lose it, those who don't have any. At the same time, films are allowed that tell the stories of those who create or have created, or have lost, a company and, overall, of how work, workers, and businesses are united in a single purpose and destiny.
In short, stories that tell these relevant and fundamental aspects of humanity, in all the psychological, social, political and environmental facets and implications they entail, are admitted and invited to participate.
A Festival and an Award dedicated to men and women who work every day all over the world building countries and destinies.

The awarded categories are as follows:

Grand Jury Prize for the best film ever.
Best Italian film.
Best foreign film.
Best direction.
Best photography.

The selection of films will be made by experts and operators from the world of work and companies, and by experts and operators in the audiovisual, university, journalism and art sectors, both at a local, national and international level.

The jury's minutes remain confidential and every decision taken by the jury is unquestionable and final.

The selected films, three for each category excluding the Audience Award, will be publicized in the press, internet and social media, and their authors will be notified personally by email.


During the three days of the Festival (1-3 November 2024) as many films as possible will be screened according to a schedule prepared by the Festival.
At each screening the audience will have a ballot to vote for their favorites, and these ballots and votes will lead to the Audience Award.

The screenings will take place in a cinema or in a suitable venue.

Depending on the availability of sponsorships and hospitality, collateral events could also be organised, such as a photography and painting exhibition on the same topics, and discussion panels and meetings with the authors.

Finally, on the evening of Sunday 3 November there will be the awards ceremony with the awarding of the prizes awarded by the jury.

The ceremony will be public and can be booked free of charge while places are available.

It is possible to broadcast the ceremony via web to allow those who cannot participate to witness it.


The authors declare that they have every right to the images and music of the films, and hereby consent, without having anything to claim, to the public screening of the films during the festival period. They also agree to the publication of clips transmitted via the Internet to promote the films and the Festival, as well as their names and photographs.

The authors of the films retain all rights to their works.


This competition falls within the cases of exclusion provided for by Presidential Decree 430/2001.

The organization declines all responsibility for any acts of plagiarism committed by the authors, cases which will therefore be resolved in venues and with means external to the Festival.


Participants accept the processing of their personal data pursuant to Legislative Decree 196/2003, GDPR and subsequent amendments and the Organizer undertakes, based on current privacy legislation, to use the participants' data exclusively for the purposes of the organization and management of the Festival and limited to the time it takes place, without sharing the data with third parties.

The complete Festival program will be made available on the official website before the event.
The Festival regulations may be subject to changes which, if necessary, will be promptly communicated to interested parties.

The Festival reserves the right not to award one or more of the prizes indicated.

The availability of hospitality for the winners depends on the sponsorships, but all authors, whether selected or not, can have discounts on hospitality as will be indicated by the Festival secretariat.

Providing false or misleading information in the entry, or otherwise failing to comply with the rules of the competition and the Festival, is subject to disqualification with all related consequences.

Unless otherwise indicated in this regulation, everything contained in it will be regulated and interpreted in accordance with Italian laws. The competent seat is the court of Treviso.

The opinions provided by the judges are based exclusively on their personal opinions and do not reflect the opinions of the Festival organization which therefore assumes no responsibility for the academic, creative, professional, economic or emotional impact on the authors or for the consequences of the opinions thus expressed.

By registering for the Festival, the author declares to have understood and to fully and totally accept these regulations without any conditions or reservations. The lack of even one of the conditions that regulate the validity of the registration determines the automatic exclusion from the Festival and the loss of the registration fee.
