We understand ethnographic cinema in a broad sense; it refers to those productions
whose main aim is to show different aspects related to sociocultural realities as well as
a community’s way of life. It comprises films with the main focus on people, social
groups and relevant historical processes that are related to anthropology and
ethnography.

Duemila30 is entirely organized by a group of young students. It is meant to encourage the artistic and expressive form of the short film, giving visibility to young aspiring directors.

For this occasion three days of events - lectures - workshops will be organized, the full program will be published on the website and on the facebook page of the contest.

The chance to meet a host of international filmmakers, from newcomers to Oscar-winning professionals is, we believe, the best way to reward filmmakers for their work and talents. We aim at keeping the events intimate to allow the chance for various filmmakers and other industry personnel to be able to easily meet, network and discuss the screened films.

The National Film and Television Festival, the only Kermesse in Italy to combine the two macro-themes of communication, manages to connect, in a simple and direct way, but at the same time, criticism and analytics, themes and communication structures that accompany and sometimes affect the lives of everyone. Through stories, meetings, debates, screenings, shows, exhibitions and concerts, the greatest artists of the small and big screen are told captured by the emotion generated by the "climate" of magic that only the world of cinema and TV can give to a passionate audience of spectators.
