“The only true realist is the visionary” (Federico Fellini).
The Mostra del Cinema di Genova, co-founded by
Associazione Culturale 28 Dicembre and ACEC, is devoted to cinema
as an art form. We will privilege films with a poetic or
visionary value and innovative languages.
We will give equal importance to fiction and non fiction
works, to features and shorts, and the festival’s Grand Prix, dedicated to
Eadweard Muybridge (Grand Prix Pigeon Flying, Plate 755, 2500€) will be assigned
to the Best Film regardless of genre, duration and theme.
Ample attention will be given also to films out of competition, both in the
form of special screenings and retrospectives.
For further information about our aesthetical and ethical point of view,
please visit the MANIFESTO page on this web-site.
Information about submissions and the Grand Prix can be found in the RULES and AWARDS pages.
