The 16th Integrazione Film Festival is now open for registration. It aims to be “an international competition for short drama and documentary films which show how people from different cultural backgrounds have successfully integrated.” This year’s festival was online but next year it will take place face-to-face in Bergamo and Sarnico, from May 10th to 14th 2022.
Even so there will still be an online version allowing the public to follow the event and watch selected films on demand. Several new features were announced this year: two new screening rooms in Bergamo – the Lo Screen and the Spalenga – and several new events such as meetings, workshops, and exhibitions. The awards on offer will include: Best Short Drama (€1,000), Best Documentary (€1,000), Best Film produced by a school or a class (€250) and finally the Audience Award, chosen by the public present during the screenings. The juries also reserve the right to award special mentions during the event.
