‘We adopted a similar treatment for short films and feature films. We are very proud of this choice. This is an orientation that legitimizes all forms of film production and that honors the thousands of courts that arrived this year. Among the twenty-eight films that we selected, twenty-one are short: a number that is proportional to the arrivals and that deserved a certain recognition’, says artistic director Mauro Russo Rouge.
