introduced this year: “Experimental”, “Italian Showcase” and “Insane”.
Annunziato Gentiluomo, director of the online journal ArtInMovimento Magazine,
which has followed the festival since its inception, will decide, in discussions with its
editorial staff, the film to which the ArtInMovimento Special Mention will be awarded.
“Three balanced Juries, full of different professionalisms and skills that will certainly be
able to analyze the films in competition this year. I thank them in advance for their
precious work which will ultimately decide the winners of this ninth edition. That said,
already being in the official selection is a great success. The game of prizes, which is
absolutely subjective, must in no way affect the moods of the authors”, says the artistic
director Mauro Russo Rouge.
