Premio Cesare Zavattini


Cesare Zavattini Award 2023/24

The call to participate in the Premio Cesare Zavattini 2023/24 is online, promoted by the Fondazione Archivio audiovisivo del movimento operaio e democratico (Aamod), with the collaboration of Cinecittà-Istituto Luce and Home Movies – Archivio nazionale del cinema di famiglia.

The initiative allows young filmmakers, aged between 18 and 35, to submit a project for a short film involving the creative and original reuse of archival film documents. Among the projects submitted, a Jury composed of five important personalities of Italian cinema chooses nine finalists, whose authors will have the opportunity to participate in a Training and Development Workshop.

At the end, the same Jury selects three winning projects, which, in addition to the free use of the film material from the Aamod and partner archives, receive free support services for the realisation of the short films and the sum of 2,000 euros for each project realised.

Participation in the initiative is free of charge and the deadline for submitting projects is 30 July 2023.
