50h in Barca – competition for film crews

The second edition of 50h on a Boat is here!

Given the success of the 2023 edition, the Contest by Sayonara Film 50H IN BARCA returns for a second edition.
During the weekend of 25 and 26 May registered crews will participate in the full production of a short film of a maximum duration of 10 minutes within the Barca district, within the time frame of 50 hours: this includes the conception, writing, filming, editing and post-production of the work. There will also be a moment to give back to the public and to* participants in the competition the works realised in a final evening to be held at the Barca train, on Saturday 8 June, with the screening in an open-air cinema of the finalist short films selected by a jury of experts* in the field, followed by the awarding of prizes and special mentions to the troupes and works.

To register your crew for 50h on the Boat, a contact person must fill in this online application form by 12 May, following acknowledgement of the following regulation.


Once again this year, numerous prizes will be up for grabs: a €1,000 Adcom voucher for the best film; a €500 Adcom voucher for the best director; a €500 Adcom voucher for the best photography; a prize for the best editing of a report at KoreLab; a prize for the best original subject of a report at Combo; a prize for the best interpretation of the Barca community; a distribution prize by Sayonara Film; and a screening prize by the Festival Visioni Italiane. A cash prize worth €500 will also be awarded to the work which, in the public’s opinion, best succeeds in conveying the spirit of the Barca, thus representing the place and the neighbourhood community in an authentically original manner.
