Il giorno più corto dell'anno ( The Shortest Day of the Year )



Il giorno più corto dell'anno ( The Shortest Day of the Year )

As part of our annual appointment on the shortest day of the year, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Short Film Center present 5 shorts illustrating works from some of the best emerging talents of the Italian film scene.

Multiple subjects are touched in this year's selection, ranging from a woman's reproductive choice (Agata by Giacomo Boeri) to creative approaches to deal with the end of life (The Last Eulogy  by Gustav Baldassini), and covering important topics such as migration (Amira by Luca Lepone), women's central role as caregivers (A Traveling Girl by Davide Vigore), and - of course - an ironic take on food (Buffet by Santa de Santis and Alessandro D'Ambrosi)!

The Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio (Italian Short Film Center) was established in 2007 thanks to Gianni Volpi, who was president of Aiace Nazionale (Italian Association of Arthouses) at the time. The idea was to fill a void: to create a point of reference in the world for Italian shorts, by collecting films and at the same time promoting them both at home and abroad.

Since then, the Short Center has been operating as an agency for the Italian short, to ensure, amongst other things, an annual showcase of domestic productions at the leading event in the sector: the Marché du Film Court at the Festival of Clermont-Ferrand. The Short Center, thus acts as the main interface for numerous foreign players, from festivals to distribution.

In 2016, the Torino Short Film Market was set up. It is the major professional event in Italy in the area of shorts, realized by the Italian Short Film Center in conjunction with the National Cinema Museum and the Torino Film Festival.
