57th TRENTO FILM FESTIVAL
21 April to 3 May, 2009
TRENTO. A few days ago the new board of directors of the TrentoFilmfestival that will head the event until 2011 nominated Egidio Bonapace as president and reconfirmed Maurizio Nichetti as artistic director and Augusto Golin as delegated director.
The 57th TrentoFilmfestival, the oldest and most acclaimed international festival of mountains, exploration and adventure films, scheduled in 2009 from 21 April to 3 May, is already projected.
The TrentoFilmfestival is again seeking feature films, documentaries, journalistic stories or shorts by film-makers able to portray the people and places of mountains and adventure in an original way.
The new regulations and entry form for the films are already available online on site www.trentofestival.it.
Among the innovations officially decided and inserted in the regulations, an Audience Prize for a film on ‘mountaineering’, besides the one for a feature film.
No variation, instead, in the official prizes of the TrentoFilmfestival:
The Gran Premio “Città di Trento” – Gold Gentian and 5000 Euro – for the best film of all, possessing high artistic qualities, that corresponds to the cultural aims pursued by the Festival.
The Italian Alpine Club Prize – Gold Gentian and 3000 Euro – for the best film on mountains and mountaineering.
The City of Bolzano Prize – Gold Gentian and 3000 Euro – for the best film on sport, exploration, or adventure.
The Silver Gentian and 1500 Euro – for the best short film.
The Silver Gentian and 1500 Euro – for the best television production.
The Silver Gentian and 1500 Euro – for the best artistic technical contribution.
The deadline for entering the films in the 57th TrentoFilmfestival is 31 January 2009 for films produced in 2007 or 2008; 28 February 2009 for films produced in 2009.
Also downloadable from the Internet site are the regulations and participation in “MontagnaLibri”, the 23rd International Review of Mountain Publications, the main world event dedicated to books on mountains, which is held alongside and, as always, opens a few days prior to the Filmfestival.
