Comment from the Vice-President and Advisor for Culture and Sport of the Autonomous Region of Friuli – Venezia Giulia, Av. Mario Anzel:
The 24th edition of the “Shorts International Film Festival” confirms once again the validity of a project that is always able to draw the attention of enthusiasts and spectators to various topics of cultural and social importance, while rewarding the creativity and professionalism of young directors in the world of short films. The festival, with its many sections, stimulates reflections and tries to translate ideas, dreams and visions into images. Now a historic event for the city of Trieste, but with an eye on the future and new technologies, it leads audiences and competitors from all over the world to some of the most important cultural venues in the city, thus promoting our territory internationally. My applause is therefore directed at both the organizers and those who will be able to seize and appreciate the many opportunities for growth, openness and reflection that the festival can offer.
