ENNESIMO FILM FESTIVAL - OFFICIAL SELECTION

The following prizes will be awarded:

- the Ennesimo Critics’ Choice Prize will be awarded to the best short film of the Ennesimo Official Selection by a panel of judges from the world of cinema, communication and education. The panel will work independently from the festival organization and in compliance with its rules. The artistic directors, if necessary and upon request from the members of each panel, can be consulted for advice regarding merely technical and procedural matters. Anyone who has taken part in the production or in the selection of the works cannot be a member of the panel.

- the Ennesimo People’s Choice Prize will be awarded to the best short film of the Ennesimo Official Selection by the audience attending on the nights of the competition.

- the Ennesimo Artemisia Prize will be awarded to the best short film of the Ennesimo Official Selection by a panel made up of the members of Circolo Culturale Artemisia (issues related to the female world).
- the Ennesimo Best Performance Prize will be awarded to the best acting performance among the short films competing in the Ennesimo Official Selection.
- the Ennesimo Youth Prize will be awarded to the best short film of the Ennesimo Youth Selection by a panel made up of the students involved in the project “Non è l’Ennesima giornata di scuola” (“This is not going to be Just-One-More day of school”).
- The Ennesimo Comix Prize will be awarded to the funniest short film of the Ennesimo Youth Selection by a panel made up of students involved in the project “Non è l’Ennesima giornata di scuola” (“This is not going to be Yet-Another day of school”).
- the Caesar Design Film Award will be awarded to the best short of the selection of the same name devoted to design and architecture, and especially to the impact that these two creative fields have on humankind and on the planet. In the next few months, the topic of the 2023 edition will be announced.
- the Family Affairs Prize (“Premio Città di Fiorano”) will be awarded to the best short of the selection of the same name, dedicated to films that focus on the relationship between parents and children and on the various concepts of family, to collectively reflect on what has happened since the beginning of the pandemic. In fact, people have been either in close contact, or far away from the people of their family for a very long time: whether it was the family of origin or a “chosen” one, a family that was desired or a family that will exist in the future.
- the Offside (“Fuorifuoco”) Prize will be awarded to the best short film of the selection of the same name, composed of short films dedicated to the game of football (also known as soccer). The winning short film will be chosen by a jury of athletes belonging to local football associations.
The selected films will also be eligible for the following mentions (which grant no prize money):
- the Wannabe Designers Mention will be assigned to a short film among the ones presented in the CDFA section, by a jury composed of university students from faculties and schools of architecture, design, graphics and arts.
- the Mention "Non è l’Ennesimo festivalfilosofia" will be awarded to the best short of the selection Non è l’Ennesimo FestivalFilosofia whose topic will be word. The theme word refers to the central role of speech, language and dialogue in a society that, despite the overwhelming presence of communication, seems to make it weaker than ever. The mention will be announced within the programming of festivalfilosofia (September 2023).
