The aim of the Festival SiciliAmbiente is to promote the auteur documentary cinema related to environmental issues, and to encourage contacts and exchanges of views and ideas between the directors.
This Festival is organized and sponsored by Demetra Produzioni SAS and the cultural association CANTIERE 7, with the support of the City of San Vito Lo Capo and several sponsors who share the same principles characterizing the Festival.
The Film Exhibition is articulated in different sections: the international film contest for documentaries on environmental subjects, an international review of cartoons selected by the CinemAmbiente Festival of Turin, and several tributes/retrospectives, seminars, panel discussions.
The Selection Committee will base its choices on the quality of texts and images and, more generally, on the use of a creative language indentifying an auteur documentary film.
Documentaries of any nationality and length are admitted to take part to the selection, provided that they were completed after the 1st of January. In case of selection, the format for the projection of the film may be: Betacam SP PAL, HDV, DVCAM, miniDV. Other formats must be approved by the Secretariat of the Festival. No rental fees will be paid for the contest section of the Festival. The works in languages other than Italian must be subtitled in Italian.
An international jury, composed by influent figures in Cinema and Culture will assign the following prizes:
* “Il Faro” (‘The Lighthouse’) Prize to the Best Documentary, with a € 2.000,00 grant.
* “Il Faro” Plate to the 2nd and to the 3rd Best Films.
* The Audience Award, chosen by the audience attending the Festival, with a € 1.000,00 grant or a prize of equivalent value offered by the sponsor.
The amounts of the awards in money will be paid within 6 months from the date of the assignment.
The filmmakers and/or the producers of the films selected will be notified by the 10th of June 2011. No notification will be provided for the excluded films. The selection, the programme and the projections schedule are at the sole discretion of the Direction.
