Festival 2019


The Cultural Association CinemìCinemà, based in Arezzo (Tuscany, Italy), has been running an International Short Film Festival for Italian and international film-makers since 2009. The festival was originally created to encourage the use of the English lan-guage and videos for educational purposes for Italian high schools and it has evolved throughout the years opening its audience to international video-makers without loosing its main aim: promoting cinema amongst the youngest generations, and not only, with a particular attention to inter-cultural dialogue. The kermesse honors Mario Maldesi, a great Italian dubbing director; it partners with international and Italian short film festivals like Edinburgh Short Film Festival and Festival Quindici19 (Roma, Italy).

The 10th edition of Cinemìcinemà International Short Film Festival will take place in Arezzo from 11th to 13th April 2019; finalist films will be shown on 11th and 12th April and the Festival Closing Ceremony will be held on 13th April 2019.
