First edition 2021 of International Cilento Film Festival.
The Cilento film association wants with the ICFF award to promote and spread the knowledge of all forms of expression related to cinema (films, television series, animation, documentaries, meetings, exhibitions and book presentations) throughout the year, and also make known a quality cinema that deals with issues related to Cilento and social issues.
The ICFF Selection includes a maximum of 20 films per category with the aim of offering quality and excellence in cinematographic expressions concerning Cilento and social issues by creating the right mix between first works or works by emerging authors and directors and major productions ; between genre productions and independent cinema; between the spectacular vocation of animation and documentaries and the works of established authors respecting tradition and innovation. In addition to the films in the Official Selection, there will be previews of films out of competition, special events, meetings, masterclasses, retrospectives, reissues of classics and exhibitions where the public can find interaction and interactivity. The Audience Award is foreseen only and exclusively for the films admitted to the competition.
The public by registering on an online server will be able to view all the selected works and will be able to assign a vote that will allow the Prize Direction to select the film that will win the audience prize. The Artistic Director can propose to the President and the Board of Directors the assignment of the Acting Award, Career Awards and any other prizes. The producers and distributors of the films presented undertake to place a sign with the mention of the award received and the ICFF Award logo before the theatrical release of the award-winning film.
All Italian and international films (films, television series, animation, documentaries and video clips) that were produced from January 01 2020 to November 30 2021 will be admitted to the final preselection.
To be admitted to the pre-selection by and no later than Wednesday 1 December 2021 it is necessary:
