The Southern Center of Environmental Education (Cmea) in Sorrento presents the third edition of the international short film competition: On-Air Festival, Video Contest for students and young filmakers about environmental education.
The Cmea celebrates 40 years of work on the teaching of the environmental audiovisual and it is no coincidence that the event takes place in Sorrento, because Sorrento is the venue since 1963 of the International Film Meetings, event attended by the greatest artists in the history of world cinema such as Sofia Loren and Vittorio de Sica.
On-Air Festival is a festival-laboratory open to experimentation, new technologies and the mixture of different artistic forms, which wants to give visibility to creativity expressed through the cinematographic language and promote a civic culture that meets the new requirements of man-environment compatibility.
The finalists will be notified by e-mail to the address indicated in the registration form. The awarding of prizes is bound to the participation of the authors (or their delegates) at the festival.
To the three finalists of the Schools and Filmaker sections, and to the winner of the Web Jury Prize will be awarded a certificate of merit and an holiday for three days and three nights in Sorrento, with half board treatment, guided tours and excursions, to a teacher and four students, and will be awarded the same treatment, but total for two people, to each of the three finalist filmmakers.
The technical jury reserves the right to assign special prizes to particularly deserving works. The winners of the Vertical movie award and the special prizes (Creativity, Editing, Photography) will be awarded a certificate of merit and stay for one night with breakfast treatment on March 29, 2019.
The winners of each section will also be awarded the trophy "On Air Cmea".
