UNIMED Award at the Venice Biennale 2017

UNIMED is glad to announce that a collaboration with la Biennale di Venezia has been launched. Biennale is one of the most important international contemporary art exhibitions, and in particular with the Venice Film Festival, one of the most prestigious international film festivals worldwide.

The UNIMED award, recently established, will be awarded in the first week of September, during the Venice Film Festival, by a mixed jury composed of selected international students stemming from all cultural backgrounds and thus representing the diversity of the UNIMED member Universities.

This is an international competition where a total of 18 films will be vying for the prize. The UNIMED award will concur with the other already-established awards and the jury will have one week to evaluate the movies and award the prize to the winner.

The winning film will be the one that most stands for the UNIMED values and the issues of cultural diversity and integration.
