UNIMED is glad to launch the 4th edition of the UNIMED Award, a collateral prize to the Venice International Film Festival to be assigned by a jury of international students coming from UNIMED associated universities.
Of course, this 4th edition will be subject to the evolution of the current Covid-19 epidemic and to what is laid down in the next government decrees. The organizers of the Festival will closely follow the evolution of the current Covid-19 epidemic and reserve the right to change the way it is carried out according to the government provisions that will follow. At the moment the event is confirmed without any change.
The 77th edition of the Venice International Film Festival will be held from September 2nd to 12th, 2020 and we invite you to involve students from your university to be part of this international jury.
The UNIMED Award is part of the collaboration between UNIMED and la Biennale di Venezia, which is a significant recognition for our association. Indeed, la Biennale is one of the most important international contemporary art exhibitions and, in particular, the Venice Film Festival which take place within the exhibition, is one of the most prestigious international film festivals worldwide.
The UNIMED award will concur with other already-established awards and the jury will have one week to evaluate the movies and award the prize to the winner, according to the film’s sensitivity on the issues of cultural diversity and integration.
Further information on the selection of the jury and the role of its members can be found in the UNIMED Award 2020_Call for participants
