Venice International Film Festival: UNIMED Award 2017 for cultural diversity and freedom of artistic expression

During the 74th Venice International Film Festival, an international jury of University students will give the UNIMED Award 2017 to the film that best embodies the values of cultural diversity, promotes freedom of artistic expression and encourages cultural exchanges. The award ceremony will take place on the 8th of September at 2:30pm at the Sala Tropicana of the Hotel Excelsior.

This award was established by UNIMED in cooperation with “La Biennale di Venezia” as a collateral prize of the Venice International Film Festival. The award was created in memory of Prof. Franco Rizzi, former Secretary General and Founder of UNIMED, and his life-long commitment to Euro-Mediterranean university cooperation.
