UNIMED Award at the Venice International Film Festival

The UNIMED Award, collateral prize of the Venice International Film Festival, results from the collaboration between la Biennale of Venice, the University of International Studies of Rome – UNINT and UNIMED. This annual award, launched in 2017, is assigned by a jury of international students coming from UNIMED associated universities to the competing movie that best reflects the value of cultural diversity, promotes freedom of artistic expression and cultural exchanges. It aims to encourage cultural exchanges among students and highlight the value of cultural diversity in art. The award was established in memory of Prof. Franco Rizzi, former Secretary General and founder of UNIMED, for his lifelong and career commitment to improve cooperation between Euro-Mediterranean universities.
