The 17th edition of the Sedicicorto Forlì International Film Festival will be twice as special. Like many other festivals held in these months afflicted by the Covid-19, Internet will be the main host of the event. This year’s number of entries, 4.758 from 128 different countries, and the 220 selected shorts bear testimony of the festival’s reputation as one of the most important events for short movies in Europe. The rendez-vous is from 2nd to the 11th October on MyMovies.it. And good news for the people in the city who just do not want to miss this very eagerly awaited event: movie theatres will open as well.
This is how the 2020 Sedicicorto Forlì International Film Festival will take place: the international contests Movie, Animalab, Experia and the national ones CortItalia and Cortinloco will be available during the festival on MyMovies.it, and their schedule will follow the festival’s. In additions, you will find extra content on the website www.sedicicorto.it.
The San Luigi movie theater and Auditorium Intesa San Paolo will host the 3rd edition of IranFest, the festival dedicated to the Iranian culture and cinematography. The other live scheduled events will be: La notte di Cabiria (international short movies)for an homage to Federico Fellini’s 100th birthday, Cinematica (International short movies devoted to the theme of environmental protection) and Cinemix (“Light” shorts in length and content). The contests Animare, Bebisciort and NO+D2 are designed for the younger audience, from 2 to 17 years. These lists will be available to applicant schools and can be projected in their respective venues.
However, this will not be the only live event this year. On September 14th and 15th there will be a special preview: two nights with plenty of guests, cinema and entertainment for you to get familiar with the festival’s program. The chosen venue will be the summer arena of Musei di San Domenico, an illustrious location loved by the people in Forlì.
In any case, remember to write down in the agenda the main event, the XVII Sedicicorto Forlì International Film Festival, from October 2nd to October 10th. You can follow it on MyMovies.it, on the Sedicicorto website, in the San Luigi movie theater and in the Auditorium Intesa San Paolo.
