Marco Diotallevi, Federico Russo and Lele Panzeri are the members of the jury from the Art Directors Club and they will give the prestigious award to the Best Creative Idea.
RESET DOC AWARD
The Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations Award is addressed to the short film that stands out for conveying a message in the field of dialogue and intercultural comprehension among people through a deeper awareness of “different” cultures with the intention of opening some channels of mutual comprehension between “East” and “West”. These new ways of communication regard cultural, religious and political matters, on the basis of reciprocity and equal dignity opposing those trends of intransigence and intolerance of ethnic nationalism, racism, religious fanaticism and fundamentalism, that often become a source of violence, terrorism and conflicts.
The award will be given by Giancarlo Bosetti, Director of the Reset Dialogues on Civilizations Association.
JUNIOR KIDS AWARD AND JUNIOR TEENS AWARD
These awards will be given by the primary and secondary schools students of Capalbio’s areas.
