The Foundation Ugo and Olga Levi Onlus, in collaboration with the Ca’ Foscari Short Film Festival has established the fifth edition of the “Olga Brunner Levi” Award. The prize is dedicated to the best video clip realized by high school students from all over the world. The competitors have to realize a video on women’s musical performances or on the relationship between women and music in history. The winner will be awarded with a prize and the video clip will be presented at the Ca’ Foscari Short Film Festival on March 24th, 2018.
The award is named after Olga Brunner Levi
, who, together with her husband Ugo Levi
, gave life to an association for scholars, musicians and researchers of musicology at the Giustinian Lolin Palace
in Venice. In 1962 the association became the Ugo and Olga Levi Foundation
, thanks to a donation that Ugo had made to honour his wife’s will. Nowadays the Foundation, presided by Davide Croff
and directed by Giorgio Busetto
, maintains the original imprint in promoting concerts and musicological research; moreover, it owns and manages a specialized library and guestrooms for musicians and researchers, it organizes concerts, expositions, conferences and courses.
