Also this year we present the Music Video International Competition, a competition reserved to music videos made by students from universities and film schools all over the world.
Our goal is to celebrate the community of directors who dedicate their art to music. A jury of professionals appointed by curator Giovanni Bedeschi will present a selection of the finalist videos that will be presented on the big screen at the Ca ‘Foscari Short Film Festival, making the vision – usually individual and enjoyed on the small screen – a collective experience.
