Dear Professors and dear students of New York Video School,
"Con i minuti contati" will be back again this year with the third edition. The Festival - organized by cultural association "L'Arca delle Idee" - is scheduled for 30th august to 2nd september in Montefalco (PG, Umbria), Italy (the dates may vary).
"Con i minuti contati" is an International Short Film Festival founded in 2010.
Year after year, our Festival has increased its success and importance both in Italy and in the rest of the world. The origin of our efforts is the desire to give proper exposure to short films. According to our philosophy, filmmakers must not consider short films as a mere exercise in style, a demonstration of professionalism which is supposed to increase reputation in order to become a featured film director. Hence, making a short film is art, and it must be as importance and dignified as any other forms of artistic expression.
During the past two editions "Con i minuti contati" has brought in Montefalco hundreds of works from all over the world. The past edition has been a huge success both for the great quality of works and for the participation of many directors in competition. The Festival was a great success with the audience as well, who has appreciated the program of events we offered. Last year italian director Aureliano Amadei has opened the Festival.
Registrations are open! Deadline: 5th may 2012. Whether professional or amateur videomaker, everybody can entry his work(s). You will find the announcement of competition and the registration form at www.coniminuticontati.com
