About



Since 2002, Concorto Association managed and promoted the festival together with other cultural initiatives such as film education, cinema and photography workshops in high schools. From its first edition, Concorto has seen submissions increase from 72 to over 3.500, and the call for submissions is now open to short films from all over the world. Concorto’s identity evolved over the years, the festival grew international and more and more committed to research and to select the best short films around the world.

Every year, at the end of August, the festival is held in a beautiful open-air park arena, where the audience can meet authors, and a professional jury (critics, directors, photographers, actors) awards the first prize (Asino d’Oro) to the winner of the main competition.

Concorto is also part of the Italian team at the world most prestigious short films meeting (Clermont-Ferrand) and has tied partnerships with a number of international festivals (Internationales Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg, Interfilm Berlin, Short Waves Poznan).

Concorto had the honour to host in its main competition the work of many directors such as Denis Villeneuve, Werner Herzog, Pippo Delbono, Ben Rivers, Ruben Ostlund, James Franco, Ariane Labed, Chloe Sevigny, Laura Bispuri, Antonio Piazza, and Fabio Grassadonia. Notable members of past juries include Daniele Ciprì, Maya Vitkova, Teho Teardo, photographers Jacopo Benassi, Monika Bulaj and Tano D’Amico, and film critic Neil Young.
