We are proud to present the forth edition of the “PIETRASANTA Film Festival”. The festival dedicated to short films is hosted in Pietrasanta.

In 1877 the poet Giosué Carducci praised this municipality now known, internationally, for its arts and crafts, such as the prestigious laboratories of marble, the famous foundries, numerous art galleries. With their work and with their presence, the artists, alongside the studios hosting authoritative masters from around the world, have made this town an open air museum. For such reasons, Mondo Cinema chose the beautiful city of Pietrasanta the ideal venue for their international film festival of short films, which aims to give visibility to authors that are little known to the general public, in a artistic and cultural environment known and appreciated worldwide.

• “Città di Pietrasanta” Award will be assigned by the technical panel to the best work ever. The prize value is $ 1.000 (one thousand dollars, or the same amount in euro).
• "Amore per il suono" Studio Sound Award:  a post-production work (for an estimated value of 3.500 €) for a future short film at Studio Sound’s recording studio in Rome.
• “Mondo Cinema” Award, awarded by Mondo Cinema.
• “Settima arte” Award, awarded by the technical panel.
• “Popular Jury” Award, awarded by the popular jury.
• Any special mentions will be awarded by the technical panel.

For the 2018 edition, valuable artworks (like sculptures, plates and such) will be the awards.
