COMPETITIVE SECTIONS

5. PERSO AWARD COMPETITION FOR BEST MEDIUM AND FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY FILM

Eligible for the selection process are documentaries of any nationality and language, with no less than 30 minutes running time, concluded after January 1st 2018 or that had never been publicly screened before this date. Only in exceptional cases, the Festival Direction, at its own discretion, may decide to derogate from this deadline for those documentary films that have never been publicly screened out of their country of origin.
All films must maintain the Italian Premiere status, which means they must not have been publicly screened in Italy before the scheduled screening day at PerSo Film Festival 2019 (This pertains to any event and/or platform available: festivals, screenings, any kind of television program, Internet, etc.).
The selection will give priority to World, International and European Premiers.
Whether a regularly submitted film should lose the eligibility requirements (hereby stated) in the period of time between the submission date and the beginning of the festival, the subscription will be voided and the film excluded from the competition.

a) PerSo Award
€ 7.000 to the best medium and feature length film

6. CINEMA ITALIANO COMPETITION FOR THE BEST ITALIAN DOCUMENTARY FILM
Eligible for the selection process are Italian Documentaries with no less than 30 minutes running time, concluded after January 1st 2018 or that had never been publicly shown before this date. Only in exceptional cases the Festival Direction, at its own discretion, may decide to derogate from this deadline for those documentary films that have never been publicly shown. In order to be an “Italian Documentary”, it must have been produced by Italian directors or directors that have been residing in Italy during the documentary film making and/or produced or co-produced in Italy.

Eligible for the selection process are short documentaries of any nationality and language, with a less than 30 minutes running time, concluded after January 1st 2018 or that had never been publicly shown before this date. Only in exceptional cases the Festival Direction, at its own discretion, may decide to derogate from this deadline for those documentary films that have never been publicly shown out of their country of origin.

€ 1.000 To the best short documentary film

8. “UMBRIA IN CELLULOIDE” COMPETITION
Eligible for the selection process are any length documentaries concluded after 1st September 2017. These documentaries must focus on social issues in a broader sense (as explained in the Introduction, point 1) and must be somehow related to the Umbria Region: about Umbria itself and/or set in Umbria and/or from authors either born or residing in Umbria.
Since this peculiar category is related to a very restricted production/setting field, the Festival Direction decided to open this Award to the “Social Cinema”, with the additional objective of encouraging the Umbrian Cinema. The “Social Cinema” is to be intended in its widest sense, including, besides the Cinema of the Real, also the Fictional Cinema and the Cinema of Animation on social issues.
AWARDS
a) PerSo “Umbria in celluloide”:
€ 1.000 to the best film
