Besides that, the festival offers an educational program for the young directors and for interested high school students, to elaborate on the relationship between cinema and the Sustainable Development Goals, questioning the civil responsibility of an audiovisual message and the impact it can make.

Venezuela 2018, 12′
spagnolo con sottotitoli in Inglese / Spanish with English subtitles
The short film presents a utopian Venezuelan society, strongly criticizing what happened in Venezuela in recent years. Through the lightness of a comedy, the short film deals with issues of totalitarian regimes in a surreal way to underline the absurdity of limitations to personal liberties.
What if you can`t remember but you know you have been there? Through a personal reflection of the tragedy in the Mediterranean Sea, on the 6th of November 2017, witnessing, between dead and missing people, 50 migrant victims on board of the “Sea Watch”, the short film explores new ways of storytelling, a new language away from the mainstream media.
