"The AmiCorti International Film Festival is dedicated to exploring cinematic expression from around the world and helping young filmmakers appreciate the power of cinema. The festival premieres the works of new cinematic voices, pays homage to great films of past masters and hosts special events and workshops with film artists, such as writers, directors and actors. AmiCorti is the annual film competition, which this year includes six categories: feature films, short films, animation, documentaries, video clips and short films made by students from various schools. Located between the hills and mountains, the entire Unione Montana Alpi del Mare and the entire Cuneo area, in the heart of Europe, is transformed every summer in the month of June into the capital of international cinema, bringing the most innovative visions to the screen. There are five to nine days of stars, new talents, professionals and, above all, audiences of all ages, from students of first degree institutes to students of universities in Italy and abroad.

6 Section on the Festival:

Short Film: Movies record real or reconstructed events with sound images taken from the camera lens. A film, transparent and sensitive to light, runs inside the camera, onto the surface of which the light passing through the lens is projected. Thus the images of the subjects taken are formed, as if several photographs were taken. T

Features: it is the recording of an action, a story, a document, etc... taken by a video camera and recorded on a magnetic tape or on any other electronic - computer support which is currently the latest invention of the technique. Then the images will be recomposed by sending them to the TV or by projecting them onto a screen with a device called a video projector.
