December 21st is the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and so the day in which short films are celebrated worldwide. The first edition was organized by the Centre National de la Cinématographie et de l'Image Animée in France in 2011. It has rapidly spread throughout Europe and today takes place in 50 countries around the world.

The Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio (the Italian Short Film Center) proposes a program of recent Italian shorts of various genres and on different formats. The goal is to provide the general public with an overview of where young Italian filmmakers are heading and what the trends of tomorrow will be.

The following shorts will be presented this year:

  • "L'attesa del maggio" by Simone Massi, 2014, 8'
  • "La salita" by Francesca Barison, 2015, 11'
  • "Eternit" by Giovanni Aloi, 2015, 14'
  • "Lo so che mi senti" by Francesca Mazzoleni, 2015, 16'
  • "Mamma mia," by Milena Tipaldo e Francesca Marinelli, 2013, 7'
  • "Ménage à trois" by Emanuele Daga, 2015, 13'
