I cortometraggi raccontano le biblioteche /Shorts on books and libraries
SHORTS ON BOOKS. Short films about libraries
A competition sponsored by the Italian Library Association (AIB) and International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions ( IFLA ) open, regardless of age or experience, to videomakers who have something to say about libraries.
Citizen Kane, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Name of the Rose, and Murder, she wrote are just a few of the many works through which cinema and television have presented libraries and librarians: people and places of various nationalities and traditions (including stereotypes and weird characters) viewed through the lens of the so-called “Seventh Art”.
We believe that in the Internet age the world of the book still has many stories to tell, including through the medium of short films.
When “The Hollywood Librarian” was realized, we decided to start this contest, probably the first (and unique) video competition dedicated to libraries and librarians.
The first edition was held in february 2009: more than 160 short films participated until now (May 2017)
Films can be entered in three sections (fiction, documentary, advertising) and in the category “Metropolitan Libraries” (international IFLA prize).
The contest is free of charge and open to all.
