Concorto Film Festival is an international contest dedicated to short-movies.

Every year it’s taking place in the wonderful contest of Parco Raggio, the garden of  Villa Raggio (Pontenure), a few kilometres away from Piacenza.

Concorto Film Festival has started in 2002 and over the years it has become the Italian reference point in the short-movies’s world. Every year the short-movies are selected in advance and during the days of the Festival, they are presented with the extraordinary presence of their authors.

According to their show, there is a professional jury which has to select the winner, giving to him or to her the first award: “The golden donkey”( symbol of the Festival).

Concorto is the international event happening during the end of the summer in Piacenza’s district. Thanks to it, the cinema is becoming the main character of the cultural scene of the city.

During every edition some of the well known international short-movies, already awareded, are shown to the public.

Through the years Concorto has menaged to build its strong identity and its specific international point of view.

Usually it’s an event well structured through different main topics. They are presented and discussed with opened cinematographic minds and foreign filmographic’s eyes.

Since 2009, it’s offered to the public a special section, parallel to the main contest. Actually, this special section is focused on a specific Country, with the aim to understand and discover new and different perspective, mainly linked to the cultural and political context.

During the evenings of the Festival, some interesting musical events are happening, like live sessions or DJ-sets.
