Jury 2022 - The Magnificent
Film Editor, Italy. Giogiò Franchini was born in Napoli (July, 11, 1959). He worked with Paolo Sorrentino, Jonathan Demme, Valeria Golino, Antonio Capuano, Andrea Molaioli, Alessandro Baricco, Ascanio Celestini, Fausto Paravidino, Antonietta De Lillo, Daniele Ciprì, Pappi Corsicato, Sergio Rubini, Roberta Torre, Domenico Procacci and many others. In 1995 he brought film post-production to Naples: “Racconti di Vittoria” was the first film edited in Campania with a digital system (AVID Film Composer). In 1996 he introduced the AVID system to the Nuovo Cinefonico di Cinecittá: “Pianese Nunzio fourteen years old in May” was the first film edited in Cinecittá’s historic studios without the use of a traditional moviola. During this period he also dedicated himself to teaching editing through lessons, internships, and seminars; his instruction was a benefit to, among others, la Fondazione Toscanini, the Sapienza University in Rome, the Suor Orsola Benincasa and the Federico II University in Naples, the University of Parma, the Multimediale Scrittura e Immagine Institute of Pescara, the Documentary School Città della Scienza—Istituto Luce, the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, the Holden School in Turin, the Gian Maria Volontè School and the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome.
Director and Programmer of Le Cri du Court and of the Best Of International Short Films Festival, La Ciotat. Brice has been in deep with films for as long as he can remember. At one point, after barely graduating from High School ("Sorry I didn't hand over my essay today, I saw a movie that sucked my interest last night" he told his teacher once) and while in the middle of failing his studies in History in college for about the same reason (plus some heavy partying of course), he got to be involved with the wrong crowd : the movie making type. After being a night watchman looking after production cars and empty festival tents, making coffee and sandwiches, trying to find something meaningful and cool to do with his life, he got entangled in the short film festival business for the better part of his life (20 years). Short of being a career oriented guy, ceaseless love and dedication to films and film makers is, up to this day, one of his most defining features.

I am 17 years old, I live in Lyon, France, and my mother is Russian. I have always dreamed of becoming a filmmaker. Next year, I am going to study at Concordia University in Montreal to realise my dream. I have already made some short films with friends to dive into the world of cinema. (screenplay, acting, sets, editing..) That is why I am extremely happy to participate in your festival!
I am 22 years old, I live in Brussels and I am finishing the HELB film school in the editing section. Film and music are my two great passions, I feel at home with them. I love escaping and escaping reality with these art forms. I search the Internet or books for the secrets of filming, the different points of view of directors or even the world of animation. I would like to start studying 3D from September to learn more about this vast world that fascinates me.
I am 17 years old and live in Quarto in the province of Naples. I am a student at the Institute Alfonso Casanova in Naples, I will soon begin the fifth year of my studies in Cultural Services and of the performing arts. I am a very sunny, shy and enterprising girl, I like to have new experiences and above all broaden my horizons.
I have always been fascinated by cinema and it has served me as catharsis, it has allowed me to put words and images to my emotions, to find answers to certain feelings that bubble up within me, in many ways it saves my life. Thanks to cinema, my psyche has been built, my vision of humanity, taking inspiration from the great authors who have marked its history.
I was born on 2 March 2000 in Quéretaro, Mexico. I study architecture at the ULB in Brussels. I love Art and Cinema very much. The theme of escape inspires me and I am eager and curious to discover the visions of filmmakers on this theme of freedom that inhabits each of us.
Hello, my name is Gabriele, I am born in 2004 and I am from Naples. I attend Peppe Mastrocinque's film university and my dream is to act.

I am 19 years old and it is difficult to introduce yourself in a few words when you love so much. So I will simply say these words: live, theatre, claim, passionate, write, meet...
To describe myself I would say that I am a 24-year-old man (still a bit of a boy), sensitive, a bit shy and critical, but who likes to explore topics and live with many feelings.
I am twenty-three years old and originally from Nocera Superiore in the province of Salerno. For the past five years I have lived in Bologna, a city that nourishes and welcomes me on a daily basis. I admire the wonder of art, that sense of missing that spurs me to seek and search for something that completes my being in the world. The visual, for me, is a continuous search for meaning.
Jury Il Camino
A Neapolitan jury, made up of residents of the Il Camino psychotherapeutic center (https://www.comunitailcamino.org/) participates in the viewing of the films in Competition and awards one or two prizes that they themselves create in the Community and assign to the best film.
In the introspective journey that the residents undertake during their therapy, a wealth of thought and criticism is formed that offers us an original point of view on the films presented and, often, allows us viewers to uproot ourselves from social determinisms and preconceived ideas.
