Magma's aim is to favour the promotion and the diffusion of short film, by showing to a wide audience an excellent selection of works coming from all around the world.
In addition to the international competition, the programme offers special sections devoted to international partner festivals, producers or distributors of short film.
In contrast to bigger Italian film festivals, Magma has always focused on the short film, considering it as a separate art form, as a format allowing the experimentation of new styles and the creation of new trends, the presentation of works from both first-time amateurs and established directors.
The festival offers a chance of visibility for high-value works that are often precluded from the main distribution channels. Its aim is to build a bridge between the audience and the endless forms of expression of the short format, ranging from documentaries to animation, from narratives to the experimental.
Magma – mostra di cinema breve has so far examined over 6.000 short films coming from 79 countries of the world, reaching a total attendance of about 14.000 festival goers and standing out as one of the best short film festivals in Italy.
Born in a little theatre in 2002, Magma has grown to become the most important short film festival in Sicily.
This year it celebrates its 15th edition.
The Jury of Magma will award the best short film of the Festival with the Lorenzo Vecchio Prize, which is devoted to the creator and artistic director of Magma, who died prematurely.
The Jury may also give other special mentions.
The public will vote and give a special prize to its favourite short film.
