As the Artistic Director of the Festival Matteo Cichero explains: “Filmspray, strongly supported by Guarducci, has evolved to give real visibility to Italian directors, who often do not have the right space and outside the festivals for their videos there is no real circuit. distributive. Filmspray wants to create a new way of conceiving videos, making them international, visible and appreciable all over the world thanks to the absence of a spoken language.”

Among the videos that arrived, the jury selected 25, based on the realization, the message and the idea.
