Associazione Amicizia Sardegna Palestina is pleased to present Al Ard [doc] Film Festival —a competition that supports filmmakers who shine a light on the Palestinian issue and the Arab World through their documentary work.
This sixteenth edition only documentaries are going to be selected in the standard section, both feature-length films and short films, and will compete for 5 different awards.
However, this year a new section dedicated to young Palestinians filmmakers from refugees camps has been added: the Echo of The Camp section! A new section means also a new award (making them 6 in just one edition)!
N.B.: films running for the Echo of the Camp Award can be both documentaries and fiction but they must be short (max 15 minutes).
Here are all the XVI edition Awards and Prices:
- Al Ard Award (best documentary of the Festival, assigned by the jury), euro 1000;
- Palestine Award (best documentary about Palestine, assigned by the jury), euro 1000;
- Emerging Director Award (assigned by the jury), euro 1000;
- Audience Award; (assigned by the audience), euro 500;
- Sardegna Palestina Award (assigned by the Selection Board), euro 500;
- Echo of the Camp (assigned by the Selection Board), euro 500. (NEW!)
