The MATTADOR Award was for the first time at the Liceo Artistico Enrico e Umberto Nordio of Trieste to present to the students the Competition Announcement 2017/2018.
MATTADOR is aimed at high school students, with an introductory presentation by Giulio Kirchmayr, tutor and coordinator of the CORTO86 project, accompanied by a video and explanatory images on the activities of the Cultural Association. An in-depth study of the Award and its sections followed with a special focus on DOLLY "Illustrare il cinema", the section dedicated to stories told through images.
The International Award for Screenplay Mattador is dedicated to Matteo Caenazzo, a young student of the Nordic Art School of Trieste, who died prematurely in June 2009. The Award, born from the thought and passions of Matthew, aims to bring out and enhance new talents from 16 to 30 years. The initiative has a peculiarity that distinguishes it from all the others in the sector, offering selected young people the opportunity to develop their projects together with professional tutors, forming future screenwriters, directors and concept designers.
Participation is completely free, the works must be sent by April 15, 2018. The award ceremony of the 9th MATTADOR Competition will take place on Tuesday 17 July 2018 in Venice in the Sale Apollinee of La Fenice Theater.
