The CNC, National Center Short Film, with the support of Aiace Nazionale and the National Cinema Museum, will be present at the 35th Festival and at the 28th Marché International du Court Métrage of Clermont-Ferrand, running Feb 1-9, with an exhibition space entitled The Italian Short Film Corner. The exhibition, which confirms Italian presence in the event for the 6th year, has, as in previous editions, the purpose of representing, presenting and promoting domestic production of short films. The stand is set up with the support of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and the Piedmont Region, in collaboration with relevant organizations working in the field of cinema and, specifically, short films: Concorto Film Festival, Ozu Film Festival, and Sedicicorto International Film Festival. For the year 2013, jury members are: Alfio Bastiancich (President of Asifa), Daniele Gaglianone (director) and Gianni Volpi (critic and film historian). Together, they selected “M come Maria” as the Italian candidate for the competition, the short was written and directed by Anna Gigante, and produced by Panoramic Film.



The Festival International du Court Métrage de Clermont-Ferrand is the most important event of the global industry and one of the biggest European festivals. The similar Marché du Film Court reported in 2012 the presence of 3,000 accredited professionals, 34 exhibiting countries, 247 organizations in the sector, 73 television buyers, 76 distributors, 464 festival representatives. The CNC-National Center for Short Film, sponsored by the Italian Association of Friends of Art house Cinemas (AIACE), and the National Museum of Cinema, was established in 2007, with the support of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and the Piedmont Region as a point of reference in the industry nationwide. Among its tasks, there is the digitization and archiving of historical works and new productions, the promotion and distribution in the Italian and foreign markets of this heritage, with both traditional and new methods. As part of its development and promotion activities, the CNC is the representative of Italian competitors for Euro Connection, a business forum organized as part of the Festival of Clermont Ferrand and the Marché du Film Court which promotes partnership betweens European production companies, financiers and broadcasters in the film
