CINE Golden Eagle Competition

Launched in 1957 with the mission of selecting American films for international film festivals, the semi-annual CINE Golden Eagle Competion honors the best in film, television and digital media. From its earliest days, CINE utilized (and still utilizes) a jury system to choose the best among the many films submitted, honoring them with the CINE Golden Eagle Award; the peer recognition of excellence that a prestigious CINE Golden Eagle confers still opens doors.  In the more than half century since its first competition, CINE alumni whose films have made the world laugh, cry, think, argue and change, include Ken Burns, Mel Brooks, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Stanley Nelson, Mira Nair, Robert Zemeckis, Jim Henson, Pixar Animation Studios, Quincy Jones and Mike Nichols - and that's just a partial list.

Some things stand the test of time, and CINE's knack for picking winners is one of them. The opportunity for emerging filmmakers to join this prestigious group continues. Recently, several of the winning films in our student division have gone on to win gold or silver medals at the Student Academy Awards, have shown their films at major festivals, and are working in the industry at places such as Walt Disney Animation Studios. 

The competition has kept pace with the industry, with new divisions and categories to provide opportunities for a variety of media producers. The CINE Golden Eagle Competition includes divisions for student and independent filmmakers in all genres; TV documentaries, fiction, reality and news; advertising; children's programming; industrials; and digital programming.

Do you think your production has what it takes to win a CINE Golden Eagle Award? Show us what you've got!

Reggio Film Festival

Hundreds of short film from all the continents, famous guests, meeting to study in deep interesting matters related to the short film or to the theme of that edition, big audience.

These are the elements of the Reggio Film Festival, a winning formula that is renewed year after year, an important appointment for Reggio Emilia but well known even out of our region borders.

The main target of this festival is to inspire interest and appreciation for the operas of filmmakers that send their short film from every part of the world, and at the same time to create occasions for cultural investigations that develop the cinematographic learning and the theme of the year.

So starting from the 1rst edition the Reggio Film Festival is distinguished every year by the choice of a theme, a topic that is examined and developed using different languages, so not only by the point of view of the short films but also through music, plays, words and other artistic expressions.
