The Ristretto Awards

The San Diego Italian Film Festival’s Ristretto Award is dedicated to short narratives either by Italians or about Italian culture, Italian-American identity, or more broadly for the Italian community. 

Works may focus on Italian culture, either as fiction, documentary, or experimental movie, can be up to 30 minutes long, and with English subtitles if not in the English language. 

In 2019, the first year of the awards, SDIFF partnered with the Milano International Film Festival, the Napoli Film Festival, and Sicily’s Cibo Corto, with special participation from the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles.

In 2019, SDIFF received 61 submissions from 5 countries and named the following winners:

THE GOLDEN JURY RISTRETTO
Cà semu
by Luca Vullo 

THE SILVER JURY RISTRETTO

Vale la pena

THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR RISTRETTO SPECIAL AWARD
Il posto della felicità

Submissions are now open for the 2020 Ristretto Awards. Details and submissions: https://filmfreeway.com/SanDiegoItalianFilmFestival.
