There are 16 splendid finalists still in the running for a prize in this first edition of the Foiling Film Festival, the world film festival dedicated to films whose common thread is foiling.

The nominees compete in an “overall” classification for Best Film and in five category classifications as follows: short film (max 5min), editing, photography, screenplay, and series.

Over the past few months works have been coming in from all over the world to the Festival staff coordinated by its curator Beatrice Colombo Serri: “The idea of doing a Festival was born during a coffee with Luca Rizzotti (Founder and President FOILING WEEK), we were thinking of making a documentary on the history of foiling. Having previously worked for Banff and Ocean Film Festival the connection was virtually immediate and here we are in January looking for the best videos on flying water toys.

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 29, at the end of an invitation-only evening to be held at the Palazzo dei Capitani in Malcesine. On July 2, the program will be replicated for the public by the City of Malcesine.

From 7:30PM there will be light refreshments at Palazzo dei Capitani in Malcesine, followed by the screening of the films in competition. The Foiling Film Festival is the opening event of FOILING WEEK, the event is open to all event participants.
