Magma
Magma

Magma – mostra di cinema breve is an international short film festival which takes place in Acireale, a beautiful baroque town situated in the Eastern part of Sicily (Italy). Magma was first started in 2002 by Associazione Culturale Scarti, a cultural association created by a group of young people aiming at producing and promoting short films. Now in its 13th edition, Magma – mostra di cinema breve has so far examined more than 5.000 short films coming from 76 countries of the world, reaching a total attendance of around 14.000 spectators and standing out as one of the best short film festivals in Italy. In addition to the international competition, every year the programme offers special sections devoted to producers or distributors of the short film. In contrast to bigger Italian film festivals, Magma has always focused exclusively on the short film, considering it as a separate art form, as a format allowing for the experimentation of new styles and the creation of new trends, the presentation of works from both first-time amateurs and established filmmakers. The festival offers a chance of visibility for high-value works that are often precluded from the main distribution channels. Its aim is to build a bridge between the audience and the endless forms of expression of the short format, ranging from documentaries to animation, from narratives to the experimental.
