Mission / description New York, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Los Angeles, Istambul, Hong Kong. In the background of each great movie there is a city. Works of the most important Italian and international cineastes confirm it.
Urban Islands, an international short film contest in its fourth edition created by L’Isola del Cinema, invites participants to celebrate the unbreakable bond between cinema and metropolis.
The contest admits Italian and foreign short movies which tell stories about urban areas, their suggestions and contradictions, but also about narrative modalities that derive from them.
Urban Islands are places of the mind, metaphysical universes, flashes of brilliance in a reality which is sometimes anonymous
and gray. Starting from the concept of imaginary linked to the topic of the city, this project is an integral part of the international Festival L’Isola del Cinema® that proposes Rome as a big capital of cinema hosting other cities of the world.
