Since its first edition in 1979, the Efebo d’Oro Prize has been exploring connections, differences and sometimes conflicts between the cinema and literature.
The two languages are different. However, they have been deeply intertwined ever since the cinema was invented.
The prize has given us an opportunity to screen a wealth of various works, invite and award film directors, writers, actors, producers and people who are actively creative in both forms of art and at the same time they look also into their hidden interrelations and relentlessly open up to every new approach or form of expression.
A beautiful photo was taken during the Efebo d’Oro event in 1995 of a pensive Michelangelo Antonioni sitting alone in a theatre and immersed in his own thoughts. We like to think that those were inspiring moments for him, as it happens to us who make the Efebo d’Oro possible every year with the hundreds of works of cinema, literature, television, and video art that we have the privilege of viewing. This makes us stay open to catch the suggestions that this world in turmoil is constantly sending us.
