The Cultural Association CinemìCinemà, based in Arezzo (Tuscany, Italy), has been running an International Short Film Festival for Italian and international film-makers since 2009. The festival was originally created to encourage the use of the English language and videos for educational purposes for Italian high schools and it has evolved throughout the years opening its audience to international video-makers without loosing its main aim: promoting cinema amongst the youngest generations, and not only, with a particular attention to inter-cultural dialogue. The kermesse honors Mario Maldesi, a great Italian dubbing director; it partners with international and Italian short film festivals like Edinburgh Short Film Festival.
Cinemicinemà International Short Film Festival is organized by CinemìCinemà Cultural Association.
