THE FESTIVAL .
Universo Corto is an international short film festival that began in Pisa in 2004 and will have its XII edition in 2019.
It is an independent review of free theme short films organized by the cultural association Giovani Persone.
The Festival is aimed primarily at university and post-graduate students, or those enrolled in schools of cinema, but for some years it has also been open to directors from independent cinema. Since the first edition the presidency of the event has been permanently held by the director Roberto Faenza. The Festival’s artistic director is Riccardo Romboli.
The 2019 Jury Chairmanship is now held by LESLIE & ROBERT ZEMECKIS.
