JEAN MITRY AWARD

From its beginnings in 1982, the Giornate del Cinema Muto has been committed to supporting and encouraging the safeguard and restoration of our cinema patrimony. With the aim of encouraging work in this field, in 1986 the Province of Pordenone established an international prize, to be awarded annually to individuals or institutions distinguished for their contribution to the reclamation and appreciation of silent cinema. In 1989 the Award was named in memory of Jean Mitry, the Giornate’s first Honorary President.
