Premio Crédit Agricole Friuladria

From 2008, the Collegium Papers are eligible for the annual Premio Crédit Agricole FriulAdria. The prize, of 500 euros, will go to the paper adjudged the best of its year, and is awarded by the Crédit Agricole FriulAdria. This historical partner of the Giornate del Cinema Muto has a long-standing engagement with the training and development of young cinema talents, alike in the field of criticism, screen-writing and film-making. With this new prize it recognises the aim of the Collegium to stimulate the interest of new generations in the history and heritage of silent cinema, and to involve them in the distinctive scientific community which has developed in Pordenone thanks to the work of the Giornate.

The 2018 award recipient is:
Collegium Paper: Le Giornate del Cinema Muto and the encounter with Indian silent cinema
