“Ciak in Lombardia”, the call promoted by the Regione Lombardia, awarding audiovisual and photographic projects aimed at making the territory’s locations known for cinema, television, and advertising, or at promoting, in an original and unusual perspective, already famous locations, is online. Projects can be forwarded until September 16th, 2019.

The budget for the call is € 80,000. The selected audiovisual projects will be awarded prizes from € 1,000 to € 15,000, while the photographic projects will be awarded prizes from € 500 to € 6,000. There will also be four official awards: the Lombardia Segreta Award, the Ermanno Olmi Award, the Montagna Award, and the Lago Award, to which economic contributions are recognized.

“Ciak in Lombardia” is an initiative destined to young people between 18 and 35 years old, who are students or graduates from art schools, fine arts academies, university courses and professional schools in the visual arts sector.

“Lombardy – says the Regional Assessor for Tourism, Territorial Marketing, and Fashion Lara Magoni – is an open-air film set, the ideal location for making films and shooting photos, chosen by many directors and photographers to make films and shots well-known throughout the world. And film tourism is giving excellent results in terms of visits, with many tourists coming to our cities after having admired them on the big screen.”
