2017 CELEBRATION OF SEA-SET CINEMA FILMS FIRST “MAURO MANCINI” PRIZE COMPETITION SPECIFICATIONS PREAMBLE

The purpose of the prize is to investigate in more depth, through cinema, the multi-faceted relationship between man and sea; travelling, adventure, sailing, and knowledge. The sea is a place where cultures and civilisations meet: an element of nature, where the biological balance is a key to life: it is both a natural and an economic resource. Mauro Mancini, journalist and sailor, particularly cared about this.
