Introduction

The L'anello debole (Weakest link) prize is awarded at the Capodarco l'Altro festival, a contest with a lively and packed programme of events: film projections, documentaries, short films, Q&A’s with film directors and actors, and workshops. The setting is pictoresque, thanks to the Communità di Capodarco di Fermo’s stunning sea views, and the feast of wine and culinary delights awaiting. 
Writers and directors whose works make the final selection also participate in the event, which has become one of Italy’s hottest meeting points for all audio and video-makers with an interest in social issues and the environment. 
All audio and visual shorts will be projected and/or broadcast at the Festival, in a number of venues around the Fermo area, for the sole viewing purpose of the people'is jury and the general public.
