How Kinèo was born, its history

Born as a prize of Italian cinema, and voted by spectators to support the industry and cinemas, over the years it has broadened its horizons by opening up to international audiovision, favoring many encounters between artists from all over the world, also relying on the judgment of a jury of excellence.

And the following is what the president declares: Rosetta Sannelli

Since then, a lot has happened and changed in two decades. Italian cinema has raised its head and industry thanks also to the advent of platforms that have multiplied job opportunities, enjoying good health. Certainly the audiovisual world has undergone the Copernican revolution in almost all other economic sectors and in the life of each of us. And there will still be many changes and transformations due to an increasingly enlarged and global audiovisual market.

In this perspective, Kinèo considers it very important to support and enhance the young generations of Italian artists from any branch of cinema / audiovisual who will have to be up to the new future challenges.

Finally, with pride and dedication, Kinèo announces the recurring award for the best national or international producer to Martha De Laurentiis on this important 20-year anniversary of the Venice Film Festival. By stating verbatim words:
