Vittorio Boarini Award

The second edition of the award named after the founder and long-time director of Cineteca di Bologna, Vittorio Boarini, a pioneer in the field of restoration, a scholar of contemporary cinema and art, an educator, critic and infectiously energetic disseminator of culture who passed away in 2021. The award is given to international figures who, like Vittorio, have distinguished themselves in the safeguarding and diffusion of cinema heritage.
This year it will go to Mohamed Challouf, filmmaker, founder of the association Ciné-Sud Patrimoine and director of the Cinéma au Musée de Sousse Festival, and to José Manuel Costa, director of Cinemateca Portuguesa.
