Cultural diversity is one of the most valuable results of human existence. It is an inexhaustible source of innovation and development. Intercultural dialogue largely contributes to the preservation and advancement of cultural diversity and the peaceful coexistence of peoples. Art, the most impressive manifestation of culture, has always furthered mutual understanding and respect across borders. For this reason the International Delphic Council has initiated the international contest for documentary short films called DELPHIC ART MOVIE AWARD.

Show the Power of Art – Develop the Intercultural Dialogue!

What makes art fascinating?

Which artistic achievements have coined the culture of a country in the last 10 years?

What do national identity and tradition mean to contemporary art?

How can enthusiasm for art be conveyed to an uninvolved audience?

Answers to these questions are expected from the contest contributions of the DELPHIC ART MOVIE AWARD 2011. 

The nominated films will be shown to the public at the ITB. The award ceremony will take place at the “Palais am Funkturm” during the final show of the ITB Berlin 2011 on March 13th.
