Corti a Ponte is an International Short Film Festival, characterized by an approach devoted to education in the art of cinema and the active involvement of audiences of all ages and social groups.

The screenings are accompanied by a series of competitions and collateral events such as a 48-hour race, a competition for soundtracks, live shows, workshops and meetings.
