2nd Prize CID Video Competition: Class 5B

CID Video CompetitionCID’s first video competition is now over, and the judges have reviewed all the videos. As a reminder, the instructions were to answer the question “What does intercultural dialogue look like?” in 90-120 seconds, on video.

Class 5B

Second prize goes to Class 5B, the final year at the School of Arts “Aldo Passoni,” Turin (Italy). Students have 3 main fields of study: Graphic and Editorial Book Design, Industrial Design, and Textile and Fashion Design. Judges praised this video for creativity and originality, as well as for complexity and professionalism, said it was beautifully shot, and particularly mentioned both the music and the use of color.

Title: What does intercultural dialogue look like? It’s InterCOLORal Dialogue!

Description: Given that we are a multicultural and multilingual Institute, we decided to develop our video focusing on different words in different languages, and as we are a School of Arts we paired each word with a specific color. Indeed, works of art are a whole made up of different colors and brushstrokes, and this is how we understand intercultural dialogue: the participation and the contribution of each of us to a common project, that of mutual understanding. Within such a perspective, we view intercultural dialogue in the widest sense of a dialogue across all types of cultures linked not only to nationality or ethnicity, but also as a dynamic able to challenge all stereotypes regarding gender, sexual orientation, etc.

There were first, second and third place winners, as well as 3 videos that merited awards of excellence. Each of these is being highlighted in a separate post, as they warrant our attention. My thanks to the judges of the competition, professionals who made time to review student videos. Thanks also to all the competitors, who took the time to really think about the question of how to show intercultural dialogue visually.
