Every year since 1999 ICFT / CICT has offered to UNICA a UNESCO
Fellini Medal to be awarded to a work witnessing to the values of
tolerance and peace fostered by UNESCO.
The ICFT / CICT International Prize, that was named the Delmiro de Caralt* Prize in 2008 when UNESCO celebrated the 50th anniversary of the ICFT, is awarded by the jury panel for the UNICA Film Competition in charge of evaluating some 120 to 140 films submitted by about 40 countries.
* Delmiro de Caralt (1901-1990), non-professional filmmaker from Catalonia, founder of the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya; also one of the founding fathers of UNICA in 1931. He has been the representative of the Spanish federation at UNICA; up to 1973 and created in 1972 the eponymous Foundation, that was later merged with the De Caralt Library (including the Film Library and Museum.)
Irina BOKOVA, Director-General of UNESCO
UNESCO likes film making and supports the UNICA Festival. The Prize awarded by the International Council for Film, Television and Audio-visual Communication is an encouragement for the promotion of Peace on large screens.
I am willing to foster any possibility of working together to develop cinema making as a medium to promote mutual understanding and progress.
I wish you all the best for the UNICA Festival that contributes so well for the development of film-making for the sake of Peace.
