Among the feature films, seven debut works, two documentaries, and ten Italian premières, from nine countries. Ten young authors, among which Anna Melikian, the Azerbaijan-born Russian filmmaker whose feature film Mermaid is an urban fable about the mermaid Alisa; two documentaries from the Czech Republic (Peace With Seals by Miloslav Novak, and Lost Holiday by Lucie Králová); the young Chinese filmmaker Weng Shou-ming (26), whose feature Fujian Blue describes human vices and follies of present-day China.

The 2008 Feature Film Award will be conferred by a jury including figures in Italian culture: writers and authors Filippo Timi and Silvia Ballestra, film editor Carlotta Cristiani, the filmmaker Alessandro Piva, and Manuel Agnelli, the frontman of the Italian band Afterhours.
