The 2nd edition of the Golden Graal – Students Choice Awards will take place in Rome on June 7th at the historical Ambra Jovinelli  theatre.

Students of the main Italian and European schools of cinema and theatre give the prestigious awards to those artists who have been able to create a new way of approaching theatre cinema and music.

The directors of the event; Paolo Monaci, Marco Spagnoli and Pina Traini have come up with two winning ideas inside the setting of the Golden Graal which is not the usual elegant promenade where we you already know who won!

This is the first award to have a student jury, actors, authors and technicians of tomorrow, having the experiences of a whole continent ready to pick up immediately new ideas, new impulses and new ferments, which make them, award the new the better sometimes the unknown (for now) to the most.

The second idea is to not only have an awards ceremony but also , in the two following days, two days of workshops. These two days conducted by professionals in the different fields of artistic performance have the intent to create a formative path where exchanges, text, faces, of all Europe will melt together and stimulate each other as to open a special moment of improvisation, lessons and possibly “mise en scène”.
