With this initiative, Ceramiche Caesar reaffirms its affinity for the worlds of architecture and design and its commitment to innovation, expressed in its unceasing research into ceramic solutions as well as in the use of cutting edge communications.


Cinema is here a valuable tool for expressing  Caesar's  values  in  an  original  way,  including  its  Made  in  Italy  branding,  and its  social and environmental ethics, which can be summed up as a green oriented approach which respects both  man  and  the  ecosystem:  aspects  which  are  nourished  by  both  the  company's Emilian  rootsand its global reach.

The latest CDFA edition: 2023

The fourth edition of the award was won by Jim Stephenson with his short film Jubilee Pools

The film Jubilee Pools shows the relationship between place, people, and space – an inseparable triad that accompanies everyone's life. For space is precisely the place where we create memories and bonds. The design visions in this narrative also take into account the history of the place and the stories of a community that has grown around it.

Among the awards given during the night of 4 May, students of of the University of Bologna conferred the Wannabe Designers Mention on In Between by Samir Karahoda. In addition, Ken Rischard won the People’s Mention with the film Glimmen.
