The award – unique in Italy – dedicated exclusively to authors of short film soundtracks.

Since 2016, the inseparable relationship between sound, music, images, and storytelling has found a specific valorisation at Lago Film Fest through the L.O.S.T. Award, which represents a unicum dedicated to Italian short films, in which the awarding of the prize, as part of the National Competition and the Veneto Region Award, takes place by focusing on a fundamental factor of film fruition: listening.

It is a complex evaluation, due to the diversity of the elements involved. Under the lens of the jury, which is equally composite, are the creative depth, the technical quality, and the emotional impact that the sound system as a whole arouses, merging with the images and transforming their perception.
