Ever since 2008, Doc Alliance has been organising an international award intended especially for first-time directors. The Doc Alliance Selection Award helps up-and-coming filmmaking talents to put their name on the documentary map, providing a prize of EUR 5,000 to support their future projects. In 2016, Doc Alliance again nominated 7 outstanding films that will be vying for the 9th annual Doc Alliance Selection Award. The name of the winning title will be announced on August 7, 2016 during an official ceremony at the Locarno International Film Festival.

Searching for an identity. The film records the transition from being a woman to being a man that the director made between the late 1990s and 2005. Simone Cangelosi started work on the project in 1998 as a sort of visual diary following his physical and psychological transformation step by step. Being so bound up with the main character's life, however, the documentary itself changed over the years and turned into something quite different from what had been planned at the outset.
