International Festivals of Short Films and Social Documentaries

Festival corto e documentari 1 JPG With the Italian premiere of Captive, the Phillipine director Brillante Mendoza will open the "Terra di Tutti" Film Festival in Bologna. This film festival is dedicated to social documentaries and movies from the southern part of the world and is organized by the non governmental agencies Cospe and Gvc. 


This event will be held from October 2-14 with meetings, premieres and international guests who will invade the most beautiful places in Bologna for twelve days. The festival is dedicated to stories that have been ignored by the mass media.


On schedule are events, conventions, and film showings with themed sessions focusing on Bosnia, Palestine, migration and new poverty, fighting for rights and access to resources, as well as protecting biodiversity. Just to name a few of the films showing: Mare Chiuso by Stefano Liberti and Andrea Segre, presented at the Venice Film Festival and Vik Utopia by Anna Maria Selini. 


Festival corto e documentari 2 JPG In Reggio Emilia, from October 5-9, the eleventh edition of “Reggio Film Festival- International Short Film Contest”, will be held. This festival is one of the most important Italian events dedicated to international short films. It is focused on the importance of works done by video makers from all over the world, and it also creates an opportunity for visitors to take a closer look at themes which are at times difficult to deal with, thus spreading knowledge and promoting the arts, in particular the art of cinema.


In fact, this festival sets itself apart for the choice of a single theme which is looked at through many different expressions, so not just cinema, but also art, culture, words, music and shows. This year's theme is "Città-City" and this edition's focus will be on the Polish animation studio Se-Ma-For.  Over 1000 films were submitted, of which 78 short films were selected out of which 26 are linked to the theme of this edition.  Among the guests are Davide Ferrario, Aterballetto, Fabrizio Plessi, the Se-Ma-For Studio, Marek Skrobecki, Antonella Bukovaz and the Cortomobile.


stival corto e documentari 3 JPG Villanova in Corto 6” is a festival of short films dedicated to alternative, independent films, done on a small budget but of high quality.  "Villanova in Corto 6" will be held in Villanova di Bagnacavallo, near Ravenna, from October 5-7, and hopes to shock minds, like a short circuit for the passiveness of everyday life, an electric shock that will produce new stimuli, new cultural and expressive forms. 


There are three high voltage sections: High Tension (horror, thrillers, mystery and action), Alternating Current (comic, trash, wacky) and Free Reception (open theme, with a focus on works that are particularly original, innovative and experimental).
