Mission / description Detour on the Road Film Festival, an “on the road” and “cross-border” independent film festival, has reached its fourth edition as an itinerant project presented at a variety of venues across Rome and Lazio, devoted to independent cinema and visual arts, both domestic and international, inspired by journeys and borderlands.

The Festival traces an harmonious path for the International Independent Cinema with previews and unpublished works. We look for films that develop, through linguistic and/or narrative skills, a critical and inventive approach to the subject guidelines of the Festival: a traveling mood with digressions from fixed paths, where the route is what matters, not the destination.

This fourth edition wants to emphasise what a journey leaves us with: traces, memories, encounters. It intends to focus on the necessity of the journey as an experience of contact, of bridging boundaries, of interrelation with another person.

The festival will take place in October/November 2016, over a span of 8 days when screenings, meetings and events will be presented and held at the Detour Cinema in downtown Rome and in other independent cinema venues, film clubs, schools and cultural spaces.

The DETOUR arthouse cinema, with its historical location in the city centre of Rome since 1997, will be the head-quarter of the festival and will host part of the retrospective program, several selected works, master classes, related events and meetings.

Detour On the Road Film Festival 2016 is composed of four sections, with two competitive ones, focused on concepts such as journey, road, detouring, boundaries and frontier.
