Mission / description 5th CinemAvvenire Film Festival – Overlook 2014 will be hold from December 12 – 21 in a historic district of Rome.
The mission of the festival is to offer an international programming to the general public and young students. The competitive e non-competitive sections are mean to focus on the new European cinematographic scenario inviting young talents to submit their own works.
The festival is actually a new born subject. The innovation bases on three axes: promoting a diversity of European audiovisual works, audience development and film literacy. These three axes are necessary for the objectives the festival aims to.
The first one entails the expansion of the European works’ circulation as well as the divulgation of cultural diversity through agreements made with European partners to get the broadest range of audiovisual works around Europe; the European-friendly programming adopted will pay attention to works from low-production countries. A look at the past won’t be ignored –bringing to light some “overlooked” zone of Cinema History – as it belongs to the logic of discovery too.
The second objective is about developing a new and larger audience by audiovisual literacy, and promoting a direct involvement of young students in the festival organization. Trainings will be available both during and in the months preceding the festival in order to improve students’ know-how in the audiovisual fields. Plus, all the juries of the festival will involve young students entailing educational and audience development.
Finally, the festival is set in a lowly zone of Rome giving the possibility to people, usually far from cultural events, to get into an international event . The expected result is to turn the neighbor into a “pedestrian island of cinema”, a place where discover new talents and unknown traditions. The proximity to and the collaboration with the biggest Italian University testify a natural inclination of this place to host our objectives.
