AAFF 2019 – 37° EDITION
from the 20th to the 23rd of June
Asolo Art Film Festival, created in 1973 as a detachment of the Venice Biennale on the impulse of critics and essayist Flavia Paulon and sponsored at the time by UNESCO as an international model of correlation between cinema and visual arts, is pleased to present its 37th edition under the prestigious artistic direction of Cosimo Terlizzi, appreciated and eclectic poet of visual languages.
The festival has become the crossroads of leading figures (Alain Resnais, Jean Rouch, Luciano Emmer, Ingrid Bergman, Yoko Ono…) and includes the sections “Films on Art” (biographies, historical reconstruction work, critical interpretation on the protagonists of the Arts ) and “Art films” for audiovisual works realized with any technology of artistic expression. The Festival is now enriched by the “Internet art” category dedicated to works conceived for the web, without limit of duration.
Submissions are now open. Works produced after January 1, 2017 are accepted.
The selected films, chosen by a team of multidisciplinary professionals, will compete for the awarding of cash prizes.
The Festival will take place from the 20th to 23rd of June 2019 in the beautiful setting of Asolo (TV), one of the most beautiful towns in Italy thanks to the importance of its historical and artistic heritage.
