Voyage in the fascination of rediscovery
We live in a particular period. A time intellectual, artistic, cultural and certainly also spiritual. And it’s just with this spirit I tried to conceive this festival, as often is for works to wich I take up. In Italy, as ebroad, there are many film festivals thanks to cinema author, but even the most severe artist, find place to express its talent. Why then another festival? And why just in the south? As I was sayng before, we live in a period of a deep cultural and artistic ferment, which could express itself in the cradle of civilization. Perhaps many people don’t still know that the name Italia was given first to the actual Region Calabria, just there were once there was also a town wich even Platone described ideal polis: “Sybaris”. A model town wich today we consider european model. Still before of the Roman Empire, in Calabria, in the ancient Bruzi people Land, with the coming of the most important greek colonies, there was already a model of ideal polis, where art, theatre, painting, sculpture, architecture have no equal in the world. A splendour envied for centuries, but also an immense human historical-cultural wealth that, after more than two thousand year, still lie shattered in the dark of the earth. Therefore here the cinema, the art excellence to revive what sometimes only words or images don’t succeed to communicate. A festival just at the door of the Mediterranean Sea, as a way of admittance to select the “other” cinema, the avant-garde one… The one that very often goes unobserved, thus unexplored and never awarded. A festival thus for everyone. One occasion in which the protagonist will have to be also places that, seen with respect, with passion, with enthusiasm, with wonder, appear to our eyes almost as some sceneries of imaginary, just like a beautiful film when it seems to unite to our life every day. And it’s here, probably, the true magic. (Franco Gramisci, Artistic Director)
