The 2nd edition of the Migrants Film Festival is going to take place in Pollenzo (Bra) at the University of Gastronomic Sciences from the 1st to the 3rd of June. The festival is dedicated to the topic of migration, in particular to second-generation migrants, to coexistence, to identity and to multiculturalism.
The Migrants Film Festival will open a window on new forms of speech in the hors-concours section, whereas the main competing sections will include 4 feature films, 6 documentaries, 6 short films and 6 comedies. Moreover, after giving assistance to their development, the best unedited and unreleased short film screenplay and the best unreleased documentary script will be awarded as well. The Migrants Film Festival might then, with no obligations, become their future producer. The movie selection for the festival will take into consideration titles able to narrate the phenomena of
migration, and to celebrate different cultures and identities.
The chosen theme for the 2017 edition is Encounter, evinced through meetings between people,
between cultures, between languages, between religions and other moments of cross-cultural interaction, not forgetting those linked to gastronomy. The deadline for submissions is May 7th, 2017. . .
Address : Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II Pollenzo - Bra - Italy
