Il comune di San Giovanni a Piro – frazione di Scario, in collaborazione con l’associazione culturale Il Varco, è lieto di annunciare un nuovo evento che si terrà durante le celebrazioni annuali dell’Equinozio di Autunno 2019, uno degli eventi più grandi del territorio, che coinvolge le città di Bosco, Scario e San Giovanni a Piro con una serie di concerti, mostre e eventi d’arte.

L'evento ha avuto il privilegio di avere con noi il cantautore Francesco De Gregori al porto di Scario, con una folla di 20.000 persone accorse per il concerto. Nina Zilli e Luca Barbarossa, assieme a tanti altri artisti, hanno completato il cartellone. Quest'anno è stata aggiunta una sezione cinema che ha visto 250 persone di pubblico sedersi a guardare i corti e un'innumerevole folla di passanti.

Due giorni di cinema con i migliori corti ricevuti attraverso questo bando che selezioneremo da tutto il mondo grazie alla collaborazione con lo staff dell’associazione culturale senza scopo di lucro Il Varco, che organizza già uno dei festival indipendenti più importanti in Italia, “Il Varco – International Short Film Festival”.

La città di Scario è famosa per la qualità delle sue acque, per la sua posizione nel Golfo di Policastro. Molti turisti accorrono da tutto il mondo per godere della bellezza delle spiagge scolpite nella pietra, accessibili solo tramite barca. Acque chiare e trasparenti come in un paradiso tropicale.

Unitevi a noi per un’esperienza di mare, arte e cultura.

Feature film festival


Revelation started life in 1997 as an ‘underground’ event in the back room basement of the Greenwich Club, at the time Perth’s smoothest jazz and music venue. All works were screened purely on 16mm film and the festival also featured live music, poetry and guest presentations. Revelation was designed to showcase a range of unique and progressive short, feature, documentary, archival and animated works which were at the forefront of contemporary underground filmmaking, at the same time contextualising these works through a variety of curated archival programs highlighting pivotal points in independent filmmaking.

Rapidly outgrowing the intimate surrounds of the Greenwich Club, Revelation now spans venues across Perth and Fremantle and features some of the most acclaimed films from the international film festival scene and includes gallery and installation works, live performances, an academic conference and a unique seminar and masterclass series. Revelation’s market penetration is today at its most comprehensive ever, engaging new local, national and international audiences.

More than 500 films are submitted each year for selection from local and international filmmakers, and the event’s screen conference component is fast becoming a huge draw for the world’s filmmaking community.

Revelation was invited to present the public screening component of the Australian International Documentary Conference as part of the Perth International Arts Festival in 2000 and 2001 and since then has seen itself as a stand-alone event.

The festival’s screen conference is expected to become an even larger draw for Australian and international filmmakers.

Revelation is an official AACTA Awards Qualifying Film Festival

Vermenara's challenge: Trophy + 100 euros. Award dedicated to the best horror film of the edition that will be voted during the drive-in marathon on the night of the first of November.

The award is inspired by a Campania tradition, according to which the Vermenara was an evil able to install itself in the body of man (especially children) following a strong fear. A debilitating evil that could only be saved thanks to magical rituals put in place by the so-called Incarmatrice, an esoteric figure with powers that were handed down with appropriate rites.
