First cinema and audiovision’s festival dedicated to social issues and civil commitment

In a historical moment in which the fear of different seems to prevail and the values of equality and social justice are neglected for the benefit of a widespread selfshness, it seems important to us to experiment new initiative to promote the positive values that the Associazione Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo tried to convey in these years using the universal language of the music. Solidarity, hospitality, integration, civil commitment,those are the values we want to pass on through cinema and audiovision’s language, in an active citizenship experience above all young people, to give our contribution to a wide cultural sensibility growth, with a view to a supportive, multicultural and cohesive society.
Officine social movie: First cinema and audiovision’s festival dedicated to social issues and civil commitment and to dissemination of content that promoted solidarity, hospitality, social inclusion, cultural diversity and rights values.
Officine social movie is born for an attempt to create new artistic context and new formulas to convey, through cinema and audiovision’s versatily, the idea of cultural and social commitment above expressed. A project that foresees the realization of “number one edition” of a cinema and audiovison’s festival that, in our intentions, it will have to become an annual appointment to keep in the month of June, using the two rooms and the Arena of Arezzo’s Cinema Eden, in collaboration with Officine della Cultura. An open festival to short films presented by young emergent and independent filmmakers and videomakers, in the competition for which we present the call, and a showcase dedicated to projection of titles (movie, docu-movie, animation…) on call through film distribution channels also alternative. Projections that will be enriched by guest’s presence (filmmakers, authors, screenwriters, actors) with whose the audience will have the opportunity to confront at the end of projection.
We want to report that Officine Social Movie is born with the intention to pose the same caution be final result (the festival) be on the creation and implementation project’s process. One of the targets is in fact the involvement of a group of young people who can share an active citizenship, giving space to their creativity.
To arrive to the festival made up by the step of design, analysis, planning and management, communication and critical vision of short films in the competition, will be part of the project itself, with the same importance of the festival days.
The group will be composed by some young people of the promoter association with around twenty people of the students from the Multimedia, cinema and graphic design sections of Liceo Artistico, that flanked by expert and operation, will draw the outlines of the festival, will draw up the national competition announcement, will be an integral part in the selection of short films in competition and will be part of the jury who will designate it the winners.
The students, in addition of being part of the group of the design team, will be involved in the creation of an own short film too, to be presented out of competition, as well as for the project and the festival’s video-photographic documentation.
Officine Social Movie is a project made to be worth on “Bando Giovani protagonisti per le comunità locali 2019” made by Cesvot, funded with the contribution of “Regione Toscana- Giovanisì” in agreement with “Dipartimento della Gioventù e del Servizio Civile Nazione” with participation and funding by “Fondazione Monte dei Paschi di Siena”.

Finals-battles! The vote of three of the independent jury right in the room! The jury of filmmakers against the press and the audience!

Also, each Director of the official selection of the month can come and present his film to the public in the form of a show, trailer, etc.at a special presentation program of the festival.

OUR FESTIVAL OUT OF POLITICS
It connects people, their kind hearts and creativity. Therefore, initially we set a goal to hold this festival every year in different countries. The first festival was held in 2018 in Moscow, Russia. Last year, the final of our festival was held in the capital of Belarus, Minsk. Where will the festival take place this year? It will be a surprise.

FESTIVAL ORGANIZER

The festival is organized by the Vyatkin Publishing House, which has existed since 2003 and is located in Podolsk, 20 minutes from Moscow. We publish books in author's gift and leather hand-made bindings, make documentaries, short-length films and presentation videos. The publishing house is a permanent member of international and Russian exhibitions, festivals and forums. The publishing house also participates in organizing charity events, psychological and thematic seminars, meetings with authors, film directors and actors.

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF THE FESTIVAL

Our festival will be the first to select films on the principle of a duel, as in sports. The films have to go through several stages: official selection, semi-final and final. Along with the well-known masters of cinematograph, the audience will also evaluate the films themselves.

The purpose of the festival is to stimulate young filmmakers for the new cinema, appreciating their work and to acquaint the filmmakers with culture and life of the worlde. We accept all genres of films from all over the world and give the opportunity for new filmmakers to evaluate their films and compete with other famous cinematographers.

Films made with soul and love are accepted from the heart, and our viewers want to see films in which one can experience and rejoice, love and be inspired, think and learn, believe, dream and enjoy viewing. We welcome new ideas and forms, a new vision and creativity in all its manifestations. Films do not have to be premieres, but all the premieres will be separately marked by the organizers. The festival will show the best of the presented films.

Each film that has entered the official selection will receive a certificate. The prize of audience sympathy will be drawn. And at the end of the festival, of course, a buffet table and a photo session.

To all who want to visit our holiday, you need to get accreditation on the festival's website in advance and notify us by e-mail.

These are films made from the heart and for people of all genres, denying aggression and wars.

FRESCO: a New Formula of a Film Festival
Fresco is an international initiative that represents a thoroughly new format, distinct from the notions typical to the society. A festival that aims at the presentation of international spiritual works and cultural pieces combined with the organization of free and healthy social discussions concerning the issues raised by them.

Many festivals demonstrate films on global problems in the frameworks of their program. As a rule, after such films the audience needs to discuss and adopt what they have seen, however, the film remains the only source for an answer to the questions arisen. “FRESCO” film reviews come to fill in this gap.
FRESCO: an Informal Approach
"FRESCO" offers an informal approach to the participants of the film festival along all the stages of the festival starting from the film review up to the places the events are held, from the seat up to the prize.

The wonderful films, photo exhibitions, and shows brought to Armenia will go out from cinemas and literally “enter the streets”.
Round-the-clock open air demonstrations and film reviews “with no ticket” will literally become part of the Armenians’ everyday life 10 days on.

FRESCO Film-Program: Let’s Speak the Language of Humanism
The festival will contain both competitive and non-competitive programs. Fiction and documentary, full-length and short-length films and video materials of different formats, in which wars, violence, national, religious and any other types of discrimination, ecological disasters of human origin are denounced, and where peace, tolerance, humanism and global values are advocated.:

Cinema figures of worldwide fame and other guests corresponding to the subjects of the films shown, that is - church clerks, the intellectuals, musicians, psychologists, etc., will be invited to Armenia from different countries to participate in the festival.

About the Global problems in a Comprehensible/Simple Language
Not only the creators of the film strip will take part in the discussions following, but also church clerks, psychologists, and specialists directly concerning the issues arisen in the film and people responsible for the field. Any conceptual and technical detail concerning the film review is to contribute to the active and unconstrained participation in the discussions. The specialists will be part of the film watchers, professional orations will be replaced by unconstrained communication and active discussions. The films and direct communication with their creators will enable to “notice” the claimed issues in our country, observe them in the context of other countries’ experience, and the discussion with the people specialized and responsible for the field will become one of the most effective ways of developing versions for the solution to those issues.

FRESCO is Open to Anyone
The festival also gives a special importance to the employment of special social groups and especially individuals with limited abilities. Due to the cooperation with the institutes specialized in the field individuals with a disablement will not only participate in all the measures of the festival but also be actively involved in all the organizational works of "FRESCO".

The goals of the festival are:
- To promote the establishment of love, solidarity, and human values in the society with the help of spiritual and cultural dialogue,
- To spread international and religious tolerance,
- To create and promote the development of spiritual and moral films and to raise their social awareness as a social-cultural factor,
- To promote the communication among cultural representatives of different countries and the creation of the mutually beneficial field for their collaboration.

Short film festival


Open Air Short Film Festival differs from other festivals in its program. The three main criteria for the selection of the films are laconism, exclusivity an diversity.

All the films included in the Festival’s program do not exceed 5 minutes, which is more than enough to to express the director’s idea and build up the sensual connection with the audience. The selected films can be seen only at our festival or at the other film festivals, they are not available online. The films are neither limited by the theme, nor the genre, nor the format, which is the determining factor of the diversity of the Open Air Short Film Festival program.

As the world of cinema is rushing forward faster and faster every year, Open Air Short Film Festival tries to introduce to the audience the novelties of the world of short film cinema, shedding the light on its latest and most interesting trends.
