Online showcase of the Sole Luna Doc Film Festival winner films
This year Sole Luna Doc Film Festival will celebrate fifteen years of activity, an important goal which deserves to be worthily celebrated, to thank the audience who has been following us and has been growing year after year, more and more watchful and demanding. We were going to schedule several events that would accompany us to the 15th edition inauguration, from the 6th to the 12th July, 2020, at Santa Maria dello Spasimo. Things went differently, but we wanted to stay with you the way this suspended time that we are all experiencing allowed us to do. Bring the Doc home, a project for which the directors and the producers involved generously gave their approval, has made, on our website, a selection of documentaries from our archives available for free, and thousands of people have really appreciated our proposal.
The showcase we are proposing today, 15 DOC, is about the prizewinning movies of the 14 Festival editions, from 2006 to 2009, which were awarded by our international juries, different for each edition. It is a privileged opportunity to reread our recent history, with its own contradictions but also its poetry and policies, so as to seek to understand what it has been done and what is left to do. It is our homage to our audience, whom we hope to embrace soon again; it is our contribution and our thanks to the sense of responsibility showed by everyone in these days that we would never have imagined we would experience, which makes us hope – reasonably – that “after” will never be the same again. This is the testimony of our commitment for the creation of a more fair and human society.
The showcase will be held online from the 30th April to the 18th June; the documentaries will be streamed on demand for free from the festival’s website every Tuesday and Thursday, according to the following calendar. Enjoy!
