The Association Sole Luna-Un ponte tra le culture, thanks to the success of the 2015, 2016 editions, continues the project “OPEN DOORS“, whose aim is to propose self-financed initiatives (exhibitions, concerts, performances, dance, theatre, etc.) consistent with the principles of solidarity, dialogue and interaction with every historical form of otherness, which have represented the guidelines of the documentary film festival in all its editions.
The Scientific Committee of the Association will select the most interesting projects received by March 1st, 2017 that will be hosted during the events of the 12th edition of the documentary film Festival, becoming an integral part of the consideration for the public which has been following us for years.
The documentaries will be chosen among films from around the world which will be subscribed to the announcement online starting from the 1stt November 2016 and finish on the February 1st 2017.
Human rights are commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being. This section is considering documentaries that enlighten crisis and problematic situation in the world where the Human Rights are not respected.
There will be considered in this section documentaries that tell stories of peoples, of people and landscapes. The showcase in competition will be an anthropological journey, a cultural bridge of knowledge of the ” other ‘ without any prejudice.
