This year the festival in Palermo will be held in the fascinating location of Santa Maria dello Spasimo and in its Garden above the walls. During the whole week of the festival we will set up the Visioni (Di) Visioni photographic exhibition, edited by Enzima. There will also be an exhibition of a series of drawings by Gianluca Costantini realized during the Human Rights Festival in Milan. Sole Luna Doc Film Festival was a partner of the festival in Milan being in charge of the official selection of the documentaries in competition.
Also for this edition we have forged various partnerships with the city associations within a “networking” perspective. In particular, events are planned in collaboration with foreign cultural institutes such as Cervantes, the Institut Français and the Goethe Institut.
This coming edition has all the ingredients for success, we now rely on the participation of our enthusiastic audience to share all together, in the magical atmosphere of Santa Maria dello Spasimo where the Sole Luna Festival has moved its first steps twelve years ago, a program full of screenings and stories from all over the world that can become a reflection of the complex and fascinating reality that surrounds us.
