Animated in Video. The most personal of pleasures
Call for video contributions
The International Festival Arrivano dal Mare!, in partnership with Alpe Adria Puppet Festival, Anima International Festival, La Macchina dei Sogni, Immagina Festival, INCANTI Rassegna Internazionale di Teatro di Figura, Segni New Generations Festival, proposes the video contest Animati in video. The most private of pleasures. The contest will take place between the 21st and the 29th of May 2022 in Ravenna. Gambettola, Longiano and Gatteo (Italy), during the ADM Festival.
The topic of the call reflects the general topic of this Festival edition: human rights and, particularly, the one which represents both a right and a pleasure, "the most private" as Vita Sakville West defined it: the right to travel. Travelling always is a growth and develolment experiece, an opportunity pushing us toward what we don't know and forcing us to deal with our limitations. Travelling is both a right and a pleasure which we have been physically denied in the past two years, but which can't be denied to imagination. At the same time, travelling is a pleasure that, too often yet, is transformed in an imperative and assumes the tarrible face of the leak and the desperate try of safeguarding one's right to life. All contents treating this topic will be admitted to the call.
