Artecinema
Film Festival

Artecinema, an international film festival of documentaries regarding contemporary art, was established in 1996 with the objective of making various facets of contemporary art known to the public at large.

This objective has been attained by presenting a selection of documentaries of important artists, architects and photographers who have been active during the last fifty years and includes interviews, filmed biographies and narratives based upon archive materials which has made it possible to bring the universe of visual arts to life on the screen.

Each year, Artecinema presents a selection of some thirty documentaries from the world over which have been painstakingly sought out directly from the directors and producers. The programme is divided into three sections: Art and environs, Architecture and Photography.

The films, shown in the original languages with simultaneous interpretation provided via earphones, are alternated by round table encounters-debates featuring the directors, the artists and the producers. More than 7,000 spectators from all over Italy and abroad participate in the festival.

Artecinema has been awarded a medal of recognition by the President of the Republic.
