Mostra del cinema di Taranto
From 20/09/2017 to 20/09/2018, Taranto, Matera, Bari
An event in and for the local area. This was the idea behind the Taranto Mostra del Cinema whose official début was 2016. The programme for this new edition of the cinema festival (2017/2018) is wider ranging than the first with a great many initiatives and a wider reference time framework (three year programme).
The theme running through this edition is metamorphosis, also understood as a message for change and transformation for Taranto. Starting from its potential to be born again. So the exhibition, with its local roots, aims precisely to contribute to developing a critical conscience by means of opportunities for people to meet up and discuss. The first edition was favourably received and now – via three year programming – greater activity planning will be possible as will getting more people involved.
Over these nine months events, workshops, projections, appointments with eminent figures from the big screen and short film competitions are on the agenda as well as one total novelty: non Italian involvement with German Deutsche Kinemathek and Mosfilm Russian film production house. Some have already taken place and others are still being planned and brought to fruition. The programme features events up to 2020.
