Out of Bounds

Out of Bounds 7/10/16
Out of Bounds is an independent event, in Molfetta, southern Italy. In the 1945 the U.S. army landed in the south of Italy to liberate it and they came also through Molfetta, our city. During their passage the allies marked down few street quarters as “OUT OF BOUNDS” because of the “social dangerousness” of the people who lived there. In the first two editions, 2013 and 2014, our festival was held in two squares, Piazza San Michele and Piazza delle Erbe, near the areas still considered by many “out of bounds”. The choice of an open air cinema in these squares is related to our social vocational, aimed at encouraging the use and and enjoyment of a certain ‘quality cinema’. The 2015 edition was held in the cloister of the church of San Domenico in the harbor area of the city.
During Out of Bounds events participate about four hundred visitors each year. The open-air cinema “Out Of Bound” is run by filmmakers and aims to celebrate the very best in indie and encourage all aspects of independent film making. It focuses on the unconventional, the unusual, the underground, the intuitive, the innovative and the true. Three main awards will be given to the winning films: Best Film Award, Best Director Award, Audience Award, Two of more Special Mentions.
