FAITO doc FESTIVAL(Italy) 4/30/19
The 10th edition of Faito Doc Festival theme is RHYTHM.“Now this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far deeper than words. A sight, an emotion, creates this wave in the mind, long before it makes words to fit it”. (Virginia Wolf) During the selection process of the movies related to that theme, priority will be given to filmmaker’s original point of view, to innovative techniques and to the creative and artistic interpretation given to the term rhythm, so difficult to define. What is rhythm? According to dictionaries, it is a regularly repeated pattern of changes, natural changes (such as the breath, the heartbeat, the waves of the sea…) or artificial changes (the tick of the clock, a ringtone…). The rhythm can also be found in art. Indeed, it defines the alternation of colors in a painting, the movements in a dance performance, the arrangement of note lengths in music and of words in poetry. Submission regulation: Each filmmaker or director cannot submit more than two movies. To submit a movie, entrants can: Send an e-mail to with the VIMEO link of the movie, a short synopsis, and the technical specifications. (or can send by mail)
