FAITO doc FESTIVAL(Italy) 3/17/23
Call for the INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FAITO DOC FESTIVALfor CREATIVE DOCUMENTARIES, FEATURE DOCUMENTARY FILMS AND SHORT FILMS. The theme of the 16th edition 2023 is: DIVERSITY. Speaking of diversity, Marcel Proust writes that: “The only true voyage of discovery, the only fountain of Eternal Youth, would be not to visit strange lands but to possess other eyes, to behold the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to behold the hundred universes that each of them beholds, that each of them is”. In his letters, Rainer Maria Rilke writes: “Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky. Italo Calvino first asks a question:“Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combination of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined? Each life is an encyclopedia, a library, an inventory of objects, a series of styles, and everything can be constantly shuffled and reordered in every way conceivable.” And Theodor W. Adorno to explain diversity tells us about Love: “Love is the power to see similarity in the dissimilar.” We invite, as of now, directors and producers to submit their “visions” about these topics to the XVI edition of the Faito Doc Festival 2023. The doors are open to auteur, experimental or animated documentaries. The selectors are particularly attentive to works characterized by long research in the field, to works that show sensitivity and empathy towards the characters, to poetic films, to impactful testimonies. How to submit: Each author/director may submit one or a maximum of two works. To participate, please send an e-mail to: containing the following informations : The VIMEO link (or other platform) of the film. The synopsis and the technical data sheet. A list of dialogues (with time code) and a .srt subtitles file (mandatory).
