OPEN CALL FOR THE FIRST EDITION OF THE CONTEST
(deadline on June 30th 2008)
Who can participate?
Italian and foreign video makers, directors, documentary film makers, artists, with no age limit, can participate.
What does "videoTale" mean?
The videoTale is not only a documentary on a territory or an aspect of it.
The videoTale expresses with images the connection between man and territory, through a personal experience, one life story, specifically linked to that place and at the same time able to tell something about the place itself.
What does "promotion of the territory" mean?
The promotion of the territory expresses itself through the valorization of the specifics of a place. Through a personal story the visible and invisible aspects that connote a territory are pointed out, in order to provoke interest and to encourage the discovery of the spirit of the place.
In which territories can the video be realized?
The video admitted to the competition can be related to any territory either in Italy or abroad.
