City to live

Bra is home to one of the most well-known Italian film festivals reserved for short films (films lasting less than the 30 minutes). Like many other events organized by the municipal administration, this also has annual cadence and the next edition, the fifth, will take place in the spring of 2004. As the aim of the exhibition is to highlight the short film as an original form of expression, to encourage youth production and to bring to the attention of the local public the various experiences of film directors around the world and of the Italian scriptwriters who work with the short form.

There are three competing sections of the festival:

Short movie in Europe - Two awards "The Zizzola"For the best short film produced in a country in Europe and for the best short film in Italy City Bra Award for the best Italian screenplay for short films

Slow Food is a movie an international contest for thematic short films about love for food, featuring two sections dedicated to fiction short film and documentary.

In order to be able to participate, you must respond to the competition notice published in the autumn preceding the review (next spring 2004).

A feature that has always distinguished the film festival in the province of Braida is the large audience that joins the screening rooms in each order of seats. In the last edition the projections took place in the two multi-city towns present in the historical center, gathering a considerable appreciation both for the public and for the critics.

The directors of "Corto in Bra" are director Luca Busso, director and screenwriter Luisa Grosso and writer and musician Stefano Sardo.

"God created heaven and earth in six days, then rested. But he forgot about Iceland ... here in fact the creation continues every day ".

Wings Platinum 2,35: 1, 6,30 minutes

"Ignoring limits, properties, territories, borders, this is the sacred vow of nature ... Here, mountains and plateaus, pastures and forests, valleys and clearings, like slow vessels with purple sails, lead man towards an endless miracle, towards a future of beauty and peace. " This French phrase, Jean Siccardi, sums up the vocation of the two cross-border parks (Parc National du Mercantour and the Alpes-Maritimes Natural Park) that with this multivision celebrate their twenty-five years of life.

Invent the city (Alex Rowbotham - Aldo Di Russo)
Watchout 3: 1, 5 minutes
The second part of the work started last year for Acer brings us to the frontiers of imagination and perception as the interpretative keys necessary for everyday life. Every place, every building, every corner of our city takes its meaning from the use it is made of and how we look at it, without us as "interpreters" what is built by man would be "invisible". A Fellinian paradox stands for the idea that life is a continuous narrative and that each of us can be the storyteller of himself.

The text for this multivision is taken from one of those chains of S. Antonio "send it to other 10 people to have luck forever". If the world were made of 100, how many people would be men, and how many women? How many would be Europeans? How many would own most of the wealth and where would they own it?

Italian Association of Artistic Multivision Authors

AIDAMA was born in 1994 in Rieti to create a new space for all artists who want to express themselves with photography but go beyond the same. The basic idea of ​​using photography as a brick to build a building that was a work of art was quickly found in many photo enthusiasts.

The new Concepts of Idea-Image-Sound, proposed by Aidama, quickly replaced the simple slideshow sequences accompanied by a sound commentary. The message Aidama was to create more correlation between the various components of multivision, pointing to paths for building programs that not only allowed a beautiful image but which offered the spectator a global emotion dictated by the importance of message, direction, musical choice, and technical ability to assemble everything.
The Italian Association of Artistic Multivision Authors is a non-profit cultural association that intends:
- promote multivision in Italy
- to be a precise and engaging point of reference for all multivision enthusiasts
- contribute to the artistic and technical growth of its members
- intervening in national and international organizations with the aim of providing a series of useful information to help, improve and optimize multivision demonstrations

- Produce unpublished multi-show shows
- offer all information about multivision activities in Italy and abroad.
