Festival Name: Officinema Festival
Location: Bologna, Italy
Rooted in the present but looking to the future, Officinema has become an unmissable event for anyone who wants to discover cinematic debuts, independent productions and the best of student films from Europe’s major film schools. Seeking out the new frontiers of audiovisual media since its inception in 19XX, Officinema is a festival dedicated to the future, providing a showcase for the directors and films that will shape the next generation of cinema.
The festival’s foundations rest on a pair of important sections which over the years have gambled on future talent and welcomed some of the most promising filmmakers at an international level: the Mostra delle Scuole Europee di Cinema (exhibition of European film schools) and Visioni Italiane (Italian visions). The first is designed to attract and publicize the finest works made in Europe’s film schools, while the second combs through the vast mass of independently produced short films made every year in Italy to find the best examples.
