The return of the Porto Cesario Film Festival: 3 days between art, love and the environment
PORTO CESAREO – Just a few hours before the start of the second edition of the Porto Cesareo Film Festival, the film competition organized by the pro-environment coordinator Porto Cesareo as part of the A-Mare Giovani project, co-financed by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers under the auspices and contribution of the Directorate General of Cinema and Audiovisual of the Ministry of Culture.
From 2 to 4 September through an imaginary journey along the coast, passing through the watchtowers guarding the area, the Labello Tower and the Chianca Tower, a series of events from morning to evening that will take participants on an adventure between art, environment, beauty and history thanks to the work of the exhibition’s many collaborators, coordinated by the Director Artistic Anna Severoli and supervisor Mino Buccolieri.
“This festival unites the different nations of the world through the fluidity of the sea – explain Severoli and Buccolieri -. It is an event that talks about cultures that intersect with each other and build bridges of peace, at a historical moment in which we need it more than ever.”
