Periodo del Festival:

Descrizione del Festival: 

The 24th edition of Women’s Director Festival “Sguardi Altrove International Film Festival” will be held in Milan (Italy) from March 12th to March 19th, 2017.

The Festival main theme for 2017 Edition will be:
Women’s Empowerment: Working to Overcome Gender Inequality

1. The Festival’s aim is to encourage, through cinematographic art and expression, a reflection on relevant issues for women related to their specific cultural, political and social context but also according to a multicultural and global perspective. Therefore, the Festival itself wants to be a place for intercultural dialogue and dialectical comparison between different cinematographies as well as an opportunity to promote distribution of films that, in spite of their quality and thematic relevance, are unlikely to have access to commercial circuits. The Festival pays also particular attention to emerging cinemas and young female filmmakers.
2. The Festival is divided into 4 competitive sections:

• Nuovi Sguardi, for fiction feature-length films;

• Le Donne Raccontano, dedicated to documentaries;

• Sguardi (S)confinati, international short films competition

• Frameitalia: italian competition dedicated to male and female directors

The festival also include non-competitive sections such as:

• Human Rights, Today (international section dedicated to documentaries and “docu-fiction” - directed by both male and female filmmakers - focused on human rights and their violation all over the world in peacetime as well as related to wars and other conflicts)

• Other special sections and/or focus on particular countries or geographical and political areas, decided by the Festival
A special focus on ‘Women Chinese Directors’ will be organized within the 2017 Festival Edition.
