The 2009 edition of AsoloArtFilmFestival will be held in Asolo (Treviso) from the 28th of August to the 6th of September. AsoloArtFilmFestival upholds the cultural traditions and embodies the concepts established by the Festival Internazionale del Film sull’Arte e di Biografie d’Artista. Created in 1973 by Flavia Paulon, the former festival enjoyed great international success for over two decades, until it was interrupted in the middle of the ’90s.
Founded in 2001, AsoloArtFilmFestival also in this edition will offer, after 36 years from its foundation, his annual exhibition with a contest dedicated to films and videos dealing with the topic of art in all its forms.

The contest is divided into six sections:

  • FILMS ON ART for works on art in all its forms;
  • ARTIST’S BIOGRAPHIES for works of historical reconstruction and critical interpretation on personalities from the world of art and music;
  • FILMS ON ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN for works on architecture, urbanism and design relating to art in all its forms;
  • VIDEO ART & COMPUTER ART for works using electronics or computer technologies as a method of direct artistic expression;
  • PRODUCTIONS OF SCHOOLS OF CINEMA related to art in all its forms, produced by schools of cinema, specialized higher education institutes and universities;
  • HARMONY AND TERRITORY documenting works for the harmonious development of the territory and its contradictions, increasing the value of potential and resources with respect for culture and the environment.

The Festival is conceived and organised by the Cultural Association A.I.A.F. (Asolo International Art Festival), a non profit private organization with legal status (Veneto Regional Council Decree (DGR) N°. 59/41.03 of 18.04.03).
