The 2008 edition of the AsoloArtFilmFestival will be held in Asolo (Treviso) from the 29th August to the 7th 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 35 years from its foundation, his annual exhibition with a contest dedicated to films and videos dealing with the topics of art.

Since then and every year the Festival is also the stage for the Career Award “Falvia Paulon” and the “Price for Art and Culture” awarding an artist of international success who has left a significant trace on the scene of the contemporary art and cinema scene, both with his/her art and personality.

The contest is divided into six sections:

  • Films On Art for works on art;
  • 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 history, movements, main personalities, works and projects;
  • 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 and music, produced by schools of cinema, specialized higher education institutes and universities.
  • Making Of for productions related to the productive aspect of a film or other works.
