call for independent film-makers

The community the landscape and the territory are the elements which make LFF unique in its genre. The Cinema gets rich with other artistic forms: Video installations, performance Cinema, rural Theatre, applied sounds, international competitions of short and long films, with retrospectives of masters of the Cinema revived in different contexts, because the projection headquarters are the lands, the corn fields, the white little houses of the farmers or the housewives, streets and terraces. A new way of approaching the seventh art which is opened to any social level. A lively perception, for an “easy use” of the stylistic forms and the contents of the audiovisual. A new use for the spectator who becomes direct user of the Cinema applications and their authentic means of communication.
