SUBMITTING TO THE MyART FILM FESTIVAL IS NOW OPEN
THE CALL CLOSES 31TH JULY 2019
Third edition of a Mediterranean Film Festival on Migration and Human Rights.
Cosenza (Italy): 15th-19th October 2019
MyART is a Mediterranean Film Festival on Migration and Human Rights. In the heart of the Mediterranean (Cosenza, Calabria), we create space for alternative storytelling and debates. We showcase independent, high-quality film and documentary productions and organize a number of events before, during, and after the festival.
This year, we turn the spotlight also on women and girls. We want to discuss violations of their basic human rights and shed light on all sorts of gender-based discrimination. At the same time, we aim to tell stories of women as change agents, of empowerment and freedom.
The Mediterranean Sea as the cradle of civilization has always been connecting, rather than dividing people. In this tradition, we are a platform for exchange between films, filmmakers and the audience, NGOs and activists from all countries bordering the Mediterranean.
Films and videos that can participate in the competition sections trailers preferably in Italian are those produced after 1st January 2017.
The program of the Festival is subdivided into the following cinematographic sections with the presentation of the following prizes*:
