The 5th Editon of Video Festival in the City of Imperia, Liguria

The 5th edition of the Video Festival in the City of Imperia this year will be held from April 20th to 24th 2010, in the city of Imperia (Region of Liguria).

Such a festival was born in 2006 from an idea of the current Artistic Director in order to create an innovative event which could give the city and its province a new image and could involve authors of amateur videos from the near cities and seaside resorts of the Western Liguria Riviera.

But such a renowned festival, since its first edition, had a national connotation, because many authors coming from all over Italy took part in the competition, and different competitive sections were created.

Nowadays, the Festival counts 685 works entered from 51 different countries. What else? Well, the Video Festival of Imperia has been recently included in the list of the 13 most important cinema festivals in the world, indicated and surveyed by UNESCO: un unbelievable result for a 4 years old competition!

This year, the event presents a new category called “Explorer”, which will be open to the national and international public showing Tourist and Naturalistic documentary films.

In addition, we will find again the second edition of the “Festival of the Festivals”, the competitive category dedicated to all the other International Festivals that will participate in the contest with the works awarded in their last edition.

Furthermore, we remind you also the original Graphic Competition, conceived for the creation of the image that would have represented the 5th edition of the festival. More than 100 works to select and 25 awards to give to winners.
