“Imperia in 35 mm”: Video Festival Imperia 2012

  Imperia, the 7th edition of Video Festival Imperia (International Festival of    Cinematographic    Digital Art) is going to start from 24th to 28th April 2012. Each year it  becomes more and more  a centre of national and international attraction for professionals  from all over the world: the  number of participants increases, there are nearly 700 works from  51 countries. This testifies  how much the festival is growing thanks to the richness and the  variety of performances.

 With every passing year, the importance of Imperia and its festival has continued to grow: for  three consecutive years UNESCO has mentioned Imperia festival as one of the 13 most  important festivals in the world for “Diffusion and preservation of cultural diversity”.

The 7th edition will offer some innovations: the screenings will take place for the first time in the Chamber of Commerce Auditorium that can accommodate 470 people; it is scheduled a collaboration with Villa Faraldi Festival, directed by the renowned producer Stefano Senardi.


The most important innovation is “Imperia in 35 mm, The World in a Province”, a project conceived for promoting the Riviera as a location for full-length-film and advertising spots. For the first time, film-makers are not looking for a place where they want to shoot but, on the contrary, it’s the city of Imperia that contacts studios and directors to let them know that they can make use of such outstanding places as a setting for their movies and videos.


Turning Villa Nobel, Villa Grock or many other enchanting spots into a set is a way to make them popular.


Among the most famous film production held in Riviera, there is the action movie “The Bourne Identity” with Matt Damon, shot in the harbour of Oneglia.


The festival offers not only movies, but also a wide choice of events like conferences, special initiatives and meetings with guests of honour.


Those who are fond of cinema and movies and not only, can’t miss such an important event like Video Festival Imperia: this could be the opportunity to visit the Ligurian coast.
