Overlook 2014 - 5th CinemAvvenire Film Festival

The Overlook 2014 - 5th CinemAvvenire Film Festival is launching its Call for Entries, inviting filmmakers around the world to submit feature films, shorts, documentaries, animation and experimental works. Overlook 2014 will run from December 12 – 21, and deadline for submission is the 23 August 2014. 

5th CinemAvvenire Film Festival carries on and strenght the International/European dimension of the Associazione Centro Internazionale CinemAvvenire, a project managed with enthusiasm and determination since 1992 through the starting idea by Gillo Pontecorvo.

Overlook 2014 signs a crucial step forward, supported by the experiences of the last editions, by a broader view that a strong cultural player as CinemAvvenire has the cards for playing.

The word itself – overlook – claims the will and the need to get ready every tool at disposal for the discover and the exploration of new styles and talents, assisting and supporting the independent productions setting a European platform for their expectations. Archeology and recovery won’t be ignored –bringing to light some unpopular zone of Cinema History – as they belong to the logic of discovery too.

Moreover, for the 2014 edition, we have concluded many deals with several partners around Europe.  This partnerships are  planned to decentralize the event with the aim to promote young talents inside a European web allowing audiovisual works to get a broader circulation around EU.

This European direction led us choosing the platypus as logo for our festival. It unites different parts from different animals and this feature makes it unique. It has a duckbill, the tail as rodents, the paws as reptiles and it lays eggs notwithstanding it is a mammal animal. Its skills let it free form any categorization and guardian of a precious metaphor: united in diversity.
