To understand a dream we must examine it from every aspect -
just as you might take an unknown object in your hands and turn it over
and over until you are familiar with every detail of its shape. so you
can understand form with out time.

El Cadáver Exquisito | Counterpart
In my body you search the mountain for the sun buried in it's forest.
In your body I search for the boat adrift in the middle of the night.
Exactly as in a musical score, it is impossible to understand myth as a continous sequence.

ARES Film & Media Festival was born in 2009 in Syracuse, Italy.
It promotes a connection between the world of art and culture and that of new technologies and social responsibility.
The main purpose of the ARES (Art and Social Responsibility) Festival is the promotion of the visual culture and multimedia languages as a vehicle for social cohesion through the creation of an open supporting network aimed at encouraging, helping and linking all the expressions
and positive experiences which can spread the values of pluralism and general well being in the cultural and social fields.
The Festival organizes a debate on the means of social responsibility through conferences
and seminars concerning the social, scientific and environmental fields. It stimulates the meeting of multimedia projects and promotes moments of confrontation on issues concerning the investment in culture as a unique element of communication and building corporate identity
and growth of core values in an organization.
The 3rd ARES Film & Media Festival will take place on next summer - 30th July - 2nd August 2011 - in Syracuse (Italy).

In the world of entertainment today, mainly speaking of film, it's a tough place to find originality. Hollywood films are losing that touch of creativity. It may not seem so when it comes to applying the technological advances in the art. When it comes to story, plot, characters, it seems as if we've heard it all before.
So what do we turn to? Mainstream Hollywood is losing its touch, it's time to look into independent film festivals where we could find the filmmakers of today, living ...
