This is not the Ennesimo festivalfilosofia!
Ennesimo Film Festival and festivalfilosofiacollaborated for the second time to create a special screening event of short-films on the topic #PERSONA.
Analysing individuals through cinema is a field of investigation that dates back to the first time that someone tried to impress a tiny simple action on a film. Nevertheless, the recognition of one’s persona – through all those processes that trigger the expression of one’s individuality – is involved with the relationship with other individuals and our surrounding environment.
Our selection of short-films for This is not the Ennesimo festivalfilosofia investigates the many aspect of the Persona in contemporary life: one’s role in society and in the workplace, the affirmation of one’s individuality within society or in a community, as well as one’s desire to stand out and the expression of humans’ most recurrent actions: to love, to hide out, to show yourself, and to live.
DURING THE EVENT, A SPECIAL MENTION IN THE #PERSONA SECTION OF ENNESIMO FILM FESTIVAL WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY A SELECTED PANEL OF JUDGES!
