Piccole Lingue DOC
The Bolzano Film Festival Bozen, in collaboration with the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano and the Association La Fournaise, dedicates a special section to films on linguistic minorities for the fourth year.
The Piccole Lingue DOC section brings together works (documentary forms/fiction/hybrid) of any length that deal with issues related to linguistic minorities, i.e. populations that speak a language different from that of the majority.
These will be works in which minority languages are present and spoken, and/or which tell stories that highlight territorial, social and cultural issues associated with minority language speaking communities.We accept film proposals from every region of the world!
The section thus aims to address a theme central to many works that speak of local identities, territorial differences, linguistic and cultural affiliations.The selected films will be screened out of competition during the Festival days.
The section will be curated by linguists Silvia dal Negro and Daniela Veronesi (Free University of Bozen/Bolzano) and documentary filmmakers and geographers Daniele Ietri (La Fournaise Association) and Eleonora Mastropietro (La Fournaise Association), together with Vincenzo Bugno, artistic director of BFFB.
On the dedicated page Filmfreeway – Piccole Lingue DOC it is possible to register films.
The complete call for entries with all information and entry requirements can be downloaded here.
Deadline for film entry: 31 December 2023.
