In fact, this year, the internationally renowned "Luci della ribalta" Festival (over 20 internationally renowned teachers and about 150 students from all over the world) has decided to open up to dance, cinema and theater.
For this purpose, the section dedicated to cinema, "Luci Della Ribalta Film Fest", aims to enhance independent filmmaking, privileging young authors, new languages and, in a particular way, the fusion of different arts especially cinema and music.
Without forgetting the musical nature of the Festival, a section dedicated to music video clips has been created, as well as the special Renato Chiesa "Music and Pictures Award", dedicated to the late composer who passed away before his time. Narni's connection with fantasy genre also inspired the creation of the "Short Fantasy" section.
The International Festival "Luci Della Ribalta" will take place from August 11th to 28th in the beautiful setting of the medieval town of Narni (TR) in Umbria. This festival has been realized in collaboration with the Municipality of Narni and the Carit Foundation, and is sponsored by the Region of Umbria, the province of Terni, the municipalities of Terni and Sangemini, the Terni Chamber of Commerce, the Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg and Forum for Austrian culture,
The festival will feature a large variety of musical, theatrical, cinematographic and dance events. In addition, like every year, there will be a section dedicated to masterclasses.
The final evening, including the award ceremony and projection of the finalist short films and video clips, will be on August 26, 2017.
