The Teatro Comunale of Modena, within the frame of Modena Belcanto Festival and in collaboration with the Associazione Circuito Cinema and Sala Truffaut, announces the VOX/IMAGE competition for short films on the theme of Belcanto. The subject of the short videos will be vocality understood not only in a lyrical context but in its broadest sense.


MODENA BELCANTO FESTIVAL

Modena Belcanto Festival is born from Modena Città del Belcanto, an event that in May 2024 will characterize the initiatives promoted as part of a project that the Municipality of Modena, the Modena Foundation, the Modena Municipal Theater Foundation and the Vecchi-Tonelli Conservatory of Music. The four institutions have set up a committee that has been working successfully for seven years to enhance the city's opera tradition and its musical heritage, opening up to many collaborations with other institutions in the area.

From 2024 the program that accompanies and marks these initiatives will take the form of a festival with the aim of enhancing the entertainment, training and research activities, which have already consolidated the tradition of Belcanto in Modena. To these will be added cultural references and different languages: from opera to ancient music through electronics, pop and media arts.
The artistic aspect is accompanied by the tourist attractiveness of the city and its high cultural profile which is now widely established at an international level, with increasingly greater recognition in recent years. The festival was created to broaden the perspective on the valorization of bel canto and vocality in its broadest sense, in the context of the territory, city and regional, of its protagonists and its history. This is associated with innovative aspects such as attention to new creativity, with express reference to Modena UNESCO Creative City.

We are not afraid of being the first entity to provide funding for your project and become the first stepping stone for you to be able to raise further financing, if required.

HOW IT WORKS
Unsolicited Scripts will review all the submissions and select 6 finalists based exclusively on their creative merit.

"The fantastic emerges from reality like the moon over a misty swamp".

The idea of the Festival comes from our passion for Pallars Sobirà, a faraway region in the Pyrenees, for its stories and legends, and for cinema. Our concern for preserving the most mysterious legacy of this territory has grown to finally become the Tabaca Film Fest.

It is indeed a land full of myths and legends, but every corner of the world has its own Yeti, its own mermaid, its own werewolf, its own mountain guardian, in short, its own mythological imaginary.

With the Tabaca Film Fest, we want to recover all these stories from the Pallars, the Pyrenees and elsewhere, through the art we know best, cinema.

We believe that this Festival can bring together several values in which we believe: quality cinema and preservation of the historical-mythological memory, in an incomparable natural setting.

The Tabaca Film Fest - the mythological film Festival of the Pyrenees - is a Festival in which fiction, animation and documentary genres participate in a short-film format, and which consists of an international competition section and complementary activities.

The first edition of the Tabaca Film Fest will be held in Vall de Cardós from the 27th to the 29th of September 2024 in person.

It will consist of an opening ceremony, screenings of the finalist films, and a closing gala with the award ceremony. In parallel, there will also be talks on local mythology, a guided tour of the most mysterious places in the Vall de Cardós, cultural activities and a concert.

When Worlds Meet

Lapinha da Serra is a small district, full of charm, nestled in the Serra do Cipó region. Illustrated not only for its landscapes and waterfalls, but above all for the Lapinhô people, who welcome visitors in a unique way, making the small district of 600 inhabitants one of those unique places that mix tradition and receptivity to novelty.

It is by recognizing this quality of Lapinha that we invite the filmmakers to weave with us the curatorial line of the 2nd CineLapinhô Exhibition around the theme "When Worlds Meet".

Believing both in the power of cinema in connecting world views, and in our responsibility as agents of culture, we seek to bring to Lapinha and its residents, audiovisual experiences that present encounters between worlds: between cultures, times, realities and ideas; real and imaginary encounters, encounters that make new possible worlds emerge, even if ephemerally.
