"The only true realist is the visionary." (Federico Fellini)

FLIGHT - Mostra del Cinema di Genova is an event created by Cesare Bedogné and Sasha Balagura devoted to cinema as an art form.we will privilege, in our selection, films with a poetic or visionary value, experimental and thought provoking films, avant-garde works and innovative languages. Equal importance will be given to fiction and non-fiction works, to features and shorts, and the festival’s Grand Prix, dedicated to Eadweard Muybridge (Grand Prix Pigeon Flying, 2500 € cash prize) will be assigned to the Best Film, regardless of genre, duration and theme.
A one-of-a-kind work of art, created by an outstanding Italian artist and inspired by Muybridge’s Pigeon Flying, will also be given to the Grand Prix winner.
Ample attention will be devoted also to films out of competition, which will be hosted in the new Visioni Flight section.

No other place appears to us more suitable for our Festival than the city of Genoa, with its port and its contrasts, with its dazzling lights and the darkness of the old town, with a thousand languages and its dialect, its innumerable departures and returns.

The Festival is organized by the non profit cultural association, Associazione Culturale 28 Dicembre

- Grand Prix €2500 plus original work of art created by Italian artist

- Category Certificate Awards to Best Feature Film, Best Short Film, Best Animation Film, Best VideoArt Work
