IntimaLente Festival is intended to promote documentary cinema with particular attention to anthropological topics and methodologies. The international character of the festival is both desirable and unavoidable because of the specific character of the discipline and of the medium of film itself. In this inaugural round, we have chosen not to focus on specialist themes but instead to offer an array of work representing different filmic idioms and geographical areas of interest. The aim is to offer both professional and non-professional viewers a broad (if necessarily incomplete) spectrum of possibilities. We believe that this choice not only will trigger a wide exchange of ideas and themes but will also generate an extensive collaborative perspective. We have made it a core principle to select topics of general interest exhibiting both thematic diversity and relevance to the interests of non-specialist viewers. We have rejected mere exoticism as outdated and unnecessary and have aimed at a selection that, via the intimacy of the camera’s lens, extends the local and the particular to a perspective that is truly contemporary and global.

Filmmakers/photographers will be awarded during the closing night of the Festival (or to people delegated to receive them).

IntimaLente (IL) is a cultural event that tends to promote cinema and visual culture in its own way, to this end the event is present in a competitive rather than a non-competitive section.

If he proposes to divert the voice of documentary cinema towards an ethnographic vocation, he will not disdain, in the future, to create a section dedicated to long and short films.

Alongside any creative retrospectives on cinema tout court, the festival opens two competitive sections intended exclusively for the image.

The other look: video contest, video art, documentary, short film and film with a predominantly ethno-anthropological slogan (if they have agreed to work without limits of duration and production in the last five years, but if they prefer recently produced short films).

I-Doc: competition dedicated to interactive documentation.

The organization may decide to extend, modify or suspend sessions after receipt of the material.

It will host a series of initiatives aimed at creating a heritage for the public and the different cinematic reality spread throughout the country and beyond. There will be a space where out-of-competition visions, presentations of events and film initiatives, meetings and debates with paternities and professionals in the sector will be hosted. They will support the initiative of organizations, schools, cultural associations or other realities that want to provide their own film production. Anyone wishing to submit their proposal to take advantage of this space can write
