Performing Arts Film Festival
Milan, Italy


My piece Dialoge I-IV will be shown on Thursday in the program "Sections Italia + Going East". It is traveling to Espressioni with the special selection of the Varna Filmfestival where I have shown the piece last summer.

Espressioni Video Festival was founded in 2006 by a group of film enthusiasts and professionals with the goal of creating an annual international film festival in Milan. The aim is to establish a major film event to enrich and enliven the local film culture, but moreover, to become an international attraction. We believe that by building up an innovative film festival in Milan, our foreign guests will have a unique opportunity to participate in an exciting cultural event, as well as visiting a city renowned for its dynamic culture.

The Espressioni Video Festival is organised by Perypezye Urbane. It is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the distribution and appreciation of European films in Italy. This Milan-based festival showcases the variety of Italian experimental cinema each year.

Festival selections range from documentary on performing arts to experimental films and videos. The Festival calls attention to the importance of preserving Europe’s film heritage, creating a network with other festivals and displaying films designed to stress the lively cultural climate within European audiovisual production.

Espressioni Film Festival in this 2011 edition has created a network with Italian and European organizations, bringing new artistic works from centre-East and West Europe. Milan also becomes the place to distrubute some of the most interesting videos by Coreografo Elettronico, the main video-dance prize within Italian bounderies.

By following a geo-politics approach, Espressioni Film Festival presents the “Going East” section with the films from East Europe, from Israel and Taiwan, the “Going West” section with the films from West Europe and America. The section Italy is spread in two days with Italian authors. In addition two important events will be held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th: the screeing of the four videos prizewinners of the 2010 edition Coreografo Elettronico on Saturday; on the same Sunday night the screening of “Scuola d’artisti” by Massimo Volta about the most famous ballet Academy of the world and of the docu trailer dedicated to ballet dancer Valter Venditti.

Thursday 3 february – Sections Italia + Going East
Venerdì 4 febbraio – Italia + Going west
Saturday 5 february – Il Coreografo Elettronico 2010
Sunday 6 February – Documentaries


The concept of “itinerant” aims to share the film heritage, specifically in Italy, from the Northern to the Southern part of the country, creating an ideal creative link within the Italian territory. Then the festival heads straight for Europe, to set off to the opposite part of the world, Brazil, in order to push the territorial boundaries and embrace an international cooperation. This network is intended to serve as a way of building bridges without frontiers and to foster true artistic exchange and production.

The festival will travel to:

Siena – Rome – Bari – Catania (Italy), Nis-Sombor (Serbia), Podgorica (Montenegro), Varna (Bulgaria), Izmir (Turkey) and Praia de Iraçema (Brazil)
