Concorto Film Festival Returns to Pontenure

Anna Frattini

We are in the midst of the Concorto Film Festival, a unique opportunity for cinema lovers that will last until August 26th in a special location: the Raggio Park in Pontenure, in the province of Piacenza. Every evening, starting at 9:00 PM, the programming begins, and the Festival offers a journey of colors, birth, and rebirth.

“Concorto Film Festival is a moment of cultural diffusion made available to our region, to all those who love new, innovative, multicultural cinema. It’s a gathering opportunity especially for the new generations that seek non-trivial entertainment, which can provide insights into the reality that surrounds us. Concorto is also an example of a truly participated and shared cultural event, a special opportunity for girls and boys to participate every year in the realization of an international festival and to get to know young female authors and male authors who come from all over the world,” says Claudia Praolini, artistic co-director of the Festival.

Among the films in competition, three award-winning short films from this year will be presented, recognized as the best in their category at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world, including “27” by Flora Anna Buda, Palme d’Or at Cannes, “Les Chenilles” by Michelle and Noel Keserwany, Golden Bear at the Berlinale, and “The Kidnapping Of A Bride” by Sophia Mocorrea, the winning short film at the Sundance Film Festival. There’s also “Night Shift,” directed by Kayije Kagame, a winning film in the latest edition of the Grand Jury Prize in Venice, “Wild Summon” featuring the narrating voice of Marianne Faithfull, the legendary English singer-songwriter and actress, “Bolero” by Nans Laborde-Jourdàa, winner of the Critics’ Week at the latest Cannes edition, and also “Snow In September” by Lkhagvadulam Purev-Ochir, awarded the Golden Lion for best short film in the “Horizons” category at Venice 2022.

The complete program is available on the Concorto Film Festival website, and for purchasing tickets, here is the Eventbrite link.
