Bergamo Film Meeting has still many surprises in store: events, previews and educational offers created in collaboration with other institutions and long-time partners of the festival.
Of particular importance are the partnerships, confirmed once again for the upcoming edition, with GAMeC – Modern and Contemporary Arts Gallery (Bergamo), the Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti (Milan) and The Blank Contemporary Art.
On the occasion of the exhibition Tiziano and Caravaggio in Peterzano, curated by Accademia Carrara, there will be a screening of the feature film Caravaggio, l’ultimo tempo (2004) by Mario Martone: a visual journey in which the crude reality of today’s Naples is juxtaposed with glimpses of the landscapes and imagery of Caravaggio’s paintings. A heartfelt tribute to Naples and to the artist who lived there in the early 17th century.
New, on the other hand, is the collaboration with the Orlando – Identità, relazioni, possibilità festival, presenting in Bergamo the film Cassandro, the Exotico! (2018) by Marie Losier; a tale of struggle, suffering but also of victory, recounting, with great tenderness and empathy, the life of the greatest and openly gay Mexican wrestler.
Also new is the collaboration with BAD (Bergamo Animation Days), the animation film event organised in Bergamo by ForFunMedia.
