Independent international productions never before screened in Italy. Documentary films in which the inquisitive and attentive gaze of the director delves without hesitation into the heart of reality, proving capable of grasping and synthesising the visible and the invisible, narrating a theme, a place, a character in “close-ups”, with intensity and participation.
Mia Hansen-Løve and João Nicolau are the protagonists of Europe, Now!, the Bergamo Film Meeting section dedicated to contemporary European filmmakers.
Izabela Plucińska is the protagonist of the section dedicated to auteur animation cinema. The complete works of the award-winning and talented Polish animator will be presented as a European preview: 14 films, made in Claymation – i.e. stop motion with plasticine, a material that Plucińska has always masterfully used -, where everyday life and dreamscapes alternate in a surprising way.
Una sezione variegata e ricca di sorprese, che va ad ampliare la proposta che Il Festival offre al suo pubblico. Eventi speciali, anteprime, classici e percorsi realizzati in collaborazione con altri enti e istituzioni con cui il BFM lavora da molti anni.
Volker Schlöndorff chosen as the protagonist of the Bergamo Film Meeting 39th edition’s retrospective.
The BFM 39 retrospective
The second homage of BFM 39, which includes 6 films, is dedicated to Jerzy Skolimowski, Polish director, screenwriter and film actor, one of the most important representatives of Eastern European cinema and author of a free and innovative film style.
With a tribute consisting of 5 films restored by the National Film Institute – Film Archive – Hungary, Bergamo Film Meeting pays homage to the innovative gaze of Hungarian director Márta Mészáros who, though her militant filmmaking, has given voice to strong and complex women portraying the reality and historical memory of his country.
Born from the collaboration between the Festival and The Blank Contemporary Art, its purpose is to highlight the intersections between the universes of cinema and visual arts.
