Live Cinema Festival is an exhibition of live performances that explores and promotes all the artistic tendencies attributed to "Live Cinema", with performances by Italian, German, English, Dutch, Polish and Belorussian artists, who have made this technique of narration their stylistic code.
“Live Cinema” means an experimental narrative technique, applied to performative video, which gives rise to the simultaneous creation of sound and images in real time, in which the traditional standards of narrative cinema, represented by the subjectivity of the camera, is expanded into a broader conception.
“Cinema” is understood as the act of simultaneously creating images and sounds that interact with each other and take shape in a synaesthetic approach that results in audio-visual performance realized in real-time, in which the viewer’s perception is in constant tension between experimentation and re-enactment.
The performances proposed in this first edition of Live Cinema Festival tend to explore issues related to social and new media, as well as to more introspective concepts emerging on the screen in a new light, enriched by new languages and new meanings.
Live Cinema Festival has been selected as a project of the "Roman Summer 2014" funded by the municipality of Rome which, through the performances of 8 artists, aims to exploit one of the suburban areas of the city, thanks to a program that combines emerging and well-known artists, could become a new center of cultural aggregation.
Live Cinema Festival is a cultural and artistic project, promoted byFlyer communication in co-production with LPM – Live Performers Meeting, FLxER.net, Linux Club, Free Hardware Foundation and Improvearts in collaboration with SIAE ed ACEA with the support of Comune di Roma and approved by AVnode.
