Created in 1973, Asolo Art Film Festival is the oldest festival dedicated to art films.
Conceived as a detachment of the Venice Biennale on the impulse of critics and essayist Flavia Paulon and sponsored at the time by UNESCO as an international model of correlation between cinema and visual arts, is pleased to present its 38th edition under the prestigious artistic direction of Cosimo Terlizzi, appreciated and eclectic poet of visual languages.
