Cinematica is an international festival that deals specifically with the image-movement relationship in the visual and performing arts.
The festival, along with the programme that includes video and film screenings, performances, exhibitions, installations and laboratories, wants to convey new trends in audiovisual and performance experimentations, with a strong focus on bodily and perceptual root. The underlying theme of the sixth edition (end-march in the adriatic seaport town of Ancona-IT) is 'BODY/CITY/LANDSCAPE', suggesting a creative reflection on corporeality in relationship to urban spaces and natural or cultural landscape. We are interested in cinematic reflection on how much and in what sense natural and architectural spaces influence and determine humanity, bodies and the sense of identity. On this theme we collect video dance film for the 2019 edition of the Festival.
