INDEPENDENT CINEMA IN THE HEART OF MEDIEVAL ITALY

The Cultural Association Aedon is pleased to present the 3rd Festival dei Lumi, an arts festival that takes place annually in Soriano nel Cimino, in the heart of the Cimini mountains, in the province of Viterbo.

A PLACE FULL OF HISTORY, LOVED BY ARTISTS

A place steeped in history, which belonged to the greatest families of the Italian papal aristocracy (Orsini, Colonna, Albani), it retains a strong tradition and in its recent history was the creative residence of world-famous Italian artists such as PierPaolo Pasolini, who lived in the of Chia, or Luigi Pirandello who also dedicated a poem to the beech forest of Soriano nel Cimino, from which he was greatly entranced.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOUR ART

Festival dei Lumi aims to propose independent Italian and international cinema to the Soriano audience.
We are looking for spontaneous films, created by artists who have the courage to use their intelligence and put their essence into their work. We are looking for sincere works, we don't care about the budget, the genre, the nation, the medium used for filming.
We are looking for artists who care about their work, who love the creative process and who don't make art out of vanity.

    Although I wasn't able to attend in person, I felt very honoured to have my short film "Kiss me like the moon" screened during the festival and for receiving the Best School Film award! I hope to see this festival grow in the future!
