Ortometraggi Film Festival is a film festival of shorts films (documentaries, animation, fiction) with the aim to sensitize the public about issues related to environment, food, sustainability and today’s relationship between people and nature.
Ortometraggi Film Festival will be held in Borgagne, a characteristic village located in the province of Lecce, between olive trees and the Adriatic coast.
The festival is the outcome of collaboration with the ‘Ngracalati cultural association, which shares our values and objectives. Ortometraggi Film Festival will take place within the eco-festival Borgoinfesta, an eco-friendly and plastic-free event organized by ‘Ngracalati under the banner of environmental sustainability and humanitarian solidarity.
The two festivals are intertwined to create a memorable event that inaugurates the summer season in Salento, where arts meet with each other and music, photography, exhibitions and artistic shows are crowned by the cinema experience with the vision of the selected short films and a lot of typical products to taste.
