Terra di Tutti Film Festival began in 2007, with the vital aim of giving a voice to the many documentary makers who use the video medium as a form of critical expression, scrutinising the world and the issues that affect the countries of the southern hemisphere.
Organised by two non-governmental organisations working towards international cooperation for development, WeWorld GVC Onlus and COSPE Onlus, TTFF brings documentaries and social cinema from the global south to Bologna, with the aim of revealing the realities of life in these countries, of people and social battles that are often ‘invisible’ into discussion.
The festival welcomes many types of audiovisual media and short films, with narratives concentrating on the fight for equal rights, gender, protecting freedom, active citizenship, and environmental and ecological concerns.
Terra di Tutti Film Festival would like to provide true visions of the south, without rhetoric, censorship or pity, but instead with the belief that just one individual, with an open mind and a refusal to accept the idea of an immutable reality, can help us to change the present and work together towards better futures.
And we can do this through cinema.
