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 organisations working towards international cooperation for development, WEWORLD 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.
The 2020 Edition will give visibility and pay special attention to the following topics: human rights, intercultural dialogue, humanitarian emergencies, environmental sustainability, food sovereignty, alternative economies and migration, children’s rights and gender issues.
Specifically, priority subjects of the Festival will be:
• Fight against poverty
• Sustainable development
• Participatory processes
• Social conflicts and traditional ecological knowledge
• Climate change and renewable energies
• Food sovereignty, peasant agriculture, sustainable rural development, land-grabbing
• Water as a common good and water-grabbing
• Valorization of natural resources and forests
• Social and fair trade economy
• Migration, human trafficking, peace and human rights, new citizenships
• Access to health, prevention and fight against AIDS, management of health emergencies
• Gender, LGBTQ+ culture, fight against discriminations.
