Welcome to the second edition of Andaras Traveling Film Festival

Our Festival is dedicated to all of those for whom traveling around the world, knowing distant lands and people, is the shortest way to reach oneself. Even if the journey can not be determined by movement alone, by the pure geographic shift from one place to another, because, more than any other human activity, traveling is a mood, a search, a knowledge of oneself and of others, a witness, the starting point of every arrival. Ulysses was traveling, today's migrants are traveling like yesterday's, cruise tourists are traveling and the world is making a living, solitary navigators and NGO volunteers, journalists and writers, photographers and filmmakers who would want to tell the worlds stories.

"Andaras" in the Sardinian language indicates travel, but also the paths that the shepherds used to travel during the long winter transhumance in search of more lush pastures, the same paths that, since the antiquity, were travelled by the miners. And it is in Sardinia, in Fluminimaggiore, a village of mines and shepherds, that the Festival will be held, from 22th to 26th of July, between the sea and the mountains of the coast to the South-West, the most evocative and wild of the island. The Festival will be divided into four days, each of which is dedicated to the screening of the works in competition, to meetings with filmmakers, writers and photographers, good food and good music.

There are four different categories in the competition:

1. the "very short" dedicated to short films both fiction and documentary films with a maximum duration of 180 seconds;
2. the "corti doc" dedicated to non-fiction short films with a maximum duration of 30 minutes;
3. the "corti e via" dedicated to fiction short films with a maximum duration of 20 minutes;
4. the "gazes from the world", dedicated to fiction, experimental and documentary short films, not strictly connected with others categories, with a maximum duration of 15 minutes.

    It's certainly an original and interesting festival. It takes place in a beautiful location and the jury is made up of important people from the film and documentary sector in Italy, so it represents a pretty good opportunity to make your work known. Unfortunately, there was an agreement with the accommodation facilities only for the jury and journalists and not for the authors/filmmakers, that would would be much appreciated (also because the location is placed in a small and isolated little town and there are very few accommodations available in high tourist season). However, it's a festival that will continue to grow and improve, also thanks to the chosen theme, a further guarantee of quality.
