Sognielettrici | Electricdreams International Film Festival is dedicated to speculative fiction in every form and meaning - sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural.
The festival aims at investigating the concept of imagination – not only seen as a form of pure entertainment, but also and foremost as a tool for analysing everyday life from unexpected perspectives.
The festival focuses on cinema, but it also embraces literature, comics, video games, seriality and it is open to contamination with new media, philosophy, science, technology. Screenings and meetings are with free admission.
