Aqua Film Festival 2021
The most precious commodity we have, water, is the star of a dedicated event, which will take place in Rome from 25 to 27 March 2021. This is the Aqua Film Festival, an international festival now in its fifth edition, which aims to represent, through the medium of film and documentation, the extraordinary world of water in its various values and functions of use, to discover new talents in film and in the audiovisual field. The screenings of the festival, organised by the non-profit cultural association Universi Aqua, will be held, free of charge, on the MyMovies.it international platform, while the awards evening (still to be decided whether or not before an audience) will be held in streaming at the Casa del Cinema in Rome.
The list of competing films, documentaries, short films (up to 25 minutes) and mini short films (up to 3 minutes), by Italian and international directors, as always is very long and varied. M(o)ai più plastica, by Dario Carotenuto and Dario Catania, for example, is a short documentary that recounts the damage caused by mass tourism to a much-loved destination, Easter Island, which is now invaded by plastics and microplastics. Two animated shorts are also worth mentioning: the Australian entry, Lost & Found, by Andrew Goldsmith and Bradley Slabe, where a clumsy crocheted dinosaur has to completely unravel in order to save the love of his life; and the Italian entry, Blu, by Paolo Geremei, a delicate tale about autism.
