Small Languages DOC
For its 2020 edition, the Bolzano Film Festival Bozen, in collaboration with the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano, will devote a special section to documentaries on linguistic minorities. The section, called “Small Languages DOC”, will host selected works out of competition; screenings will take place during the Festival, between April 21 and 26, 2020, in Bolzano-Bozen (Italy).
Given the peculiarity of the subject, and as an exception to the Festival regulations, works released earlier than 2019 may be submitted; nevertheless, priority for the section “Small Languages DOC” will still be given to most recent works and to films which have never been screened in South Tyrol.
The section will be curated by a team composed of linguists Silvia dal Negro and Daniela Veronesi, and documentarists and geographers Daniele Ietri and Eleonora Mastropietro.
To submit a work to the section, please send – by December 15, 2019 – an email to Daniele Ietri (firstname.lastname@example.org) providing following information:
- title, director, production;
- year and country of production;
- language(s) and available subtitles;
- participation in festivals or other selections, including any screenings in South Tyrol;
- available screening format (file, DCP, other);
- on-line screener, with password.
No application fee is applied; submitted materials will be used for selection purposes only.
All participants will be given notice of selection results by mid-March 2020.
