An itinerant and independent cinema festival,
both on the road and borderline
Errant images, displacements and psycho-geographical drifts
“A path is always between two points, but the in-between has taken on all the consistency
and enjoys both an autonomy and a direction of its own”
G. Deleuze, F. Guattari, 1987
On the Road Film Festival, an “on the road” and “cross-border” independent film festival, has reached its fourth edition as an itinerant project presented at a variety of venues across Rome and Lazio, devoted to independent cinema and visual arts, both domestic and international, inspired by journeys and borderlands.
The Festival traces an harmonious path for the International Independent Cinema with previews and unpublished works. We look for films that develop, through linguistic and/or narrative skills, a critical and inventive approach to the subject guidelines of the Festival: a traveling mood with digressions from fixed paths, where the route is what matters, not the destination.
This fourth edition wants to emphasise what a journey leaves us with: traces, memories, encounters. It intends to focus on the necessity of the journey as an experience of contact, of bridging boundaries, of interrelation with another person.
▸WHERE & WHEN
Competitive sections screenings will take place from October 23rd to October 29th 2016 at the Detour Cinema in Rome.
The awards ceremony will be held Saturday, October 29, 2016.
