Fair_Play Film Festival

Uploaded on Monday 1 January 2007


The aim of the festival is not just the mere screening of works, but most importantly, the joining of people who contribute to the festival, allowing time for dialogue, stimulating interconnections and cultural exchange as well as triggering debates on art and film matters, thus creating a dynamic platform for future projects. Correct environment is essential in order to gain easy access to principal and side events, and to have them concentrated within nearby areas; small cities are far less dispersive than big ones and therefore better suit the award’s multi-faced program which will easily create interest amongst the public. Screening facilities play an important role due to the award’s very specific character, always on the cutting edge between film and visual contemporary art, “debating” on context issues related to “presentation places”.
When Cinema Lux in Lugano first offered me the opportunity to host the festival in its halls, I have been immediately attracted by this very particular and quite renown cinema, both for its cultural program and its architecture, which I believe is the perfect location context to convey Fair_Play’s concept.
