An event of  MITTELFEST 2008

Cinema is above all a construct of time. As Andrej Tarkovskij put it: cinema is sculpting in time.
A defining feature of the documentary is that the rhythms of cinematic time must be organised in a manner that accommodates the investigation and recording of reality. Each film then becomes a notch cut into time's endless substance, from which a condensed fragment of memory is retrieved.   

Mittelimmagini, dedicated to the visual arts, is a Mittelfest event that arose from collaboration between Associazione Mittelfest, Società Operaia di Mutuo Soccorso ed Istruzione di Cividale and Associazione Navel, with technical and financial support from the Mountain Community of the Torre, Natisone and Collio and in cooperation with Kinoatelje from Gorizia. It presents a series of fifteen documentaries that, to a greater or lesser degree, illustrate the theme of the 2008 festival: “Constructing time”. The theme runs through the nine evenings of this event, although each will examine it from a different point of view. In some the relationship will seem obvious, in others less so, and to ensure that it remains both clear and sustainable, and to maintain thematic coherency, the programme includes both recent documentaries and films produced years or even decades ago.

Entry is free to all films, which will be screened in the open air at Foro Giulio Cesare
In bad weather, screenings will take place in the Sala dei Gessi of the Società Operaia di Mutuo Soccorso, at civico 15 of Foro Giulio Cesare (second floor).
