The cultural association The Screen of the Arts, founded in Florence in 2007, brings together under a single brand a coherent yet diversified group of activities and initiatives that include planning, production and presentation, and centre on the relations and the crossover in dialogue between cinema and contemporary art.
The cultural association organizes The Screen of the Arts – International Programme of Films on Contemporary Arts, which forms part of the 50 Days of International Cinema in Florence, cycle organized by the Mediateca Regionale Toscana Film Commission in partnership with the Regione Toscana and Comune di Firenze. The programme includes films focusing on the work of some of today’s leading exponents of the visual and performing arts, the aim being to present an overview of the wealth of experiences comprising the multi-faceted panorama of contemporary artistic creation. The films, screened in the original version with subtitles in Italian, come from a dense network of international contacts, independent producers, museums, archives, cultural bodies and film distributors. The programme also features sessions with artists, directors and film producers, offering a unique opportunity to learn more about contemporary reality.
