October 1, 2020 @ 08:00 - February 10, 2021 @ 17:00 UTC+1

Castello Errante (Moving Castle):

the first International Cinema Residence in Italy

A unique format in the world that involves Italy and Latin America in an international exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences through audiovisual languages.

The fourth edition is underway and this year will be presented in hybrid form: the online part in November 2020 and the onsite part in February 2021

In November 2020, the fourth edition of Castello Errante will start, the first international film residency involving Latin America and Italy.

Castello Errante is an innovative format that combines training and production in the audiovisual field: a project that sees, in cooperation and multiculturalism, a great learning opportunity and, in the use of the tools of the digital age, an interesting opportunity to development of new ideas of an international character.

Castello Errante will bring the international excellence of cinema back to Italy: a selected group of under 35 students, coming from the most important Italian and Latin American Film Schools, will form a specialized crew that will participate in training and production courses, in a process of knowledge, discovery and enhancement of the territory.

In this edition the theoretical training and the development and pre-production works of the project will be carried out online in November 2020, while in February 2021 the work will begin with the arrival in Italy of the troupe who will carry out two audiovisual projects, a short documentary and short fiction, and some commercials related to the enhancement of the riches of the Italian heritage. The young age of the participants is a fundamental factor for the contextualization of current issues which – analyzed by contemporary cinema – make us reflect on the present and acquire awareness for the future.

A unique and innovative format

An innovative format never created before that creates a historical and cultural link between Latin America and Italy and that promotes diversity, new expressive languages ​​and cinematographic and audiovisual heritage, in the name of research and international exchange, training and production in the audiovisual field, triggering processes of awareness, enhancement of the territory and growth.

Since its first edition Castello Errante has stood out for its unique format in the world: every year, an Italian village, which differs for its cultural and landscape heritage, hosts about 20 students from the cinema sector within its municipality. from Italy and the countries of Latin America, which have as their final aim the creation of various audiovisual products. These products have as their engine the enhancement of all those aspects that the host territory possesses, in architectural, artistic, landscape, historical and cultural terms. This creates a virtuous circle that promotes the audiovisual as a means of promotion and growth, discovery and exchange.

In this way, Castello Errante promotes the image of Italy abroad through the medium of cinema: thanks to this innovative formula and the promotion of the audiovisual products created, our country travels all over the world in international festivals and events. .

The theme of the fourth edition

Each year Castello Errante chooses a theme on which to direct the work of the participants. After having dealt with the theme of “food” and the “border” in the past editions, for 2020 “magical thinking” will be the file-rouge of the whole event. The power of magic lies in transforming and cinema is magic because it gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our tenacity and cultivate our dreams, in an alternative way, drawing on creativity and transforming our “I” into “us”.
