EIFF 2014: new location and new dates
Thanks to the will of the mayor Egidio Zacheo and of the councilor Davide De Matteis, and thanks to the collaboration with the Città del Libro Foundation, the Ecologico International Film Festival has found “home” in Campi Salentina.
The Festival will be held in conjunction with the Book Fair, from 11 to 14 December in the new headquarters of the Campi Salentina fairgrounds.
Very soon the full program of the event.
EIFF 2014 selection
We are pleased to announce the films selected for the seventh edition of the Ecologico International Film Festival, which will take place at Campi Salentina from 11 to 14 December 2014.
“The festival has still grown, as always in the past 6 years” – said the artistic director Roberto Quarta – “and this is a guarantee for both the public and the artists who continue to find ways to open our minds to the power of story told in pictures. We are once again surprised and encouraged by the rich diversity of voices, characters and locations featured in the films selected for EIFF 2014. The independent filmmakers continue to engage with stories from worlds unknown to most people “.
It was a pleasure to receive more than 600 films from 75 countries. All these, however, will be part of our archive.
This year, 52 films were selected, representing 31 countries, and we found the selection process even more challenging and rewarding than ever and it was a real struggle to limit the number of works that ended up to shape our program: many movies were good, sometimes very good, but someone had to be left out because inevitably, in the four days of the Festival, we are forced to screen a small number of works.
The 2014 official program will be communicated shortly on our website.
