Lovers, Visioni LGBTQI con DAMS, IAAD e Vittoria

Lovers, the LGBTQI film festival of Turin begins today. This year, the edition of the festival will be devoted to Marielle Franco, city councillor of the Municipal Chamber of Rio de Janeiro and human rights activist, who had been killed the 15th March. This is a tribute that recalls “Oh rights!”, the claim of the demonstration. Love and rights, different kinds of love and law: all these elements are linked together in a society which aims to become more and more inclusive and to listen to different voices, not only the most eminent ones but also the youngest ones. For these reasons, Lovers renews its partnership with the University of Turin and some other Institutes of the area, like Vittoria, High School for Language Mediators and IAAD, Institute of Applied Art and Design.

Students from  DAMS, under the leading of Massimiliano Quirico, will become a fully-fledged international jury. The section Future Lovers will award the winner with the prize Fotogrammi Sovversivi (Insurgent Frames). The partnership with the DAMS will continue with Serial Lovers (by Elisa Cuter)., a workshop devoted to the history of TV series. With less restrictions and different uses of the narration, the TV has been competing for a long time with the cinema, as regards the representation of the LGBTQI identity. From its origin (QueerasFolks, Will & Grace), to the new productions and queer themes(Sense8, Transparent), up to the self production on the Web (G&T, Re(l)azioni a catena), together with critics, experts and film directors.

Also the IAAD gave an important contribution to the festival! We are talking about the guiding image, realised by students from the 2nd year of the Department of Communication Design, leaded by Giorgio Calandri, professor for Art Direction. Translations and subtitles will be entrusted to another institute of excellence of the city, the Vittoria, which will allow its students to cooperate on the festival from behind the scenes.

Enjoy the festival!
