Many high quality short films arrived for the CortoEuropa competition. In order to give these works the right visibility Linea D’Ombra Festival has added a new competition section for the 2018, dedicated to animated short films.
The festival presents events related to contemporary creativity.
The festival’s public is composed by men and women, young and less young, that still have the curiosity to seek and to surprise themselves.
The festival owes its name to Conrad’s novel, but ‘The Shadow-Line’ that we’re referring to is a typical condition of our modernity, in a constant transition from one world to another, from one era to another, without time for nostalgia. Perhaps/Maybe.
