The masterclass, conducted by Laura Cesaro, proposes a historical examination to reconstruct the change in sensitivity in the dialogue between cinema and environmental issues and, finally, to propose a focus on the Italian situation: recent legislation has led to the signing of the “Guide to Green Festivals” (2022), a protocol that fully involves the Italian festival dimension on the anthropocentric impact at all times (organisation, promotion and communication, realisation and post-event activities both in socio-economic and tourism-cultural terms) in particular through experimentation in terms of visual perspectives linked to the mapping of the territory.

Some emblematic cases will also be analysed, including the Euganea Film Festival, one of the festivals promoting this line of action.
