After the success of the first edition in 2015, we are very glad to present the 2016 edition of Visioni Urbane | Urban Visions. Beyond the ideal city, an Italian competition for short films entirely dedicated to the investigation of the contemporary city. Visioni Urbane is a section of the 22 edition of Visioni Italiane/Italian Visions Festival, a well-known Italian film competition promoted by Cineteca di Bologna, a prime centre known globally for film studies, film archives and film restoration.
The Festival will open on Wednesday February 24: 5 days for more than 70 films, more than 50 film-makers, meetings and master classes with directors and actors of the Italian film industry.

The full program of the Festival is available at this link:

Visioni Urbane is the first film competition in the Italian context involving film-makers at a professional level on topics related to cities and urbanity, so it is a unique platform able to foster interaction and exchange between different disciplines, such as architecture, sociological studies, urban design and film studies, while delivering to spectators insights and meanings on daily urban life in cities.
