The subject of the 6th Edition of the FestArte Video art Festival is HUMAN RIGHTS, RACISM, and AND GLOBAL IMMIGRATION.
Considering that human birth is the same for everyone and a right of everyone, and that today we could define all the human beings as mental or physical migrants, it is intended to range over on the themes of EQUALITY- DIVERSITY – FREEDOM, in order to propose an evolution in the relationship founded on equality between men and women and diversity as a treasure, to propose a glance capable to dealing with diversity as reality positively problematic, harbinger of a possible human development. Because colors, perfumes, culture, customs do not destroy. The cold reason that dominates – kills all. We want to open emotional gates able to write a new glossary of visions. Not numbers, commemorations of death and not only with a public that is already sensitive, but life, answers, and culture for all. Artistic Director, Lorena Benatti
