BABEL FILM FESTIVAL
The Babel Short Film Festival gives an authentic taste by bringing together stories told in mother tongues, reflecting the Biblical myth that had inspired this event’s namesake.
All the way from Cagliari, the Babel Short Film Festival is a compilation of cinematic works that are written and spoken in minority languages, dialects, slang and sign language. The subtitled stories promise to be a journey across undiscovered cultures, and will be held at the Splash & Fun Park in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq on the 5th August at 8.30pm.
The programme includes films from Italy, Turkey, Congo, Norway, Spain, the UK, Mali, the USA, Sweden, Canada and many more. The films’ resonant theme is Dialogue, a fundamental tool for the development of relations between people, countries and cultures.
Thanks to its contemporary and current nature, the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, has sent a congratulatory message to the festival organisers. Antonello Zanda, artistic director of the festival said, “The hallmark of the Babel Short Film Festival is that the languages are different, but you can still talk to each other.”
The Babel Short Film Festival allows you to have a drink at a sea-side venue as a diverse programme of short films unfolds in front of you. During the event, the audience will be given the opportunity to vote for the best film.
The entrance fee is €15 and includes a welcome drink, canapés and free popcorn. For bookings, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here for more event details.
