As GVC, we are convinced that international cooperation needs an educational and awareness work in Italy and Europe in order to develop critical thinking in the “First World”. To challenge stereotypes and give people not just the information but also the skills and trust needed to support the change towards a fairer and sustainable world.
This is why since 2007 we organise the Terra di Tutti Film festival in Bologna. A social cinema festival, aiming to give visibility to countries, communities and social struggles that are often “invisible”, and speak out against violations of human rights.
The festival is open to audio-visual documentaries and works of different type and format that have at the core of their theme the promotion of rights and gender equality, the pursuit of freedom, active citizenship, environmental and ecological awareness.
Terra di Tutti Film festival wants to offer visions from the “south” (wherever it may be) without rhetoric, censorship or pietism, but with the underlining idea that only a lucid, reactive and unresigned look at the reality that surrounds us can lead to change the present and reinvent the future. Especially through cinema.
