“Move! Do something: People and Places that are changing the world” - Farm Film Festival - International Festival of short films is aimed at producing short films capable of telling, with umpredictable language,exciting and engaging" stories of change ".
Move! Do somenthing: "shake it up","get moving" (in Italian datti una mossa) is an incitement to activism, to the desire to play a leading role in beautiful stories of lasting and sustainable territorial development, including the creation of independent cultural centers such as the Farm Cultural Park.
Our goal is not only to raise awareness of those people and places that are rethinking our future, but also to promote proactive behavior against the transformation of our society. Places/Dates
