5° edition of traveling film festival

11/15 July 2023
Fluminimaggiore – Buggerru – Iglesias 


Welcome to the fifth edition of Andaras Traveling Film Festival, dedicated to travels, new beginnings, and the discovery of the world and the self.

TRAVELING LIGHT is the title of this new chapter of our festival, dedicated to all those who find traveling around the world and getting to know distant lands and peoples the shortest way to reach oneselves. More than any other human activity, traveling is a state of mind, research, self-awareness, knowledge of others, testimony, the starting point of each arrival.

In the Sardinian language, "Andaras" indicates traveling, but also the paths that shepherds followed during the long winter transhumance in search of lusher pastures, the same paths that miners have also traveled since ancient times. And it is in Sardinia, in Fluminimaggiore and Buggerru, villages of mines, shepherds and fishermen, that the Festival will be held, from 11th to 15th of July, between the sea and the mountains of the Costa delle Miniere, the wildest and most evocative of the island.

The Festival will be divided into five days, each of which is dedicated to the screening of the works in competition, the meetings with filmmakers, writers and photographers, and the discovery of the territory, good food and good music.

With the theme of this fifth edition, “Traveling Light”, we are searching for a new way of looking at the world, stories of hope, rebirth, discovery and education.
