ANDARAS Traveling Film Festival 2021 - Check out the finalists.

Although in the last year it has been difficult for everyone to move, the desire to tell the journey has not been lacking and we have received short films from over 90 countries around the world: environmental and human sustainability, outdoor life, extreme sports, hospitality and integration, are just some of the themes present in the works in competition.The difficulties given by the emergency have not appeased our thirst for cinema, the desire to travel far away and to set off for a new adventure. Therefore we are ready to restart, because from 20 to 25 July in Fluminimaggiore and Buggerru, small realities of the Costa delle Miniere nestled between sea and mountains, there will be the third edition of ANDARAS, the film festival dedicated to travel and to those who never stop chasing the horizon. The event will take place in safety and in compliance with ministerial directives, without forgetting the spirit of union and sharing that has always distinguished us. The third edition will be full with emotions and more: filmmakers, artists, actors, photographers, workshops, exhibitions, interviews, culture, and all that good food, good wine and a wild territory can offer.A separate chapter, in fact, will be reserved for the theme of food, food sustainability and slow travel. The collaboration with Slow Food was born from the need to tell these salient aspects of contemporaneity. Thanks to this synergy, two new competition categories were born related to the world of food and its surroundings, and the 2021 edition of Andaras took the name: "all the taste of travel".Not enough for you? Pack your bags and follow us, many more news soon!
