Documentaristica culturale ed ambientale

In occasione della III Edizione del Big Blu – Rome Sea Expo, Sviluppo Lazio ha ospitato una delegazione internazionale proveniente dall’Europa e dagli Emirati Arabi Uniti rappresentativa dell’industria dell’Audiovisivo, in particolare della documentaristica culturale ed ambientale.


Pelagos – Festival Internazionale del Mare ha rappresentato l’isola culturale all’interno del Big Blu ed una occasione di incontro tra realtà internazionali di diversa provenienza.

Presso il Meeting Point della Regione Lazio / Sviluppo Lazio (Pad.2), nella mattina di venerdì 27 febbraio si è svolto il Workshop dal titolo Cooperazione Internazionale. Proposte e progetti di partnership per i prodotti della documentaristica ambientale e culturale – con l’obiettivo di scambiare “esperienze” sull’universo marino e sull’ambiente in genere, coinvolgendo nel panel dei relatori speaker nazionali ed internazionali – e, a seguire, la sessione di B2B finalizzata a favorire l’incontro tra la domanda e l’offerta di prodotti documentaristici, tecnologie, piattaforme distributive e più in generale, dei diversi contenuti digitali tra gli operatori laziali, italiani e quelli internazionali.

The Scene Club

The Scene Club’ is UAE’s first official film club and an initiative between Dubai International Film Festival and D-Seven Motion Pictures. Its goal is to provide a monthly platform for the film industry to come together and celebrate independent films. The club is the brainchild of Nayla Al Khaja, a well-known UAE National filmmaker. Her previous work has included the acclaimed short film ‘Arabana’. After presenting the idea of a film club to DIFF, the festival endorsed the initiative and Nayla now hosts the monthly event with management support from the D-Seven team. To make sure that the club develops positively, the goal is to build a positive and forward-thinking relationship with DIFF, guests, the media and sponsors in order to enhance the growth of the club. Described as ‘Your UAE Film Network’, ‘The Scene Club’ under the patronage of Dubai International Film Festival also proudly partners with Al Qasba and Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
