"At the borders of the Mediterranean Sea"
Images and stories from the Mediterranean Sea
International Short Film Exhibition – II Edition

Salerno, 24-25-26 May 2019
ABSTRACT

Med-Limes "At the borders of the Mediterranean Sea", Images and Stories of the borders of the Mediterranean Sea is an International Short Film Festival promoted by FONMED – “Fondazione Sud per la Cooperazione e lo Sviluppo nel Mediterraneo” - which will take place in Salerno from 24 to 26 May 2019.

Med-Limes "at the borders of the Mediterranean Sea" focuses on hot topics of our era. The drama of immigration, the scarcity of water resources and food products, to meet the needs of millions of individuals, the discrimination against other cultures are the themes and contents on which are based the film productions invited to participate in the event.

The themes of the Short Film Exhibition are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that were designed by the United Nations as part of a sustainable development program destined to improve the life of all the people of the planet in a universal, inclusive and indivisible way.

We decided upon the format of the independent short film because it seemed more suited to the themes that the festival has chosen to treat. Racial Discrimination, pollution of the environment, food shortages are topics that will enable either emerging filmmakers or established directors to create interlaces that will make people think and be more aware.

Despite the crisis that the cinema industry has been going through in recent decades, it still remains very strong in its communicative power. It is a direct source of emotions, feelings, and manages to convey messages dense in content.

The general objectives that the International Exhibition of the Short Film Med-Limes "at the borders of the Mediterranean Sea” proposes to pursue are:

  1. The use of the medium of cinema to spread and make known the different cultures and identities that coexist in the Mediterranean area.
  2.  The promotion of works by emerging filmmakers who have a great cultural value.
  3. Focus on the themes of the 17 SDGs, the Sustainable Development Goals; spreading the principles, tools and individual commitments that each citizen and signatory state can take to achieve them.

Med-Limes "At the borders of the Mediterranean Sea" is addressed not only to the people who live in the Mediterranean area but also to all the people of the world, and to the young generations that need to be educated to the themes of respect for others and the environment.
