VISIONI FUORI RACCORDO is the Rome Documentary Film Festival dedicated to creative documentaries and non-fictional films. Started 9 years ago focusing on Cinema and Metropolis we have since expanded the focus to explore the meaning of borders, identities, memory and migrations. The festival intends to explore the edges of things; where change occurs. VISIONI FUORI RACCORDO focuses on the point of change.
The Festival is an important rendez-vous to promote and present documentaries in Rome. VISIONI FUORI RACCORDO is a great place for directors, critics and a large audience to meet and debate. Besides the Italian Competition, VISIONI FUORI RACCORDO presents Retrospectives, Perspectives, Homages and Special Screenings such as F. Wiseman In Jackson Heights in 2015 edition. The event involves the public and professionals to inspire meetings, debates and an open dialogue on nonfictional documentary narration and contemporary issues.
The Festival will take place in Rome in November, and there will be many related events, meetings and additional screenings nationally and internationally. In 2016 we will also present the Section HOMELANDS, committed to International Documentaries dealing with the search of identity and belongings through innovative documentary filmmaking.
Since its first edition, VFR is supported by Lazio Region, Rome Municipality and works in partnership with AAMOD Fondazione Archivio Audiovisivo del Movimento Operaio e Democratico, with the sponsorship of the production company Road Television.
We are very excited about this year’s lineup and we hope to see you there!
