Corto e Fieno was born in 2010 from an idea of the Cultural Association Asilo Bianco. It is the only film festival in Italy (and one of the very few in the world) to dedicate its entire work to rural films dealing with the relationship between the man and the land. Its goal is to investigate through cinema the persistence of rurality in contemporary society.
The selected films come from all over the world and talk about rurality through the different languages and genres of cinema. Feature films, documentaries, animations, experimental works are presented every year.
The Festival is a free event open to everyone and hosted in cinemas as well as in special spaces dedicated to agricultural work.
Long live the cinema! Long live the countryside!
