Sguardi Altrove is one of a handful of Italian festivals devoted to women directors.

The festival creates a unique space to showcase the best international and Italian films by women, with eight days of screenings, talks, workshops. Sguardi Altrove aims at giving visibility to all genres of audiovisual production, from feature films to documentaries, short films, video art, animation. More than half of the films presented are Italian premieres.

Over the years, the festival has welcomed world-renowned authors as well as up-and-coming filmmakers from all corners of the planet.

The festival includes three competitive sections:

Nuovi Sguardi / New Visions: International Feature Film Competition
Award: 2500 euros

Le donne raccontano / Women’s Voices: International Documentary Competition
Award: 1500 euros

Sguardi (s)confinati / Boundless Visions: International Short Film Competition
Award: 1000 euros

From 2007 Sguardi Altrove has decided to admit films by male directors, by creating the non-competitive section Sguardi Incrociati / Intersections. The aim is to enrich the festival with a wide-ranging perspective on new Italian film.

A series of out of competition sections, which vary for each edition, gives the public a glimpse of the most pressing contemporary issues. Every year, the festival also puts together a focus, representing a specific perspective from which to observe today’s world and the identity of contemporary women.
