The fifth edition of Aqua Film Festival will finally take place in March 26th to 27th, 2021 after the postponement due to the pandemic situation.
The international film festival aims at representing the extraordinary world of water, with its different values and functions, to discover new talents in the fields of cinema and audiovisual. The festival, organized by the nonprofit Cultural Association Universi Aqua, will be screened for free, on the international platform MyMovies.it. The award ceremony (the possibility of guests’ participation to the event is still to be defined) will take place in streaming at the House of Cinema, in Rome.
The Artistic Director and founder of the festival is Eleonora Vallone, painter, stylist, author, cinema, TV and theatre actress, journalist and water sports expert.
The event will not only enhance the value of water from the artistic and aesthetical point of view, but will also stimulate film directors to report environmental disasters, caused by the scarce attention paid to water resources.

The patronage of UNIMED to this event, connected to the relevance of this delicate issue in the region where we operate, is a sign of commitment and a little contribution towards the broader sustainable development promotion in the Mediterranean that we pursue.
