“Listening with the eyes” is the theme that in its broadest sense will guide the 2023 edition of Visioni dal Mondo.
“Listening with the eyes” intends to emphasise the etymology of the word listening, that is, listening attentively, paying attention, observing, perceiving, feeling in order to understand, learn and increase one’s experience.
Each individual, even without being conscious, without realising it, when watching a video has this kind of experience and “Listening with the eyes” is an effective synesthesia to stimulate everyone to tune their mind, eyes and heart so as to live intensely and deeply understand the documentary films that recount life, events, changes with a completely free audio-visual language.
The deadline for submitting entries to the contests of the 9th International Documentary Festival Visioni dal Mondo is 31st May 2023, the entry forms and the complete calls for entries are available at www.visionidalmondo.it.
