International Film Festival of Architecture and Design

Al di là della visione - Afragola Film Festival 2022

Organized by Gabbianella Club Srls with the contribution of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities (Directorate General for Cinema and Audiovisual).

Al di là della visione is a film festival that looks at the relationship between architecture, design and audiovisual works. Often, in fact, it is precisely this relationship that defines the style of a work. The encounter between cinema and architecture has always been rich in exchanges and intertwining, material and intangible. Architecture that is not, however, an aseptic container, but a space dedicated to the filmic story, a means of real narrative evolution, set, active actor of the story. Physical space can tell human psychology directly or indirectly, through the combination of these two arts that enhance everyday or exceptional experiences.
