About:

Cinema d'iDEA is a Festival for Women directors and Transgenders. 2020 is the fourth edition . The Festival takes place in Rome, Italy , in the center of the old city. It is located in one of the most beautiful extraordinary place : Isola Tiberina, that it a very small island in the heart of Rome on the River Tiber that divides the city in two parts. It takes place at the end of June each year.
We think that it is extremely urgent to fill the gap of female point of view in our society with intensive communication programs. TO
RECOVER THAT GAP, THAT VOID AND REAL EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES, a Festival is a small but very important starting and meeting point, for the diversification of film culture, the image of women, feminine empowerment, not only in the cinema. The Festival is an encounter between
different cultures with the same matrix: the female point of view.
The objectives of the Festival:
1. Give more visibility to women and to the cinema of women.
2. Contributing to greater awareness of the working and expressive possibilities of the female
gender through the various sectors of the film industry, also improving the quality of
knowledge and life, thus creating better social security for all, not just for a specific sector of
society , or a genre.
3. Promote the role of women in various cinematographies, including international ones and in
the multiple arts.
4. Promote freedom of expression and speech and equal opportunities.
5. Building an image's education of this 50%, that is lacking in world cinema, for a better
distribution of knowledge and work in the future, with a focus on schools and girls.
6. Create a meeting place and possibility of networking for women directors, especially
European, with the possibility of reaffirming a commun identity.
7. The growth of national GDP, as a result of the improvement of Equal Opportunities, as per
recent declarations by the Bank of Italy and Mario Draghi.
8. And last but not least we will do a Conference with the focus on this very important point.
We will bring the Serner case to show how much truth there is in this statement. The title of
the Conference is: "7 and a half. HOW TO CREATE WEALTH. "

CALL FOR SUBMISSION TO CINEMA D' iDEA 2019
PREMISE:
From data emerged from the first gender study in the world of audiovisuals in Europe, carried out in
Italy by Mibact in collaboration with EWA, (network of European women) in the audiovisual
sector, many numbers and truths have emerged. Those data werecommunicated first in Venice
2016 and then definitively in Berlin 2016.
Women are struggling: the percentage of female directors in the world is 7%, and in the history of
the Oscars, only 4 women directors have been nominated for Best Direction. And in ITALY? The
percentage is even lower, although we have the HIGHEST NUMBER OF NOMINATIONS FOR
DIRECTORS. THE FIRST WOMAN TO BE APPOINTED TO THE OSCAR WAS OUR LINA
WERTMÜLLER. It emerges however that the scarcity of women concerns not only the directors
but also other "technical" roles as cinematographers etc. communicated in first instance in Venice
and then definitively in Berlin 2016. So, “Sorry, Ladies: Study on Women in Film and Television
Confirms The Worst. “ as Indie Wires tells.
In the cinema there is a lack of visibility of women and issues, as well as roles that are independent
of aesthetic standards and standardized roles. There is a real difficulty for women to be accepted as
they are, to be heard by producers and beyond. On the other hand, it is undoubted, due to the small
quantity detected, the creative capacity and the determination of the women in question, the few. So
much so, as we said before, among the nominations of directors at the Oscars, Italy beats all
countries.
It is therefore extremily urgent to fill this gap with intensive communication programs, TO
RECOVER THAT GAP, THAT VOID AND REAL EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES. A Festival is a
small but very important starting and meeting point, for the diversification of film culture, the
image of women, feminine empowerment, not only in the cinema, it's an encounter between
different cultures with the same matrix: the female point of view.
The objectives of the Festival:
1. Give more visibility to women and to the cinema of women.
2. Contributing to greater awareness of the working and expressive possibilities of the female
gender through the various sectors of the film industry, also improving the quality of
knowledge and life, thus creating better social security for all, not just for a specific sector of
society , or a genre.
3. Promote the role of women in various cinematographies, including international ones and in
the multiple arts.
4. Promote freedom of expression and speech and equal opportunities.
5. Building an image's education of this 50%, that is lacking in world cinema, for a better
distribution of knowledge and work in the future, with a focus on schools and girls.
6. Create a meeting place and possibility of networking for women directors, especially
European, with the possibility of reaffirming a commun identity.
7. The growth of national GDP, as a result of the improvement of Equal Opportunities, as per
recent declarations by the Bank of Italy and Mario Draghi.
8. And last but not least we will do a Conference with the focus on this very important point.
We will bring the Serner case to show how much truth there is in this statement. The title of
the Conference is: "7 and a half. HOW TO CREATE WEALTH. "
"Analyzing the data from a broader perspective, over the last ten years, the European Bank notes
that" the increase in the workforce during the economic recovery has been driven by female
participation ".
