Future Film Festival announces the new dates

10 May 2022

Future Film Festival is pleased to announce the dates of its 22nd edition, to be held in Bologna from 21 to 25 September 2022 and in Modena from 30 September to 2 October 2022.

The first international “made in Italy” event dedicated to animation, visual effects, virtual and augmented reality, gaming and media arts that brings together art, industry and new technologies  is promoted and organised by the cooperative DOC Servizi and the DOC Network in collaboration with the association “Amici del Future Film Festival”. The theme for the 22nd/2022 edition is “RETRO FUTURO”, or that special way cinema has to tell, predict and imagine the things to come.

This year’s fil rouge will be the future seen from the past, and the ability of artists to transform imagination into reality in a 2022 full of anniversaries, such as the 45th anniversary of Star Wars, the 25th anniversary of Men in Black and the 40th anniversary of ET, the Extra-Terrestrial and Blade Runner, all shining examples of how cinema was able to foretell the future, leaving a mark on the collective imagination for many years to follow, thanks to the visionary directors, writers and artists who work in this field.
