On Wednesday 20 July, the Future Film Festival’s “Splash Edition – Draw the future” moves to “Frida nel Parco” ” (Parco della Montagnola), for a new event open to all those who want to draw freely, interpreting the 2022 Future Film Festival’s main topic: the so-called retro-future.
While the objective of the event is to promote young artists and artisans by offering them an exhibition space, the event is aimed at all citizens who wish to dive in a programme full of new ideas and angles, including retrofuturo, a theme that will be at the heart of the next edition of the Future Film Festival.
After free registration, from 8 PM anyone in possession of paper, pens, nibs or pencils will be able to try their hand at creating their own drawing. The best 5 pieces will be selected at the end of the evening. The artists who interpret the theme best will win a drink offered by Frida, also dedicated to the retro-future.
Otto Gabos will be leading the contest with his live drawing. Not only is he an artist and storyteller who makes comics, he’s also teaching at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna and is the cultural manager of Bologna’s comics and illustration festival “Arena!”.
A Dj Set by Gliesse 581c (aka Francesco Capanni), member of the Radicircuiti group, will be animating the evening as part of an electronic music show created in collaboration with the Conservatorio G.B. Martini.
