The 3rd International Competition 'FestArte VideoArt Festival' - the international video art competition in Italy - is ready to kick off.

Promoted and sponsored by Italian Federculture, organized by the Associazione Culturale FestArte, devised and directed by Artistic Director Lorena Benatti.

The aim of the competition is to give visibility to audiovisual language, to promote its research and artistic cultural content, as well as to valorise emerging international talents - past editions involved 34 Countries across the globe. 

The artistic aim is supported by a social objective. Indeed, the theme of the third edition of the Competition is the INVISIBLE VIOLENCE in private, public, social contexts. FestArte VideoArt Festival invites video artists to investigate a kind of violence that is not much visible: violence that hides in the depths of our most private, familiar and intimate worlds; that we find in the public and working environment with harassment and stalking; violence that conspires with the political and economic powers and affects the life of a community. If undercovering the invisible violence can give us the key to part from it, then such awareness will also provide the necessary resources for a new beginning.
