Animal is selected for the Sguardi Altrove International Women’s Film Festival in Italy

The 25th edition of Sguardi Altrove International Woman’s Film Festival will be held in Milan (Italy) from March 11th to March 18th, 2018. The main theme for this new edition will be “Women’s Talents. The Art of Making.” Nayla Al Khaja’s short film Animal will enter the Sguardi (S)confinati section, e.g. the international female directed short films competition.

The Festival’s first aim is to encourage, through cinematographic art and expression, a reflection on relevant issues for women related to their specific cultural, political and social context, but also according to a multicultural and global perspective. Therefore, the Festival itself wants to be a place for intercultural dialogue and dialectical comparison between different cinematographies, as well as an opportunity to promote distribution of films that are unlikely to have access to commercial circuits, in spite of their quality and thematic relevance. The Festival pays particular attention to emerging cinemas and female filmmakers.
