East-West: Border through Film and History


Through research and studies, expert meetings and symposiums, film retrospectives and multimedia performances, the project offers an in-depth reflection on life along the border, bringing the turbulent and complex history closer to both local and European audiences. It focuses on the relationship between film and society, on the differences between fiction and reality, memory and historical fact, and between the languages of film, history, and sociology. 
"Along the Slovenian-Italian border, we do not only encounter dividing lines, but also their opposite. Throughout history, this has been the location of a point of connection that has also produced a unique audiovisual heritage,"" stated Kinoatelje, a centre that has so far brought together more than 25 film and research institutions from Slovenia, Italy, and beyond. 
Its rich network of partners is a testimony to the complexity of the project, which aims to valorise our common audiovisual heritage and showcase it internationally through a number of activities (symposium, retrospective, exhibition, production of publications and documentaries, restoration and digitisation processes, and didactic material).
