Starting from the visual heritage of the three historical film festivals of Trentino, a surprising journey through time, space and the great religious traditions.

CinemAMoRe (archaeology, mountain, religions) is a project originating from the cooperation among Rassegna Internazionale del Cinema Archeologico of Rovereto, Trento Film Festival and Religion Today Film Festival, supported by the local ministry for the cultural affairs of the Autonomous Province of Trento.

CinemAMoRE aims to promote and enhance the richness and variety of the films collected in the archives of the three festivals, and to encourage the promotion of original and innovative films and languages, not easily found on commercial channels.

This year also the project, at its 5th edition,  will start during the "Feste Vigiliane", the great event dedicated to Saint Vigilius, patron saint of Trento.

On Wednesday 25th of June at 9:00 PM, at the conference room of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto (via Garibaldi 33), a selection of movies will show the different souls of the three festivals exploring genres and cultures:
