ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
Presentation of the official programme of the Trento Film Festival. The 68th edition will be a special one. Why? first of all because it has been postponed from springtime to the end of summer, from August 27th to September 2nd; and then because this year the projections will take place not only in Trento, but it will be also streamed around Italy. Almost 100 movies are scheduled, chosen among more than 600 films, with 26 world premières and 37 Italian premières.
The soiréee at the PalaDolomites is dedicated to Tom Ballard, passed away in February 2019 on the Nanga Parbat during an expedition with Daniele Nardi. Tom had chosen Val di Fassa as his home and here he had fallen in love with Stefania Pederiva. An unseen short movie "I’m not alone, I’m with the mountains" about the English alpinist will be projected by the "PalaDolomites", followed by a roundtable moderated by the journalist Fausta Slanzi, with the protagonists of the movies, such as Stefania Pederiva, Manolo, Riccarda de Eccher, Margherita Berlanda, and the film directors Elena Goatelli and Angel Esteban.
AT 9.00 p.m. by the events pavillion "PalaDolomites" in Campestrin at "Palua". Free entry.
