Press release n. 8 Florence, 14/12/05

Press Office – Cantiere of virtual art, the first multimedia festival in streaming video, comes back once again into the “physical reality” in the city of Florence, Italy, with a new event in the Spaccio Mulas “Il Riciclo” (a fashion and clothing outlet), from December 15th to the 17th, in Via Marsuppini, 4.

The virtual festival continues its physical gallery route moving into another unconventional place usually used as a commercial space: an old two storey building representing, with its style and volumes, a perfect fit to become an audio/video installation space for three days.

The goal for this festival-gallery circulating in the city spaces and in Italy, is always the one of working as a promotional active channel for the videos winner of the 2005 Edition.

The screens, sounds and light installation represent the website colours and atmospheres and will receive the videos in a frame that unites art and fashion and a pinch of trend by changing for a few days the usual look of the hosting space.

Very welcomed guest in these three days with DigiFestival is the movie winner of the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, and will be shown in the first part of the evening of the 17th.

The program:

Thursday 15th and Friday 16th
15.30 – 19.30 – Screening of the winners of 2005 Edition
19.30 – 21.30 – Video aperitif

Saturday 17th
15.30 – 19.30 - Screening of the winners of 2005 Edition
20.45 – screening of the movie winner of the 5th editon of the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival
22.00 – Christmas Party with live DJ set and videos!

The staff will be available for all who would want information about the 2006 Edition of the festiva.
