Introduction

Visions from the Future was born inside Cronosfera Festival as a video contest, a venture devoted to visions, researches and Space-Time perceptions amongst the new generations, and although remaining inside Cronosfera Festival, keeping its trail-blazing spirit, broadens and presents itself separately as a Festival dedicated to Video, with projections, video installations and evenings of Audio Video Live performances.

Visions from the Future aims to be an international window for works realized with the new media technology, starting from Video, declined in all its meanings and modes. A festival that fuses Cinema, the Audio-Visual world and new technologies, conjugating Science and Art. A festival that gives place to digital culture, to interactive sistems for artistic applications and to audio-visual performances.

Today more than ever the reflection on personal and collective future, Science and Science Fiction have shifted from a sociological to a personal and daily context, in a plot of past, present and future more and more intriguing. The Artistic expression, ever since, anticipates and expresses thoughts, anxieties, individual and collective feelings. Visions from the Future dedicates the filmic imagery to the future, and investigates expressive tools of special topicality, proposing what is of human interest in the world of the new media.
