International Portrait Film Festival

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

IPFF is on the path towards its third edition in 2022. Once again, we will celebrate short portrait cinema and art with the potential to explore, educate, and transform.

A portrait is an image heavy with meaning. Multilayered and multifaceted, it has a visual, psychological, material, emotional and spiritual dimension.

Unravelled in art, the painted, the literary, the photographic portrait is often perceived by the human mind as a still frozen in time. But, in fact, it has already undergone a transformation. From its true origin, through the consciousness that revives the brush, the quill and the lens, to the semblance that begins its life on the canvas and on the page. Imitation and repetition, but with endless potential for future metamorphoses.

The film portrait, too, is captured in time. It is not motionless - literally and metaphorically. The cinematographic portrait is a soul in the form of light encountering the canvas of the white screen. The portrait is a trace. And a sign. A secret. A reverie.

FOCUS

The portrait is the focus of the films that will be screened at the IPFF. We are looking for cinematic portraits of a person, of a group of people, of objects, or of something invisible, but substantial. Portraits of the self and even of an abstract idea.

AIM

IPFF aspires to bring together artists and viewers who sincerely long for enrichment with art, intellectual discussion, and an experience of cinema through a new prism - that of the portrait film.

CHARACTER

IPFF is a hybrid event and platform. A symbiosis of intriguing live encounters and memorable virtual experiences. The interweaving of portrait cinema from around the world and debates, lectures, and masterclasses.

SPIRIT

IPFF is for those profoundly needing art and excitement. And for the ones in search of their catharsis. For the unafraid to stare at the screen even when it is empty. For those hungry for experimental viewpoints. For those forever in love with cinema, caught in its loop.

***

IPFF welcomes a wide specter of films and filmmakers: students, professionals, from low budget to big-scale productions, alternative and independent films by individuals and by collectives or institutions.

Prizes Details: 

The awarded films in each category are determined by an international jury of professionals with impressive accomplishments in their respected fields: film practitioners, academics, film critics, culturologists, authors, journalists. Presenting their different points of view, they distinguish the best films among the Official Selection of the festival.

IPFF will award the best portrait creations with:

The grand prize IPFF 2022 - MAYA Award
- An invitation to the IPFF festival days in 2023 
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘Maya Award IPFF 2022’

Award for the most wonderful portrait creation in each category
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Most Wonderful Film Award’

IPFF also presents a special award for a Film Dedication about the contribution of a person or about a cause aiming towards a brighter and better world
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Film Dedication Award’

Thoughts, ideas, perceptions and emotions can be conveyed through tools capable of leaving a trace of our experience on this Earth. All this happens in a more or less conscious, rationalized and programmed action, as we communicate our way of being in the world and our way of perceiving it. Signs, traces, images and stories convey here a meaning of explicit opening up, and the more personal and intimate side of the narrator emerges from it, with the aim of creating a communication channel and therefore a channeling of knowledge, empathy and union with others. All this being useful also for the sole work of introspection and self-analysis. As many artists have shown from the end of the 19th century to today - from painting to photography - the media adopted by art prove to be useful for this purpose.
