Filmmakers opinion requested. Poll about broadcasting the Ascona Film Festival short films selection.



We are thinking about broadcasting the Ascona Film Festival short films selection.

We can use bambuser-logo for a live broadcast of your films. It’s gonna be on streaming and no download possible (except for hackers, but…).

We think it’s a good opportunity for reaching a wide public and make a lot of visibility of your productions.

This is a first open poll and if we get a positive feedback we will ask permission to all the selected filmmakers to make the broadcast.

In any case we will not public publish your work without your permission, don’t worry.  We care about filmmakers and act accordingly.

Il livello intenazionale della qualità raggiunta già dalla seconda edizione conferma le aspettative sulla qualità e il significato dell’evento a livello culturale, artistico e come potenziale attrattore turistico per la nostra regione. Sta ora alle autorità decederne le sorti e utilizzarlo con lungimiranza come “calcio d’inizio” per la stagione turistica.  La fromula e l’architettura sono solide e  se arriveranno i sostegni per la promozione l’Evento potrebbe aggiungersi alle iniziative per rendere competitiva a livello culturale e turistico la nostra destinazione.
