Video Conversations – International Documentary Film Festival on Art and Architecture is one of the most important cultural events curated by Art Doc Festival, that provides a new call for entries every year and, by the time, it has become a consolidated and awaited appointment in the cultural landscape of Rome. The Festival is characterized for being an interdisciplinary event, it is a crossing point among different artistic languages: it recounts us the infinite possible expressions of art and architecture through the cinematographic language. The Festival proposes a reflection on how the architecture and art are confronted with the audiovisual medium and how the dialogue among different artistic languages can create works of particular originality and experimentation. Art Doc Festival also has an extensive archive of documentary films (over 5,000 titles) constituded by the films submitted to our Festivals in the ten years of cultural events organization and coming from all around the world. It is a unique archive, of the that extraordinary form of cinema and show which is the documentary.

PRODUCTION OF VIDEOS AND DOCUMENTARY FILMS
Art Doc Festival is also an interlocutor for the production and the realization of documentaries and videos on art, architecture. Taking advantage of the professionalism and experience of numerous collaborators, both experts in the field of art and both in the field of cinema, both professionals related to the historical-critical aspects and both regarding the technical details, we can realize video projects at different levels of complexity, following all the production’s aspects from the project’s ideation until the final product’s edition. During the recent years we have worked mainly on projects about contemporary art and architecture with a particular emphasis on the relationship between the artist (or the architect) and the creation of his work. We did it by filming the artists at work in their studios, collecting their thoughts and filming the preparation of their exhibitions and installations. Museums, Foundations, Art Galleries and Art Associations, Artists and Architects, are our main customers, for which we produce: documentaries, interviews, audiovisual contributions to art exhibitions, promotional videos, reports and backstage of exhibitions and cultural events, specific editing of historical footage.
