"Ogni goccia d'acqua". Discover Acea's campaign!
The Giffoni Film Festival, enjoying its 53rd edition, has always been committed to supporting the talent of new generations by involving them personally through events, workshops, training courses, so that their ambitions can be realised.
Once again this year Acea has chosen to make a concrete contribution to the children's film festival through a series of interventions: the focus is on sustainability with the aim of promoting 'good practices' for a conscious use of water and environmental resources.
The Giffoni Film Festival was born from a Claudio Gubitosi's idea: from a young age, he had always been fond of cinema and at the age of eighteen, in 1971, he decided to set up a real film festival for children. Various aspects made it innovative: the selection of films for children and young people, a little-known genre at the time, but one that immediately gained popularity; a jury that was exclusively made up of young people; and the setting, i.e. Claudio Gubitosi’s home town, Giffoni Valle Piana, in the province of Salerno.
Over the years, many Italian and international authors have taken part to the Festival: from François Truffaut, Robert De Niro, Michelangelo Antonioni, to Alberto Sordi and Sergio Leone, who consecrated the event as an important appointment for film culture and beyond.
The Giffoni Film Festival has been transformed over the years to become Giffoni Experience, establishing itself not only as a cultural event but as an efficient cultural enterprise that employs full time tens of young people throughout the year.
The festival is constantly evolving, the format has been taken abroad, until after 50 years it has reached a new era, the Giffoni Opportunity, a team of over 300 young people is ready to manage the present and the future.
In this edition of the children's film festival, Acea is taking an active part in the Giffoni Impact, the workshop reserved for 200 young people aged between 18 and 28, which allows them to debate with representatives of institutions, scientists, sociologists and company CEOs on various crucial issues.
Once again this year the Acea Special Award, enjoying its second edition, rewards the film that has best addressed the issue of sustainability and protection of water resources. It is Mighty Afrin: in the Time of Floods directed by Angelos Rallis, which will be awarded by Salvatore Rubbo - CEO Gesesa - on July 29.
Acea is taking part in the "Parental Experience", the educational activity designed to involve children's parents as well, with screenings, workshops and meetings. On 25 July at 10:00 am, in the Sala Verde, Gori CEO Vittorio Cuciniello will introduce the workshop "Energie per il Sarno", while on 27 July at 10:00 am in the Sala Verde, Gesesa CEO Salvatore Rubbo will speak on the theme "Climate change".
This year Acea is deploying two reporters among the most active youngsters at past editions of the Giffoni Film Festival. They will have the task of interviewing the festival's guests and talents on the themes of sustainability and water saving. The interviews will then be available on Acea's social channels.
