Il cinema libero si distingue dal cinema snaturato dall’industria, la televisione, la tecnica, l’intrattenimento e il denaro.
Libero da diritti d’autore, sotto Licenza Arte Libera o Creative Common, si condivide e “détourne” senza vincoli. Indipendente dall’industria, esiste grazie all’autoproduzione, al finanziamento condiviso su Intenet o si realizza talvolta del tutto senza denaro. A volte è detto amatoriale. E anche quando si serve dei mezzi del sistema di produzione dominante, il risultato finale non ne è contaminato. La tecnologia digitale, poiché permette di realizzare e diffondere un film con pochi mezzi, ha ampliato il suo spazio vitale.
Il cinema libero ha qualcosa da dire e talvolta anche da gridare. Se ne infischia delle aspettative del puubblico, non è un mestiere, non cerca un ritorno in investimenti e ignora i codici, i format, le procedure e le mode. È un cinema di esperienze, spesso fondato sul bricolage, la condivisione, la gratuità, la leggerezza e la freschezza. Pone la poesia prima della tecnica, la vita prima dello spettacolo e i fatti prima degli effetti. È un vaccino contro le immagini dominanti e formalizzate che ci informano.

El cinema libre difiere del cine desnaturalizado por la industria, la televisión, la tecnología, el entretenimiento y el dinero.Libre de derechos, bajo licencia Arte libre o Creative Common, se comparte y se “détourne” sin trabas. Independiente de la industria, apela a la auto-produccion, a financiamientos comunitarios via internet, o incluso se hace sin dinero. Se lo dice a veces amateur. E incluso cuando utiliza medios del sistema de produccion dominante, el resultado final no se ve afectado. Las tecnologias numericas, porque permiten realizar y difundir una pelicula con pocos recursos, han ampliado su espacio vital. El cinema libre tiene algo para decir e incluso a veces para gritar. No le importa las expectativas del publico, no es un oficio, no busca un “retorno de la inversion” e ignora los codigos, los formatos, los procedimientos y las modas. Es un cinema de experiencias, a menudo fundado sobre el bricolaje, el compartir, la gratuitad, la ligereza y la frescura. Hace pasar la poesia ante la tecnica, la vida ante el espectaculo y los hechos ante los efectos. Es un antidoto contra las imágenes dominantes y formateadas.

El colectivo por el festival international del cinema libre, particularmente a través de la organización del festival internacional del cine libre se da como fin establecer una base, entre las numerosas ya existentes, para compartir y hacer descubrir las obras pasadas y actuales que se distinguen del cine « industrial ». Se da por objetivo sensibilizar al público por diferentes acciones y organizar un debate alrededor de las prácticas emergentes: autoproducción, libre de derechos, licencia Creative Common y Arte Libre, financiación comunitaria, etc.

What is Cinema Libre and what is this festival ? (english)

Cinema Libre is produced by people who have to say something. Cinema libre is placing poetry before technique/technology, life before show, and facts before effects. It is the antidote to dominant and standardized pictures, which are shaping us. It differs from the cinema made by industry, television, business, entertainment, motion picture technology and money. Cinema Libre does not pay attention to public expectations. It is neither a job, nor a business. It does not look for a return on investment. It ignores codes, formats and fashions. It is a cinema of experiments and many times it is based on DIY, sharing, lightness and freshness.

To be independent from the film industry, movies can be self-produced, crowd funded and/or be produced with no money at all. These movies are sometimes labelled as “amateur movies”. Furthermore there are movies, which are under copyleft licences or under Creative Commons licences and can be shared and modified freely. Even some movies produced in the traditional way divert themselves from the conformism that is involved in/ belongs to the hegemonic system.

 In the last decade, digital technologies (camera, mobile, internet, computer) extended the space of cinema libre, as they are/ it’s made possible to produce and to share movies easily.

This is a chance to promote the cinema libre, since the access from creation to diffusion is now available for many people.

By definition, cinema libre has no definition. That’s why this festival wants to be an occasion to develop this idea of cinema. By watching movies – your movies – and by giving space and time for discussions we will try to make the cinema libre defining itself

The Festival Cinema Libre is organized by the French-German Association for Cinema Libre. The association is arranged by people who want to make a base to share and to show past and present movies, that distinguish from the industrial cinema. We have the goal to increase public awareness through different actions and to organize debates and discussions about practices like self-production, copyfree, copyleft and Creative Commons Licences, crowd funding, etc.

 The participation in the Festival Cinema Libre is open to all moviemakers who consider their movies in the spirit of cinema libre.

The Festival Cinema Libre is open to any ideas and cooperation. Also, any forms of expression that are not filmic (music, etc.) and might be part of the festival are very welcomed.
