The Rovereto Civic Museum Foundation, as part of its many cultural activities, has organized an International Film Festival annually since 1990, from 2021 on called RAM film festival (once International Festival of Archaeological Film). The Festival aims at reaching and informing the general public about the preservation and enhancement of the world heritage and the archaeological research.
In the Festival are shown works of every nationality and it is open to producers, film directors and cinema and television authors who have made films in the sector of archaeological, historical, paleoethnology and anthropological research with the aim of preserving and enhancing cultural features and the world cultural heritage, material and immaterial (cultural sites and also natural sites when closely related to peoples and cultures). Documentaries, full-length, middle-length and short films and animated films of any length.
All screenings, events and activities are free admission.
The RAM Film Festival, organised by the Civic Museom Foundation, grew, thanks to the introduction of informal moments of in-depth analysis with the protagonists of archaeological research and heritage protection, movie-makers, producers, scholars, lecturers, and scientists from all over the world.
The current media partners are National Geographic and the Italian magazine Archeo.
Compared to the first editions, Rovereto’s Festival has grown and it is now part of a regular effort to cultivate a broad and complex cultural project that continues beyond the week of the Festival itself.
documentaries and docufictions in the following areas:
> ancient art
> ancient religions
> anthropology, etnography
> experimental archaeology
> geophysics and new technologies applied to the cultural Heritage
> investigation of looted archaeological and cultural heritage
> reportages on archaeological sites
Thanks indeed to its rich audio-visual heritage, the Festival has always been engaged in creating and weaving a broad network of cinematographic events in Italy and abroad, providing documentaries for the Italian edition edited by its own staff. The collaborations with bodies, institutions and museums are really numerous: from Turin to Sicily, to Egypt, Turkey and many more.
In 2010 along these lines, the summer Festival CinemA.Mo.Re. started. It is a joint project with the Trento Film Festival and the Religion Today Film Festival, promoted by the Department for Culture of the Autonomous Province of Trento. It spreads the richness and variety of cinematographic materials from the archives of the three festivals to the whole of Trentino, to promote knowledge of films and original and innovative styles, often absent in commercial circles.
There are various international collaboration projects, such as those with the Italian Institutes of Culture in Belgrade, Cairo and Istanbul and with the Iranian Research Institute for Cultural Heritage and the Italian Embassy in Teheran.
The Festival also became a founder of FEDARCINE, the European Foundation of Archaeological Cinema and Cultural Heritage based Athens (www.fedarcine.com).
