Laterale is an international non competitive Festival of cinematic art organized by Associazione Culturale Laterale. Its aim is to enhance the most innovative aspects of audio-visual languages of the contemporary scene and to reduce the distance between artistic research and public involvement. Particular attention is given to young and independent filmmakers and to self-made no-budget works, as result of individual search.
The fifth edition of the LFF will take place in Cosenza (Italy) at Cinema San Nicola from September 13th to 15th 2021. The Festival promotes a free and stimulating project of sharing, that shows what usually is neglected or rejected because of the distance from the conventional way to do and to interpret the cinema. A space that breaks down barriers and prejudices, massification and standardisation, a space that wants to become an artistic laboratory where it is possible to discover now the cinema of the future.
