"Lesbian life between reality, imaginary, representations"

On the 21st of May 2005, IMMAGINARIA takes part in the congress "Lesbian life between reality, imaginary, representations" organized by Soggettività Lesbica. The speech "Rebels, lesbians, eccentrics. All sane women" by some IMMAGINARIA organizers will take place in MILAN at 2.30 p.m. at the "LIBERA UNIVERSITA' DELLE DONNE - address: Corso di Porta Nuova 32" (visit this site for the congress program  but pay attention to the changed address)

IMMAGINARIA, 12th  Edition

From the 17th to the 20th of November 2005, don't miss the new IMMAGINARIA edition, the wonderful, unique, inimitable International Women's Film Festival!

In 2004 Immaginaria was not inactive. Although forced to give up the usual annual appointment due to economical, logistics, and "institutional" troubles, "she" has not surrendered to the difficulties and she has worked in the background experimenting new channels to give continuity to "her" history. She reinforced her international contacts; she developed the collaboration with continental and overseas distribution houses; she worked out important projects earning the interest of the local institutions from which it is expected they translate in practice a partnership which could be profitable for both, including IMMAGINARIA in the permanent events of Bologna so that IMMAGINARIA could have plenty of bearableness as never she has been. Therefore, we are working with both some more hopes and a cautious optimism so that, if the promises will be kept, the twefth edition of the Festival will take place from the 17th to 20th of November 2005 and the thirteenth will take back its place on February 2006.  Kept in a lot of women's memories, the Festival introduce itself with a new visiting card which specifies its contents and gives back the visibility also to its feminist gaze and to figures and themes which were not ever disregarded. The Festival, pursueing its "Different gender objectives", starting from the twelfth edition will be named "IMMAGINARIA - International Women's Film Festival. REBELS, LESBIANS, ECCENTRICS".



IMMAGINARIA'S DRINK!!!

On FRIDAY 28th of NOVEMBER and FRIDAY 12th of DECEMBER 2003 from 7.00 p.m., let's take a drink and watch films at the WOMEN'S  BOOKSHOP in via Avesella 2, Bologna (ITALY)
