Following the success of the past editions, AIDI (the Italian Cultural Association of Lighting) organizes and promotes the fourth edition of the International video competition “Riprenditi la città, Riprendi la luce”.
An initiative that aims to disseminate the “culture of light” among the young, to stimulate their awareness of the importance that this element plays in their daily lives, and to learn and understand how they interact, precisely through the light, with the city they live, work, or study in.
The light, the young participants and the cities still are the protagonists of this IV edition. The video will be the instrument through which they will narrate the light: a 60-second film, which can be filmed with portable or mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, video camera, camera, etc. The cities become the stage of their video shooting and tales, their lit backgrounds, the colourful scenographies through which the young participants will tell their stories, their squares, and their gathering, leisure, meeting, and work places.
A fresh look that, through many 60 second gazes, will not only convey the value of the light in our daily lives, but that will give us the idea of their dreams and hopes, of the image of our cities and, above all, of what their eyes see and communicate.
FOURTH EDITION’S NOVELTIES
The very young and the lighting designers
With the single theme LIGHT AND PLACES, this new edition is open to the under 18s, to the under 30s and to young lighting designers under 35. It will thus be interesting to compare the three categories’ works and different approaches, in an even richer and more interesting narrative. In particular, the competition wants to give to the young lighting designers the opportunity to introduce their work and to enhances their visibility.
The competition theme is LIGHT AND PLACES, where places can be either outdoor or interior. The short videos will have to narrate perception of light in the city and its value in the re-enhancement of the urban and social gathering spaces.
The new format of the video contest is divided into three categories: the under 18s, the under 30s, and young lighting designers under 35. All categories will deal on a single theme, LIGHT AND PLACES, and the instrument to be used will always be the 60-second video.
