La Macina di San Cresci



Slow Movie Contest is a contest of short films about Chianti, which aims to make art a means of promoting the territory, making use of young directors who are required to use the video tool as a communication language.

It is an idea of the cultural association La Macina di San Cresci, which is the organizer of the event, with the support of the Tuscany Region (within the context of Toscanaincontemporanea), and in collaboration with the Fondazione Sistema Toscana and the Coordination of the Municipalities of the Chianti.
Slow Movie Contest was born from the desire to make these 8 municipalities: Barberino Val D'Elsa, Castellina in Chianti, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Greve in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, San Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, a large productive basin of culture.
The 8 young directors will not simply show their works and their talent but they will make them on the territory and with the territory. By telling about the activities and places, their ability to grow and reinvent themselves, they will contribute to the development of the territory itself. It is a challenge with which the Macina di San Cresci has been measuring itself for some time, running a residence for artists, which sees painters, sculptors and writers from all over the world alternating on the territory and every year publishes a yearbook available on the internet.

Cinema is the art of moving image: in the image there is memory, in movement the future. That's why cinema is the ideal way to promote activities and places.
A first goal that draws a strategy: 8 shorts gathered in a single documentary that travel the world, like 8 municipalities gathered in a single region that becomes an importer and exporter of culture.
