Festival Description

This is a dynamic festival, aimed at the latest technologies and towards a public immersed in the digital arts, multimedia, illustration and film animation. Making best use of its online platform, BANG can reach all users and be watched on any screen anywhere in the world. In our last edition, we consolidated Bang Awards Festival as a reference event on the international circuit. From the first, our main objective has been clear: to create a privileged access to inter-film dialogue, as well as between creators and the public. What we have received in return is too precious to be quantified: hundreds of films that have touched us in so many ways. We are delighted with our journey so far and this has energised us to continue this surprising voyage through a world of creativity. Thank you all!
