For archaeology, a very dynamic science today, there is an increasing interest for the entire public. The documentary is certainly the most adequate kind to present it and to show its multiples facettes. The Museum likes a Festival for a public giving them the possibility to discover various subjets and visions in the vast field of archaeology.

This international festival of films dealing with archaeology offers to a very large audience (including school age youths) the chance of discovering or rediscovering recent films about archaeology on a large screen, in French or with French subtitles, those films having been shot and produced anywhere in the world.

To that end and thanks to the support of our different partners (the ministry of cultural affairs, the local communities and private patrons) the admittance to all projections, from the opening show to the closing one when prizes are awarded, is entirely free.

It is to be noticed that the film makers are invited to explain their work to the audience before it is projected. The next edition of the Besançon festival is scheduled to take place in November 2009

KINEON

Back to list
   KINEON
9th International Archaeological Film Festival of
Brussels, Belgium, November 4 - 6, 2011

In 2000 the UNESCO declared four Belgian excavation sites as World Cultural Heritage. So the neolithic mines of Spiennes were put on this list of great worth. The deep shafts of flint extractions from the camp at Cayaux were published in all newspapers and whole of Belgium discovered a phase of its past. Nevertheless you realized that up to that date the neolithic site wasn't well-known. It was similar to the prehistoric site of Atapuerca (Spain), which was readmitted to the list 2001.

The destruction of the huge Buddhas by the Talibans in Afghanistan accentuated the beginning of the year 2001. These statues carved out of stone were detroyed by explosives in a few seconds after having resisted the time for centuries. We are also worried about the news coming from Peru, announcing a collapse of one part of the Machu Picchu mountain chain, Zeugma, the town in Turkey, which sank into the water of the dam and Cambodia, which brings the plundering of the Khmer towns to attention of the international public.

The protection and preservation start with information and education to the public. Kinéon permits, thanks to free admission to the festival, every one to discover the former brillant civilizations of the whole world. The team Kinéon is active in preservation and protection of the cultural heritage with its educational role concerning the film shows.

Kinéon will dedicate objectively itself to discoveries of less known archaeological sites. The emphasis is put on productions outside Europe and also on recent films. Apart from the film productions there are speakers invited telling about current archaeology.

ROVERETO

   Rassegna Internazionale del Cinema Archeologico di Rovereto
Rovereto, Italy, October 1-5, 2013

The RASSEGNA INTERNAZIONALE DEL CINEMA ARCHEOLOGICO began in April 1990 in Rovereto with the congress "Paolo Orsi and Archaeology of 900", with the aim of reaching and awaking the large public to the themes of archaeological research and preservation of the cultural heritage. The festival is organized by the Civic Museum of Rovereto, in which some of the most important Italien archaeologists were, such as Paolo Orsi and Federico Halbherr between 1800 and 1900. The main partner of the Festival is the journal Archeologia Viva, the most widely - circulated archaeology journal in Italy. The Festival of Rovereto takes place every year in the first weeks of October. On this occasion the public can see films in the field of archaeological, historical, palaeontological, anthropological research and all those films aiming at the preservation and bringing out the value of the cultural heritage.

Every year about 60 to 70 films are shown and through public voting a film wins the prize "Città di Rovereto- Archeologia Viva". Every two years an international jury awards the "Prize Paolo Orsi". The selection is thematic and regards the work of recent productions. The knowledge of archaeology is widened through numerous meetings and conversations with archaeologists and scientists from all over the world.

The Festival, with the journal "Archeologia Viva", promotes every year several other festivals in Italy and abroad with the collaboration of institutions, scientific associations and museums. All films reported to the Festival are also catalogued and registered on an online data bank of the Civic Museum. Since 1990 the Festival has been directed by Dario Di Blasi, honorary curator at the Civic Museum of Rovereto.
