Brig Film Festival kicks off: June 15 and 16 celebrate cinema of Lecco and Brianza

The film festival aims to bring out the artistic heritage of the area with
a weekend of screenings in the historic deconsecrated Monastery of Missaglia
artistic direction of the Lecco Film Commission

The Department of Culture of the City of Missaglia, in collaboration with the Consulta Giovani Sport Cultura, is pleased to announce the Brig Film Festival, an innovative non-competitive film festival that celebrates the stories, directors and productions related to the territory of Lecco, Brianza and Lario.

The event will be held on 15 and 16 June at the former Monastery of Mercy in Missaglia, where screenings will take place under the frescoes of the deconsecrated church, creating a unique and evocative atmosphere.

The Brig Film Festival is sponsored by the Province of Lecco. The festival – whose name is inspired by the Celtic term “brig” (hill, high ground) from which it also derives “Brianza” – will offer the public a rich variety of titles for adults and children, in total 27 short films, feature films, documentaries, animation, video clips, highlighting the talent and creativity of local filmmakers.

This special event dedicated to the seventh art has in fact the aim of enhancing the works of excellence of the territory, which have been selected with care by the artistic direction of the Lecco Film Commission.

During the two days of the festival, visitors will also have the opportunity to interact directly with the directors, producers and actors present, who will share their experiences and visions directly with the audience.

The Brig Film Festival is proposed as a cultural event of importance, which intends not only to entertain but also inspire, promoting Lecco and Brianza, historically known lands for industrious people and craft excellence, agricultural and industrial, as a territory also rich in stories to tell, artists to know and virtuous production houses to discover.

With the intent to organize an event that is both entertainment and dissemination, the Brig Film Festival wants to be a catalyst for innovation socio-cultural, helping to spread the passion for art through an event dedicated to cinema and designed to shine the unexpressed potential of the territory.

The event uses the collaboration of Purple Entertainment and Spectacular for the technical realization, with the support of Lake Como Tourism as media partner.
There will be on-site refreshment points with food trucks, master brewer and homemade ice cream.
