2022 Rome

“See the Sound, Listen to the Images” is the claim that emphasizes the synaesthetic approach of the audio-video performances of Live Cinema Festival now in its 9th edition.

“The project, promoted by Roma Culture, is the winner of the public notice Estate Romana 2020-2021-2022 curated by the Department of Cultural Activities and is realized in collaboration with SIAE.”

Now in its ninth year, with programming dense with relevant content and a great attention to multiple audiences, Live Cinema Festival born in Rome in 2014 is a unique event of its kind worldwide. In fact, there are no other festivals that promote this particular visual language in such a comprehensive and exhaustive way. Characteristics that have the potential to make LCF an important attraction for cultural and international tourism in Rome. 

Four days dedicated to the cutting edge of AudioVisual performances, where machines, art and technology come together to spread new messages, new imagery and new perspectives. All performances unreleased or presented for the first time in Italy and realized live for an immersive, synaesthetic and unique experience.

Having established itself internationally, Live Cinema Festival has become a highly anticipated and prominent event in the Capital’s artistic-cultural events scene thanks to its highly innovative format and characterized by highly interesting content.
