The new official poster image, many-colored and pop, is realized by Mario Alberti, a cartoonist and illustrator from Trieste.
It is an invitation to plunge into the imaginary and fantastic worlds of projections for five days in a row full of previews. The event, as usual, is dedicated to science fiction, but there are sporadic intrusions of fantasy and horror films.
The international competition for the Asteroide award (realized this year too by an artist from the area close to Trieste – Michele Spanghero is its author for this edition) makes by now a permanent match with the European competition for the Méliès d’Argento award for the best fantastic full length films and shorts, organized in collaboration with the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation.
Spazio Italia presents the national productions and this year it paves the way to the lifetime achievement award Urania d’Argento, given to the filmmaker Gabriele Salvatores, who, in cooperation with FVG Film Commission, shot in Trieste his full length film The Invisible Boy (Il ragazzo invisibile), a fantasy bildungsroman. The Incontri di Futurologia, talks between science and science fiction, complete the show schedule on a multidisciplinary level. The invasion continues.
