On Saturday 7 October the third day of the Terra di Tutti Film Festival opened with the meeting New citizenships: the right to participation, a multi-voiced debate to talk about the thousand faces of participation. Politics, activism and art are different forms that participation can take, despite having a common goal: eradicating inequalities and demanding equal rights for all. We talked about it with representatives of the political, cultural and artistic world, both Italian and international.
Program (10 – 11.30) Freedom is participation. The challenges of political participation in the European panorama

The 17th edition of the Terra di Tutti Film Festival took place in Bologna from 5 to 8 October 2023: the review of social cinema, meetings and events promoted by COSPE. An important edition for COSPE which celebrates 40 years of activity this year. “From 1983 to today – declares Anna Meli, president of COSPE – we have always put people at the centre, the repudiation of social injustices and discrimination of all kinds, maintaining a broad, global and international outlook”. Over the years, COSPE has looked at the Terra di Tutti Film Festival as a moment in which many of these principles condense and become visions and voices. The Terra di Tutti Film Festival is an opportunity to collect the testimonies of those who experience injustices and oppose them, of those who study and denounce them.
