The Project

Sistema Festival Fotografia is a network created in 2017 through the will of five Italian photography festivals – Fotografia Europea, Cortona On The Move, SI FEST, The Festival of Ethical Photography and Photolux Festival – as a platform for exchange and a meeting place to compare, plan, and identify common paths, all the while safeguarding the uniqueness of each entity.
The reasons behind the birth of this new project come from the desire to share communication strategies, to set up a fundraising system on a national scale and, on a long term scale, to coordinate the planning of unpublished content.
At the same time, participation in a discussion table will allow for the analysis of common problems and the sharing of solutions to facilitate work and permit a common and shared growth. Il Sistema in perspective contemplates the expansion of the number of members to other photography festivals that meet the quality criteria established during the constitution phase.
