Storie di chi is the media partner of the initiative that promotes creativity, innovation and self-discovery on the big screen

Glasgow (Scozia) – We are pleased to announce that we are the Italian media partner of “Krafta Doc International Art Making Film Festival”, an international festival of short films, documentaries and art videos that explore and make visible the process of creation through the sciences, arts and the humanities.

Creativity means perceiving the world in new ways, making connections between persons and
disciplines, finding innovative solutions. Creativity is the field of the artists, these original thinkers and visionaries, and we want to know their stories, to watch and share them. The aim of Krafta is to investigate the local and international creative production through high quality films, while opening up discursive debates on tradition and innovation in the arts and crafts with invited
professionals.

—-> Krafta will hold its inaugural edition in Glasgow at the Lighthouse, National Centre for Design and Architecture, and at the Sloans Grand Ballroom, from the 27th September 2017 to the 01st October 2017..

The team of storiedichi.com will present the documentary film “A Watchman”, which tells about the story of the well known Italian watch factory “Fratelli Solari”. The documentary has been shot in 2015 by filmmaker Naù Germoglio on a project by Silvia Zanardi . It will be presented on Friday, the 29th at 1.30 pm.
