In Dreams - A Celebration of the Dream Short Film
A true celebration of the oneiric short film with the festival entitled In Dreams. A program focused on the concept of 'dream', through a variety of genres ranging from animation to experimental shorts and documentaries. Short films from around the world, whose common thread is the 'dream' understood as desire, utopia, achievement of a goal, but also as chimera, fantastic vision, surreal event, dreamlike experience and fiction of the mind. The short film screenings will be followed by a question-and-answer session between the attending filmmakers and the audience. Shorts On Tap was born in London in 2013 from an idea of Venetian Filippo Polesel. Since then, the festival has become a real point of reference for independent and nonindependent filmmakers in the British capital.

Her boyfriend, a friend, the musician who works with her, and finally a soldier open her eyes to the world. An emblematic film of the nouvelle vague.

Flying in space: this is the dream Thomas Pesquet realized by taking off from the Baïkonour base on Thursday, November 17, 2016.

Olga (Switzerland / France, 2021, 85', v.o.sott.it.), by Elie Grappen
2013. 15-year-old Olga is a talented Ukrainian gymnast forced into asylum in Switzerland. Her mother, in fact, is a well-known independent journalist who is invisible to her country's government, which has been set ablaze by protests against President Janukovyč. Olga, like all athletes of her level, dreams of Olympic gold, and works hard to integrate herself into a new national team ahead of the European Championships. The most awarded Swiss film of the year is a poignant and powerful coming-of-age novel set at a crucial historical moment for Europe. A great film, a true revelation of the Cannes Film Festival 2021, illuminated by the talent of gymnast Nastya Budiashkina in her first acting effort, and the young director, born in 1994, Elie Grappe. 


FRIDAY, AUG. 19, 9 P.M.
Tandoori Love (Switzerland / Austria / Germany, 2008, 92', v.o.sott.it.), by Oliver Paulus
Sonja is a waitress at the guesthouse "Zum Hirschen" in the Bernese highlands and is happily engaged to Markus, her boss. Rajah works as a cook on the set of a Bollywood film where his art is in the service of Indian film superdiva Priya. Thunderstruck by the beauty of Sonja, whom he met by chance in a supermarket, Rajah manages to get hired as a cook in the guesthouse. His fine cuisine wins everyone over, and the "Zum Hirschen" experiences success
unexpected. After a premiere screening back in 2014, the craziest and funniest comedy in the history of Swiss cinema returns to Venice. A colorful and enthralling mix of Bollywood atmospheres and the Swiss Alps. A film that will make you dance and? die of laughter!


Monte Veritá (Switzerland / Austria / Germany, 2021, 116', v.o.sott.it.), by Stefan Jäger
1906: Hanna, a young mother, wants nothing more than to free herself from her bourgeois role and her social constraints. That is why she takes refuge in the sanatorium of Monte Verità, where, surrounded by the idyllic nature of Ticino and courageously devoting herself to her art, she is soon faced with a lacerating choice. Can she return to her family without giving herself up? An authentic kolossal that exemplarily recounts a unique experience in Swiss history, decades ahead of the social revolutions of the second half of the 20th century. Inspired by the founders of Monte Verità, director Stefan Jäger makes a film that is proudly collective, unfettered and dominated by the power of creativity

Zeus (Portugal, 2017, 115', v.o.sott.it.), by Paulo Filipe Monteiro
The award-winning film, the director's first feature, centers on the figure of Manuel Teixeira Gomes, seventh president of the Portuguese Republic (1923-1925) during the years of the rise of fascism in Portugal, which would later result in the military coup of 1926, paving the way for Salazar's dictatorship. Teixeira Gomes, an intellectual disillusioned with republican politics, in which he strongly believed, decided to take the path of voluntary exile in Algeria, aboard a Dutch ship named Zeus. There he would die 15 years later, not without having continued to participate, albeit from afar, in Portugal's democratic resistance.

Variações (Falling Star - The Life and Music of António Variações, Portugal, 2019, 105', v.o.sott.it.), by João Maia
The film, a tribute to Portugal's first gay icon, has been a major cinematic success in recent years in its homeland. Antonio Variações, an eccentric and brilliant singer-songwriter who died at age 40 in 1984, is still little known in Italy. The film recounts his formative years, from his origins in a farming village to his success as a singer and his tragic death, possibly from AIDS. But it also tells of his tenacious struggle against the prejudices of a country recently emerging from a long dictatorship. His short but resounding career paved the way for many artists to be inspired by him.

TUESDAY, AUG. 23, 9 P.M.
Technoboss (Portugal, 2019, 112', v.o.sott.it.), by João Nicolau
Luís, a divorced man who lives with a cat, is a security technician for offices and hotels, now unable to keep up with technology that is increasingly incomprehensible to him. About to retire as he embarks on his last work assignment, his world-in which music matters so much- finally gives way to imagination, creating imaginary and improbable situations. Technoboss - director João Nicolau's third feature film - is an original road movie, a musical sui generis, full of humor and situations that are as unsettling and surreal as they are funny, though not without a patina of melancholy.

Hab (Cream - Cream, Hungary, 2020, 90', v.o.sott.it.), comedy, by Nóra Lakos
There is a test that apparently proves with 99 percent accuracy whether a person really lives with his or her other half. But the method didn't help Dóra; her 99% great love is marrying someone else. Of course, life can still be sweet. Dóra is a pastry chef who spends her days among pastries, creams and candied cherries, offering her delights to the world of sweet tooth. A paradise that is in danger of closing, however, if Dóra does not find funding soon. She applies
to a family contest by hiring an enterprising bachelor who will pose as her boyfriend in hopes of winning the missing millions. The boy, however, is a womanizer. And, icing on the cake, he is quite charming....

Kilakoltatás (Lo sfratto - Eviction, Hungary, 2022, 85', v.o.sott.it.), comedy, by Máté Bence Fazekas
An enforcer on his first assignment finds himself among anti-eviction activists, dog educators, special teams, cynical speculators... a fast-paced comedy with bittersweet overtones, which depicts metropolitan everyday life and the social divide in an original style. A brilliant first work with characters full of surprising facets.

Legjobb dolgokon bőgni kell (Things Worth Shouting For - Things Worth Weeping For, 2021,84', v.o.sott.it.), comedy/drama, by Cristina Grosan
An extravagant and distracted mother, a perfect and boring boyfriend, a nagging and nosy friend and an aunt... Sometimes, running away from a predefined life and starting over without any plans is the best thing to do. Twenty-four hours of unforeseen events will be enough for 30-year-old Maja to question everything.
