The Festa di Cinema del Reale is dedicated to the documentary genre and it is a unique showcase, presenting the most experimental, curious and inventive cinema that can be seen and heard. It encompasses four days of screenings, exhibitions, installations, meetings, seminars and live music. The event, held in July in the heart of Salento, aims to support and promote narratives of reality. Every year, the Festival offers 20 hours of screenings and about 60 video installations with various expressive forms: personal diaries, historical inquiries, classic narratives, fragmented tales and family stories. Some of the guests who have participated in the event over the years include: Agnes Varda, Cecilia Mangini, Letizia Battaglia, Pietro Marcello, Helen Mirren, William Klein and Taylor Hackford.
