The First Hermetic International Film Festival

What: The First Hermetic International Film Festival

FHIFF First Hermetic International Film Festival

When: March 2, 2018

Where: Venezia (Venice), Italy – La casa del Cinema, Videoteca Pasinetti, Salizada San Stae, 1990, 30135 Venezia

Where To Stay: Venice Hotels

The FHIFF wants to serve the interests of all those independent productions – both fiction films and documentaries, feature and short lengths, all kind of genre (drama, comedy, sci-fi, fantastic, thriller), narrative as well as experimental and avant-garde, theatrical cinema and video art – that have somehow, in the form or in the content, to do with esotericism and the hermetic “sciences”: from the believer standpoint or rather a critique viewpoint towards the hermetic, occult, esoteric stances, surmises and convictions.

We want to celebrate the Visions: cinematography and Hermetica are both terrifically imaginative visionary cultures!

Furthermore, contemporary esotericism is intimately, and increasingly, connected with popular culture and new media: for this reason, we want to support such a visual fascination, the storylines revolving around neglected knowledges and the frantic search for the divine upon hidden paths of spirituality.

Accepted are productions diffusely or pervasively inspired and influenced by hermetic themes and aesthetics as well as the “proper esoteric” works, which directly and extensively deal with the “realm” of the occult, representing and portraying it.
