From July 12 to September 30, the international photography festival Cortona On The Move returns to Tuscany. Just as in past years, dozens of exhibitions will be spread throughout the historic center of the city and the Fortezza Medicea del Girifalco. Beyond the exhibitions themselves, the Cortona summer will bring with it numerous events and meet-and-greets with major figures from the industry.
This year’s focus, as instituted by the artistic director, is on women photographers: photojournalists, artists, and documentary makers who share stories of our world—intimate and global narratives that need to be told. These are women who use their hands, minds and eyes in the contemporary photography field and make their voices heard with aplomb. A new development at the 2018 edition is ARENA—Video and Beyond, sponsored by Canon Cinema Eos. This new festival section will feature experimental videos, installations and transmedia storytelling, produced by artists working between photography, film and technology.
