Contemporary art comes to the big screen at this multifaceted cinema festival. Active in Florence since 2008, Lo Schermo dell’Arte spotlights films old and new, promotes training projects and artist residencies and collaborates with local, regional and international institutions to bring exciting installations and performances to the city. The 10th edition opens with the inauguration of Directing the Real: Artists’ Films and Video in the 2010s, an exhibition featuring 20 video works by young, emerging artists (6pm, November 14, Galleria delle Carrozze, Palazzo Medici Riccardi). Buzzworthy guest of honor is Egyptian visual artist and musician Hassan Khan, recipient of the Silver Lion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Khan will give a lecture on his creative process (3.45pm, November 16, Cango Cantieri Goldonetta) and will be present for screenings of two of his key works, Jewel and Muslimgauze RIP (6pm, November 16, La Compagnia).
