Film is known as the seventh art, but perhaps more than any other it has succeeded in breaking down the “fourth wall” and entering the viewer’s world, whether through the big or small screen, engaging the spectator and creating cultural phenomena that have put down deep roots in society. First digitisation and then the advent of the social media have further changed the ways in which film is used, but also how video content is created. In this context, the development and immense success of YouTube demonstrate that the path from the birth of film to videos as a mass phenomenon has not led to the disappearance of films but has rather meant that they exist alongside a range of increasingly innovative and interactive multimedia content.
In the year marking the 70th anniversary of the permanent workshop represented by Trento Film Festival there was thus another innovation: cooperation between climber Hervé Barmasse and content creator and music producer Tudor Laurini, along with the involvement of a further two content creators well-known in the outdoor sports scene, Nick Pescetto and Omar Martinello, known professionally as Omero, gave rise to the new section “Fourth Wall”. This is dedicated to content creators and open to works produced for YouTube channels, and is presented again this year for its second edition.
