Festival 2022
From 28 April to 08 May 2022
 
 
 
One of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.

The 2022 edition of ORLANDO was born from an open reflection on what it means to make a change, on the privilege and responsibility that each of us has in contributing to a cultural revolution. We live a time when all beliefs have collapsed, but we have the opportunity to build a new balance, both personal and social, that can reduce power disparities and discrimination, in an intersectional perspective.  We want to start from desire and emotions to draw a new map of relationships. We want to look for new alliances, structures and contents, to trace a path that will continue in 2023, the year of the 10th anniversary of the Festival and of Bergamo-Brescia as joint Italian Capitals of Culture.
We are amid a metamorphosis and look forward to seeking a new path together with you. We look forward to seeing you at ORLANDO 2022.

ORLANDO is an international queer festival that features cinema, dance and theatre. It is addressed towards a broad, varied audience and characterized by its ironic, inclusive and welcoming approach. Our aim is to experience culture, overcome borders by broadening possibilities of expression and knowledge through multiple visions of reality. We want to raise a generation that is more liberated, and dream of a society that is more sensitive to equal opportunities, minority rights, gender violence and widen the possibilities of expression. We want a society that is brave and willing to explore otherness. During the course of nine days we bring valuable artistic experiences to Bergamo by transforming the city through a rich programme of films, shows, encounters, workshops and events thanks to our network of relations, cultural exchanges as well as national and international partnerships. The Festival and the association are named after Virginia Woolf’s novel. Her work clearly proves how cultural, gender, ethnic and affective orientation differences are indispensable to establish a cultural identity that is plural, alive and constantly transforming.
