Preceded on Friday 10 March by a live rendering of the soundtrack from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece Psycho, the 41st edition of Bergamo Film Meeting is scheduled to run 11 – 19 March. Over the course of nine days, BFM will propose upwards of 150 films, whether feature films, documentaries or shorts. The BFM team insist they wanted “to be part of a wider movement, of a human chain which breathes fresh life into certain values which - we hope – might catch on once again: we’re talking about respect for diversity, attention for environmental and social complexities, the defence of pluralism, the revival of a European consciousness which gets us back to the fundamental democratic principles of acknowledgement and co-existence”.
