APA – Audiovisual Producers Association collaborates since 2019 with the G.A.F.F. Association for the project "Visionarie" event of reflection and debate on the world of women’s creativity, conceived and directed by the expert lawyer of copyright Giuliana Aliberti. Now in its second edition "VISIONARIE 2020 - Women between cinema, television and storytelling" promotes a call addressed to students of the major national schools for the collection of scripts for original subjects of TV series, documentaries, short films and feature films that tell the female universe with its contradictions and forces. Visionarie is a format dedicated to the role of women protagonists of the world of cinema, audiovisual and literature. Through meetings, screenings, conferences and moments of interaction with the public and in the presence of directors, screenwriters, actresses, producers, writers together, they discuss the "power" of the female gaze, to represent artistic and cinematographic languages, in a fruitful intergenerational exchange that also involves teachers and the public of Schools, Academies and Universities of Cinema. The collected texts are examined by a Scientific Committee composed of some of the most important women in the cultural and audiovisual sector: Gloria Malatesta, Anna Negri, Chiara Sbarigia (GD of APA), Gabriella Gallozzi, Marilena Citelli Francese and representatives of WIFTMI - Women in Film Television-Media Italia and DISSENSO COMUNE.
