STEFANO BENNI'S STORIES TURNED INTO COMICS
3 • 15 MARCH
AT FESTIVAL
Flashfumetto - City of Bologna’s website dedicated to comic - renews his yearly contest addressed to young authors.
After the lucky trilogy dedicated to experimental comic and followed by the publication of Flashfumetto.it – Giovani in concorso (Comma 22), the website is now calling for submissions to its new contest We are glad to have you with us. Stefano Benni’s stories turned into comics.
The initiative is addressed to all Italian young people between the age of 15 and 35 (deadline: February 16, 2011), and has the purpose to draw attention on new generation talents and support their creativity.
This year Flashfumetto contest will work on the relationship between literature and comic  - one of the central issues of Bilbolbul fifth edition – consolidating this way its partnership with the festival.
Participants will be asked to cope with Bologna-born writer Stefano Benni’s literary production, choosing one of the author’s short stories from Il bar sotto il mare (Feltrinelli, 1987), L’ultima lacrima (Feltrinelli, 1994) or La grammatical di Dio (Feltrinelli, 1987), and turning it into comics. Drawers will be pretty free face the text the way they prefer: sticking to it, rereading it or using a particular character or situation found in the story to invent a new script.
Like every year, BilBolBul houses the exhibition of the best artworks submitted within Flashfumetto contest and selected by a jury of experts. The most interesting works will be prized during the opening of the exhibition.
Furthermore, one of the participants might be the selected winner of “Premio Iceberg – Giovani Artisti a Bologna” award, and receive a 1500 euros bursary that will permit him or her to join Écla - écrit cinéma livre audiovisuel in Bordeaux for a period artistic and creative stay.
The initiative We are glad to have you with us. Stefano Benni’s stories turned into comics is part of City of Bologna Area Vivivbilità - Progetto Giovani project, within the ambit of Piani Locali Giovani – Città Metropolitane, promoted and financed by Dipartimento della Gioventù – presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, in partnership with Anci – Associazione Nazionale Comuni Italiani.
