A schedule of activities ranging from morning meetings with authors to afternoon talks and master classes and workshops. A proposal designed to bring everyone, who wants it, closer to the themes of the festival with an inclusive and open approach. The Dialogato Festival is the gyro compass with which to orient oneself and delve into the festival’s contents, from the surface to the depths of the lake.

A special three-day program dedicated to film professionals during Lago Film Fest. Networking moments, market opportunities, pitches, talks, panels, and one-on-one meetings to make the B.I.D. experience even more comprehensive.
