Profile Information

Performance Discipline
filmmaker, videoartist, performer
Francesca Fini is an interdisciplinary artist focusing on new media, experimental cinema and performance art. She lives and works in Rome. The focus of her work is always the body and its own narrative power, in that border region where performance art and cinema hybridize, creating a new synthesis in the contemporary transmedia art practice.
Among the most important art events in which she took part in the last few years, we would mention the 2011 WRO Biennale in Poland, Currents New Media in Santa Fe, CINEMED Film Festival in Montpellier, NordArt International Art Exhibition, Berlin Directors Lounge and IKONO TV Film Festival in Germany, Videoformes Festival in Clermont Ferrand, Szczecin European Film Festival (SEFF) in Poland, FILE Electronic Language International Festival in Brasil, Athens Videoart Festival, IVHAM New Media Arts Fest and Proyector Festival in Madrid, CYBERFEST and Now&After in Russia, Videoart Yearbook and Robot Festival in Bologna, Instants Video numériques et poétiques in Marseille, MEM Festival at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Japan Media Arts Festival in Tokyo.
In 2012 she has been invited to the first Venice International Performance Art Week, featuring among the others the work of Valie Export, Jan Fabre, Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic and Hermann Nitsch. In 2013 she won the FONLAD Performance Art Residency in Coimbra and was invited in Chicago for the Rapid Pulse Performance Art Festival. In 2014 she has been selected for the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition, organized by the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.
In 2014 and 2016 she was artist in residence at Bob Wilson's Watermill Center in New York. In 2016 she wrote and directed Ophelia did not drown; an experimental feature film based on the hybridization between found-footage (from the national archive Istituto Luce Cinecittà) and original contemporary performative language. The film premiered in New York, Clermont-Ferrand and at Macro Contemporary Museum in Rome.
That same year she wrote and directed Gold - looking for Oz, a 60 minutes experimental documentary produced during an art residency in Jerusalem and financed by Musrara Mix Festival.
She is cited by Treccani Encyclopedia as one of the greatest exponents of cyber-performance in Italy.

Hi Francesca, Thanks for Joining! I love all the photos and video you have posted. The Cry Me video blows me away. Really great use of live video! Big Art Group will be in Rome at the beginning of September to teach a workshop with the Short Theater Festival. Maybe we can meet up then for a quick coffee to say hi.

all the best,
