The theme of first edition, Demons, aims to investigate all the darkest derivations of the human condition, from territorial to social or psychological problems, giving a transversal point of view on the criticalities of the contemporary world.

The theme “Demons” is declined in 100 photo-books that will be exhibited in 5 different expo. Each expo will also host a chapter of 8814, experimental web-series of a dystopian-surreal genre, created by Luca Baioni. There will also be Mojo, an exhibition that will inhabit the spaces of the festival and that will accompany the visitor along the way. Mojo, the latest editorial product of Yogurt Magazine, is a multi-author narrative where various international authors will represent the theme of the unknown, the unexpected and the disturbing.
