“CULTURE THROUGH SPORT”: THE FICTS PROGRAM FOR THE 2016 OLYMPIC YEAR

FICTS - Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (chaired by Prof. Franco Ascani Member of IOC Commission for “Culture and Olympic Heritage” and recognized by the International Olympic Committee for which it promotes the values of sports through the images in the 114 Member Countries), which makes use of a thirty years experience in the organization of events with widespread the same characteristics in different Countries of the world, intends to continue, in 2016, the action to promote and to increase the development of the Olympic values ​​and of the sports culture through the real use of the power of the image that stimulates positive emotions.

Thanks to a fruitful cooperation with the IOC and to a qualified participation in international level, we filed 2015 (the year that highlighted the positive role of women in sport) with a flattering balance sheet of the public and critics for the many activities of Federation. The excellent quality of the guests and of participants and new members have brought to light significant prospects for the future given the massive adhesions recorded at the “World FICTS Challenge” Worldwide Championship of Television, Cinema, Communication, Sports Culture and new media coming from 5 Continents that developed in 16 annual stages that in the new year will become 19.

The FICTS, as Federation of Television and Sport Image on the screen, a meeting point for the 1.172 Television Sports Channels, will operate in the Olympic Year 2016, in collaboration with the “Culture and Heritage” Department of the IOC, for the promotion, spread and use of cultural images of the Olympic footages and of the official film (restored) of Olympic Games with the aim to further promote the Olympic culture and its priceless values ​​through its stakeholders.

The aim of my staff, throughout the Federation and 114 joined Countries is to strongly develop in the new year, the knowledge of the Sport Movement to make it a way of life for all segments of the citizens in each country, contributing to change sport in a “global movement at humanity’s service”, based  on the values ​​of universality, tolerance, ethics, peace and fair play which are its priceless heritage.

We will work through an intense program inspired by the “Culture through sport”, as an antidote to the negative aspects, tenaciously defending the integrity of the athletes and sports organizations that, in turn, must act with great determination and with new models of efficient governance.

On behalf of the Federation, which promotes the social and cultural significance of the Olympic and Paralympic Games with the intention of spread a philosophy of life based on the values ​​of education and respect for universal ethical principles of sport and Olympism, I’m sending best wishes for a successful 2016, serenity, solidarity and peace to the whole sports movement, to the world of cinema, television and communication.
