Ischia Film Festival

Ischia Film Festival is an international competition dedicated to Locations. It hosts and awards those films which focus their interest and enphasize the places in which they are set. The festival also hosts conferences and workshops about Film Location and Product Placement.


Ischia Film Festival

Festival presentation: 
Ischia Film Festival is the heart of the project “Cinema & Territory’’ created by Michelangelo Messina for the no-profit organization Association Art Movie & Music, whose purpose is to spread among a vast audience unedited audio-visual works that highlight the cultural identity of a place through the movie screening and locations.
Every year the festival presents a selection of films from all over the world: all of them emphasize the cultural identity or the landscape's features of a certain territory through the audiovisual narration. A jury of personages of the film industry awards the best films among the ones selected for the official competition. 
During the Festival week, in addition to the competition's film screenings, there is a special section about "denied location" and there also are omages to important figures of the international film industry.
