The appointment with the MEDFILM Festival 2022 is renewed, the first in Italy dedicated to the cinema of the Mediterranean, as well as the longest-lived in the capital. The Festival, now in its 28th edition, presents a rich program of films, professional meetings, focuses and special events. The important event is enriched by professional meetings, masterclasses in universities, meetings with young authors and masters of cinema, literature and in-depth forums on burning issues of our time.
Born in 1995 on the occasion of the Centenary of Cinema and the Barcelona Declaration, the Festival is the only Italian event specializing in the spreading of the Mediterranean and European cinema. The purposes of the event have always been the protection of human rights and intercultural dialogue; the education and training of young people in the socio-cultural field; the fight against racism and xenophobia; the promotion and the spreading of European and Mediterranean culture. All these elements make the Festival a favorite place for cultural and productive dialogue between Italy and the countries of the Euro-Mediterranean area.
