Although the Festival is so young, is gaining more and more prestige into the international cinematic overview, and every year restarts with its typical spirit of innovation.

However, “Cinema” is not just about films, but also exhibitions and meetings with international guests who want to deepen everything that shines through the films on exhibition, and who want to talk about cinema not as entertainment only, but as one of many ways to make art.

The Festival is divided into five sections, each one dedicated to a particular slice of film industry: Première e Cinema 2008, the first two sections which both represent the center of the festival because count 14 international films previews; Extra, which plans the presentation and promotion of novelties, to satisfy who’s looking for something different; Alice nella città  (‘Alice in the city’) an international selection of works dedicated to cinema made for and by young people; Occhio sul mondo – Focus (‘An eye on World’), absolutely the unique novelty of this year, is a section dedicated to art, music, show and most of all to the cinema of a specific country’s culture: this year the focus is on Brazil.
