FRED Film Radio will be following this 27th edition of the Trieste Film Festival, which will be running in Italy from the 22nd to the 30th January, 2016.
In its 27 years of activity the Association Alpe Adria Cinema and its main project, the Trieste Film Festival, have always stood out for the originality of their initiatives. The festival has analysed and brought to light films and directors that have been forgotten for many years.
The Association Alpe Adria Cinema was founded with the precise aim of promoting and expanding all initiatives in the field of cinema, experimentation and video providing a factor of cultural growth and specific investigations in the area of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the countries on the Mediterranean.
The Trieste Film Festival has acquired increasing importance nationally and internationally, becoming a unique point of reference, above all as regards the film-making of Central and Eastern European countries.
At a national level, the festival plays a leading role, being the only festival to have dealt with the film production of these countries for years and with scrupulous attention.
Beside the official selection and the sidebar programmes, starting from 2010 the festival hosts the co-production meetings “When East Meets West”, which involves more than 120 professionals coming from all over Europe.
