Turin Film Festival
From 24 November to 2 December 2017, a showcase for independent filmmakers
Turin Film Festival (TFF) takes place from November 24th to December 2nd, 2017. Started out in 1982 as Festival internazionale Cinema giovani, TFF has become the second largest film festival in Italy, following the Venice Film Festival.
The goal of the festival is to showcase innovative and experimental films, especially by supporting young independent filmmakers.
Since its origin, TFF has been conceived as a urban festival in close contact with the city and its inhabitants, paying particular attention to young people’s needs.
The festival also comprises competitive sections. The categories “Debut films” and “Films about youth” are now part of a single section, “Feature film competition”.
In 1995, TFF established Cipputi Award for the best film about the working world.
