The Film and Television National Festival is the first and only event in Italy to combine the world of cinema and television in the same event, through film premières, tv series previews, reunions, projections, competitions, masterclasses, shows, concerts, interviews and roundtables open to the public and spectators.
This unique event on the national territory, manages to combine the various forms of communication through stakeholders of the Italian and international cinema and television. Since 2018, the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities – Cinema Department acknowledged the worth of the Festival in terms of media and communication as well as organisation. It was listed among the top 10 Cinema Festival on Italian soil.
From 2017 to 2019, the Festival has logged an attendance of over 300, 000 people in 3 years.

In Italy still the shorts Superbot and Moustaco were selected to be shown at the Giffoni Film Festival from 16th to 25th July 2020 (Dates TBC).
Giffoni Experience is a creative and organisational structure with many aspects including the Festival, dozens of activities taking place all year long and new innovative projects.
Giffoni Experience is therefore not just a cinema festival but also a unique culture and entertainment organisation, unlike any other cultural event in Italy or abroad. Its uniqueness comes from the idea of evolving and the constant need for innovation.
