Trieste Film Festival

International film festival in Trieste.

About

The festival has been the natural result of a long and silent work of study and research on the cinema coming from Central and Eastern European countries completely isolated by their belonging to the Soviet block itself, and by the Western markets' censorship, but nevertheless enlivened by interesting ferments, which have been particularly perceived an felt by a town like Trieste, on the border with the East.

The main purpose of this yearly event of cinema culture is to promote information, debate and mutual cooperation among the operators of the audio-visual production industry and in particular of films in Central and Eastern Europe. Competition sections mainly focuse on those films that feature originality and linguistic innovation, as well as on the productions concentrated on particular aspects and problems of the society and culture of their countries of origin. 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.
