Descrizione del Festival: 

Inaugurated as a grassroots non-profit film festival in 2012, the ICFF has, in 5 years, grown to the the largest Italian film festival outside of Italy. Each year, ICFF is proud to present an inspiring showcase of the best new Italian and international cinema.

The ICFF takes place every June during Ontario’s “Italian Heritage Month” and is presented in more Canadian cities each year, including Toronto, Vaughan. Niagara, Hamilton, Montreal and Quebec City.

Using the power of the moving image to both entertain and educate, ICFF defies conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing both the Italian and global communities. All ICFF films are subtitled in English (or French in the Province of Quebec) as most are in Italian or other foreign languages.

Every year the festival presents an international collection of feature films, documentaries and shorts, including premieres, advance screenings and independent films. Screenings are supplemented by guest appearances by filmmakers, actors, authors, academics and other expert speakers and complemented by Q&A sessions.

Festival requirements:

- All submitted films must be made in Italy, or made by Italians, or have Italian content.
- The short films must be max. 10min.
- Promotional films are not eligible (e.g. films promoting tourism, charitable appeals, etc.).
- All submitted films should have been completed after December 2012.
