The Festival takes place on the breathtaking Ventotene Island, a unique and magical place situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea between Rome and Naples. This event brings to the island films authors and actors who made and continue making the Italian and the International cinema great. Given the significant social role played by the Ventotene Film Festival on the island, an International Contest of Movies and Documentaries exploring the themes of Europe, law abidance, active citizenship, democracy, and racial integration, was launched, in 2016.
The islands of Ventotene and S. Stefano are considered two small pearls in the southern Tyrrhenian Sea. These islands are a true heritage of culture, history, and nature and to preserve, conserve and give everyone in the future the opportunity to visit and learn about these unique places, they became a “State Natural Reserve” and “Marine Protected Area.”
The Ventotene Film Festival wants to raise awareness about the importance of the environment we live in and the need to protect it. For this reason, starting from this year, a new category called “Green Path” will be added to the Open Frontiers Contest. The category includes National and International Films and Documentaries exploring the themes of environmental sustainability from a wide range of angles and perspectives especially the works that convey deep respect and appreciation for the marine environments and those which deal with the safeguards of the ecosystem.
