Francigena Film Festival 2023


International Film Festival of Short Films inspired by "travel" and "journey"

Every people have in their culture the story of a journey. 
"Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita..." thus Dante Alighieri begins his journey.

The Francigena Film Festival, now in its 4th edition, hosts visions of travel and walking from every corner of the world, in a unique opportunity for exchange, sharing, imagination, art and culture. 
A festival full of emotions and new stirrings that has awarded works, directors and actresses/actors from all over the world, offering audiences a unique panorama of contemporary international cinematography.

The fil rouge of the festival is the Via Francigena, with its millenary presence in the territory, as a path that unites, as a path of faith, of cultural and noncultural exchanges, of contaminations, of culture, of art and of men, and finds in San Gimignano its perfect location.

The festival's form of expression is the short film, with its inventiveness and great freedom. 

Also on the program are meetings and interviews with writers, travel bloggers and authorized personnel.

From August 31 to September 2 in the picturesque setting of the open-air arena of the Rocca di Montestaffoli in San Gimignano, with free admission.
