TAORMINA FILM FESTIVAL 2015

 

 

 Taormina Film Fest, a historic film festival, and Italy’s oldest, began in 1955.

It is a competitive event screening film previews, independent features, documentaries, shorts and tributes to filmmakers of the past.

The Taormina Film Fest offers a unique occasion for film professionals and aficionados to view, discuss and appreciate both Sicilian and international films.

The natural setting offers three screening areas, with one exclusively dedicated to acclaimed Mediterranean and Sicilian short films.

Each year, one country is invited as guest of honour, the films of which are always much anticipated.

Fringe programmes include cinema workshops and the opportunity for budding talents to meet with young actors in a casual environment.

The open air screenings held in the historic Taormina Arte amphitheatre, built in 290 BC, lend this event a classy touch.

JUNE 14 – 21, 2015

An integral part of Taormina Arte, the town’s well-established summerlong culture fest, the film festival is an annual celebration of the best in the film world and offers a week packed with exclusive premieres, Hollywood glamour and VIP luxury.

Elite evening screenings take place at Taormina’s beautiful two-thousand-year-old Greek theatre (with an immense ocean backdrop) and daily cocktail receptions are held on the terrace of the Grand Hotel Timeo for the festival’s most elite guests.

The festival also includes a prestigious awards ceremony, where stars of cinema accept awards for iconic performances and outstanding achievements in film (2010 winners included Robert de Niro and Colin Firth).

This is the perfect event through which to enjoy Taormina – with cutting-edge art and culture in a breathtaking setting, chock-full of VIP glitz and elegance.
