International Documentary Film Festival on Art and Architecture

The Festival for five editions, from 2013 to 2017, took place at the Casa dell'Architettura, as part of the Rome Film Festival and from the beginning it was promoted and supported by the Scientific Technical Committee and strongly desired by its President, Alfonso Giancotti, who has finished his term this year. Therefore, a five-year cycle ended, during which the Festival has grown, also obtaining important institutional awards, and has become a consolidated reality, followed and awaited by an increasingly public. At the moment we are working on a new version of our Festival. We'll keep you updated by our website as soon as possible.
