Partners

The Fiuggi Family Film Festival (FFF) is a film festival entirely dedicated to Families. It takes place every year during the last week of July in Fiuggi. The Festival aims at recognizing as a fact that the biggest successes of the past years have been films dedicated to families. The main characteristic of the Festival is the presence of entire families who spend their holidays in Fiuggi enjoying films and joining the many cultural, sporting, touristic and traditional events offered by the Festival. A couple of meetings every day aim at taking into consideration the main difficulties for families nowadays, from a social, economic and cultural point of view. The five editions of the event have achieved a great audience success. The Fiuggi Family Film Festival will invite, at this occasion, the festival of films for children « Plein la Bobine » that takes place each year in La Bourboule, France.
