Ischia Film Festival 2019

The Ischia film festival was born in 2003 when it had the name "Foreign Film Festival". The art directors of the festival are Michelangelo Messina and Boris Sollazzo. 
From June 29th to July 6th, the 17th edition will take place in the spectacular location of the Castello Aragonese.
The festival aims to give prestige to the locations of the films by conferring artistic recognition to the extraordinary works, directors, to the directors of the photography and set designers, who enhance Italian and foreign destinations by increasing the phenomenon of cine tourism.
The cinema in fact, especially in the last decades, has been a powerful means for popular destinations as well as for unknown but precious centers and villages to increase their appeal and fame through the national and international distribution.

After the Negroni week, Campari decided to sponsor the Ischia Film Festival to strengthen its bond with the big screen. Campari created his image inspired by the traditional Italian aperitif and the lifestyle of our beautiful country.
Following are the words of Lorenzo Sironi, Senior Marketing Director of Campari Italy “Taking part in this initiative is a source of great pride for us. The cinema represents one of the most important aspects as it has great communicative power, essential for a brand like ours.
Combining this strong bond with the safeguard and the enhancement of the Italian territory, our satisfaction increases even more”.

We, therefore, invite you to not miss the fantastic Campari aperitif at the Castello Cocktail Area "Terrazza Caffetteria" and the "Terrazza degli Ulivi" Dinner Area.
