Festival start: 24 June 2022      Festival end: 03 July 2022

Nuovi Mondi Film Festival is the SMALLEST FILM FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD.

It takes place in a very small village in the Southern Italian alps: Valloriate (Cuneo). Only 80 persons lives here.

Our challenge is to create an important cultural event with international guests, great films, meetings, art exhibitions that convince people to come up here, in the mountains, and serve as a development engine for these beautiful but abandoned "high lands".

Only by giving life back to abandoned places it is possible to think of a new ability to design, to imagine and to explore new identities, NEW WORLDS.

2 - Best mountaineering film Award

3 - Audience Award
