The International Film Festival of Pedesina was born in 2016 from an idea by Rondi Luigi with the aim of creating an international film event that included films from various countries around the world. In the same historical period, various realities were born that offer film festivals under a new guise. Thanks to these, Italy, and therefore Pedesina, becomes a place in which to learn about new trends and a new way of understanding cinema.
