Gaia International Film Festival is the place to talk about food and its territories, societies and peoples, traditions and memory, culture ...
A Festival that aims to promote the territorial identities of the whole world and to enhance their cultures and typicality through the cinematic narration of food and wine traditions.

At the same time, the Festival aims to promote and enhance the talents of national and international independent cinema to allow them a fruitful exchange of experiences, direct comparison with professionals in the sector and the expansion of skills, as well as to increase the possibility of making themselves known from a wider audience.

The competition is divided into the following sections:

1. FOOD, TERRITORIES AND SOCIETY
Food through the narration of the territorial identities in which it is sought, produced, transformed and the relationship of companies with production, research and transformation of food products; peoples, traditions, memory, culture ... awareness of the fragility of the planet and the need to preserve its balance through responsible individual and collective behaviors in the use of food resources.
