Festival start: 27 September 2024      Festival end: 08 October 2024

The 10th edition of PerSo – Perugia Social Film Festival will take place in Perugia from 27 to 29 September and from 3 to 8 October 2024.

"Concept". The Festival describes the complexity of our world through films and stories that talk about us and that are touching, deep and inspiring. Important and high-quality movies are selected from the most famous international festivals and are presented by their authors and protagonists. PerSo is a festival where the audience and the artists, well-known directors and young emerging ones, can meet and share experiences. It is a festival of dialogue about cinema, social issues, artistic research, divulgation and entertainment.

"The Festival at a glance". One city, four movie theatres, six competition categories, the PerSo Lab aimed to professionally develop young film-makers and support new productions, the PerSo Award (Italian premieres) and the Masterpieces (the best documentaries of the year), the movies shown at the Perugia-Capanne prison, the events dedicated to the world of psychiatry and sound documentaries, the PerSo Off, that refers to concerts, events and meetings.

Each edition offers more than 50 free entry events and welcomes 70 guests: directors, producers, judges, celebrities, staff members and volunteers.

PerSo FF is organised by RealMente Ngo, in collaboration with Foundation “La Città del Sole” – Onlus, in the fascinating medieval city of Perugia.
