TO THE INTERNATIONAL
The 17th Edition of the Salento International Film Festival (Siff ), a celebration of the International Independent Cinema
The Salento International Film Festival takes place in the enchanting scenery of Piazza Pisanelli in Tricase, in the heart of Salento, just 50 km from Lecce
Founded in 2004 by Gigi Campanile and organized in Salento, the door to the East, which has always represented a melting pot of cultures and traditions, the SIFF is totally dedicated to independent productions: an innovative formula characterized by the high quality of its content and a detailed research among the various forms of cultural expressions and contemporaryand.
The Salento International Film Festival has become an international event for his concept of “Travelling Festival”, which started in 2010 in London at the Prince Charles Cinema (the only independent cinema in central London). Since then, the “SIFF World Tour” has presented many independent films all over the world in various cities including Zurich, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Hong Kong, Santiago, Chile, Yerevan, Oslo, reykjavik and other cities.
The Cinema is the most powerful tools of
communication and link between cultures and peoples.

SIFF News in the world, and the updates of the next edition.
"Simply ... fantastic!. A beautiful experience. The team although small, focus your energies in order to make each screening a fantastic experience. And let me tell you - the projections are really extraordinary. Salt of the projections, jaw-dropping, with video/audio quality is impeccable. Audiences of the Italian public always crowded and attentive - not only filmmakers. The presentations and Q&A's-thought-out and interesting - not the usual questions discounted. The hospitality and kindness of the organizers always calorosoa and wonderful. We stayed in the same hotel of other filmmakers and so many new friendships were born. The whole experience was phenomenal. Days spent exploring the Salento and the evenings spent watching films and conversing with the people in the square. I highly recommend this hotel.

What They Say About Us
"This is a festival of magic. I didn't know what to expect before you get to Tricase. When I arrived, I found the festival very well organized, the projections in the most unique and ancient that I have ever seen. The films are all in the evening, so during the day you can explore the region of Salento, which is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The best part for me of the SIFF are the people who run it. Gigi, Patrizia, Laura, Lydia and Andreas made us all feel at home."
Michael Dominic - SIFF2019
"This is a fantastic festival and I highly recommend it. I hope to participate again with my new feature film. SIFF can really spread your message and attract your audience. The projection sites are beautiful and the prize-giving ceremony and the closing night in the central square are not to be missed."
