This  festival has had a great impact in the history of entertainment and culture, not only in Italy, and it has developed a high reputation internationally. Every year the festival attracts 100,000 guests, directors, producers, and movie stars.

The Giffoni Film Festival was born in 1971 from a Claudio Gubitosi idea: promoting and developing cinema for young people, elevating it from the marginal position it had back in those days, and leading it where it belongs:  a high quality genre capable of “penetrating” the market.
