The first “Puglia Food Film Fest 2015” aims to be an exhibition of the “territorio Pugliese” and a showcase for all the region’s special products. The event takes place in Bari on Oct. 6 and 7.

The festival is seen as a marketing tool to attract young people, tourists and Italian and international business people by stimulating their interest in discovering and experiencing Puglia in every season of the year.

“Puglia Food Film Fest 2015,” through audiovisual works, forums, meetings and tastings, creates a close link between the food industry and the film industry. The film festival, in identifies issues related to agriculture as its central theme, through short films, documentaries and animated films from around the world. Forums and meetings of experienced professionals, academics and researchers, as well as manufacturers and operators in the food industry, offer highly scientific training and education. These sessions will be enhanced by tastings of typical Pugliese foods and wines to promote tourism and agribusiness in Puglia.
