Festival Dei Popoli
Founded in 1959 by a group of scholars in the humanities, anthropology, sociology, ethnology and mass-media studies, the Festival dei Popoli Institute, a not-for-profit organization, has been active for sixty years in the promotion and study of social documentary cinema.
The association works primarily to organize Italy's leading International Documentary Film Festival, based in Florence. From 2008 to 2010 it has also held an edition in New York (NYDFF - New York Documentary Fim Festival). The Institute has created a vast network of collaborations for the diffusion of documentary culture in Italy and abroad.
Simultaneously, the Festival dei Popoli continues to conserve and digitalize its own Archives (which contains over 25,000 titles, from video to film) and make strides in film training, organizing courses and workshops for documentary filmmakers.
