AIFIC seeks to increase the familiarity of the American public with contemporary Italian cinema. Our programs focus on Italian Independent Cinema and Cinema d’auteur with the purpose of engaging the audience in discussions with filmmakers and screenwriters .
The main project that AIFIC sustained was the Italian Film SUDestival in DC bringing to the USA films that participated in the annual Italian Film SUDestival competition born in Puglia, South of Italy ten years ago.
AIFIC sponsors and organizes musical performances, and other educational activities centered on Italian music and American music. AIFIC is the bridge for the younger generations of Italian and American music, who together will transmit and sustain the musical tradition of the two countries.
