The Giffoni Film Festival, Italy
The Giffoni Film Festival is an international film festival in Italy with a jury of over 3,000 students from 50 countries. Jurors stay with host families near the festival watching the festival selections, attending workshops, and participating in discussions about the films.
Each summer we send three students selected for their dedication to filmmaking and based on a written application essay. In addition to our responsibilities as jurors, we have been able to include visits to Pompeii and Rome, go shopping in Capri, and swimming in Amalfi. It truly is a trip of a lifetime that greatly impacts our view of the world!
