AICFF Mission
Through the universal language of taste and film the AICFF aims to showcase inspirational stories about food and gastronomy from all over the world.

We encourage film makers to diversify, broaden and enrich our perspective and the way we approach food as a social experience. We invite them to engage in the Gastronomy Days creative community. Hors d’oeuvre short films section is an integral part of the AICFF architecture and together with the international feature films section aims to enrich the festival’s experience.

In the forthcoming Gastronomy Days and the second AICFF we welcome creators to our first gathering in order for all of us to get to know each other and harvest the seeds of the collective creativity.

We are eager to taste a spoonful of inspiration. Take part in.
