THE FESTIVAL

ITTV

Why an Italian Festival in LA?

In a time in which everybody is looking for something new and fresh: new stories, formats, talents, Italy is a fertile ground.
Italian television series, especially contents produced for TV and web, represent a growing share of the international audiovisual market.

The Productions

Gomorra, The Young Pope, My Brilliant Friend, Romanzo Criminale, The Medici, Suburra, have intrigued the American and international public at large.

Opening boundaries

All the digital networks have broadened to include an international audience, generating a continuously growing demand for multi-lingual products that go beyond «English-only».

TV is no longer just linear

Streaming and other new, expanding platforms increasingly look for high-quality content.

ITTV promotes Italy as a creative and innovative system for the world’s most important content market.

A work session that combines the best of Italy's creators and producers with the best of America's creators and producers.

The purpose

The idea of a festival came about to facilitate the conversation between those who, in Italy, think, write and produce audiovisual content, with those who, internationally, distribute, are in search of ideas, and/or seek alliances for co-productions.

The festival also offers a social setting for showcasing the latest trends in smartphone and VR headset content implementation.

It will promote also a deep collaboration between international productions, host cities, the tourism industry, and Italian companies who want to successfully affirm their brands, worldwide. 

The event

ITTV Festival will showcase a wide array of Italian productions, and will capture the imagination of American and international veterans of Television series, films for TV, streaming productions, reality shows, web series, and titles in original Italian format that are ready for export.

Launch date was September 19, 2019 - see pictures and video below.
ITTV Festival I The Preview - a program to promote the continued growth of cultural and business synergies between Italy, the U.S. and the rest of the world.

The future editions of the festival will be held in September, during the week before the Emmys, the most important TV awards.
