The Fifth Edition of the Bif&st – Bari International Film Festival will take place from 5th to 12th April, 2014. Ettore Scola is President of the Bif&st, which is created and directed by Felice Laudadio.
The 8 days of the kermesse will showcase 332 different events, out of which 238 screenings. 54 of these are for free, in particular those of the Tribute dedicated to Gian Maria Volonté, that sums up 75 events altogether.
141 feature films, 44 short movies, 40 documentary films and 14 special events (among the competing and non competing sections, including reruns and retrospectives), will be screened and presented at the Teatro Petruzzelli and 11 other cinema halls, that will also host exhibitions, round tables and workshops.
The net cost of this Grand Celebration of Cinema – that got 70’000 spectators participating to the 402 events of the 2013 edition, is but a little over one million euro.
