CAAM Goes to Italy! The Giffoni Film Festival 2017


In July, students from the Cinematic Arts Academy once again traveled as an international delegate representing the United States of America to the Giffoni Experience Film Festival in Italy.  Our students attended the festival alongside representatives from 39 countries including Belgium, Croatia, South Africa, Australia, Greece, Qatar, Macedonia, China, Brazil, Pakistan, Iraq, and India.  Students served as jurors for the film festival, watching international films each day, participating in discussions, and voting for the festival winners.

Our students stayed with Italian host families, visited Capri, and became friends with the international community.  It was an incredible experience!
