The history of the Villerupt Italian Film Festival

The first edition of the Villerupt Italian Film Festival took place in 1976, on the initiative of a small group of young Italian film enthusiasts. In the past, the Villerupt region of Lorraine (France ) had been home to many Italian migrants, who had settled there to work in the mining industry.

For this first edition, the film festival was hosted by the Maison des Jeunes et de la Culture in Villerupt. For its grand premiere, the festival presented some twenty Italian films in their original version with French subtitles. The festival lasted five days.

But due to the Italian film crisis and organizational constraints, the festival was discontinued in 1983. It wasn't until 1998 that it was revived. Today, the Villerupt Italian Film Festival is an unmissable event for film buffs in the Greater Region.

Over 100 volunteers help to organize and run the event every year. Reserve your pass now or sign up as a volunteer.
