You’re in a ghost town, still afflicted by its sudden abandonment centuries ago. Then suddenly, it gets filled with words, images, people, and wonder. That’s the scene that unfolds from within Pentedattilo, a forgotten Italian village that comes alive every year to host an international film festival.
Located in Calabria, the Pentedattilo Film Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience you can’t quite believe is real. After all, how many times have you been given the chance to watch a movie mountainside, surrounded only by ruins dating back to 640 BC?
The festival will take place from September 22-24, and the average attendance is slated to be around 1,000 people. Don’t be afraid to join in on the fun.
