IMDb qualifier’s Florence Film Awards is a monthly and annual international film festival with monthly live screenings.

Florence is the city of the Art and we think that films are the highest point of the Art. Our mission is to promote films, and be another step up in the filmmakers' careers.
Each month, our Jury will award the best films.

A selection of short films will be screened every month in Florence at "Immagina Film School".
