FILM FESTIVAL WITH LIVE SCREENINGS !!!

Welcome back to the 6th edition!

In March 2019, the sixth edition of the Torino Underground Cinefest, an international film festival of independent cinema created and directed by the Italian director Mauro Russo Rouge, will return.

In the last edition 25 to 27 March 2018 the festival has recorded a resounding success with the public. Almost 2,000 spectators in 3 days of event and a significant media visibility through all channels (TV, radio, press and magazines / portals / online blogs). The fifth edition obtained the success even in several Italian regions and not just in Piedmont: this is an aspect that allows the festival to consider itself as a national event.

For its sixth edition, the festival event will last for five days, to offer more time for insights with the authors.

The VI TUC will be held in a very important location for the Turin “Cinema” universe, which is located in the heart of the city, in Piazza Vittorio Veneto 5, at the marvelous Cinema Classico.

Cash prizes are awarded for the best feature film and for the best short film. Also, special awards will be assigned to: best director, best actor, best actress, best photography, best sound designer. It there will be an audience award and mentions assigned by our media partners.

The festival counts on the help of media-partnerships and cultural partners in the area.
“It is obvious that art cannot teach anyone anything, since in four thousand years humanity has learnt nothing at all.”
― Andrei Tarkovsky

  • It was great to have the 15th award for INVISIBLE at Torino, the Audience Award and also a very interesting QA after the sold out screening.
    TUC is a vivid festival from people that really love cinema. A great team and also a young audience, in an exceptional city like Torino.
