Evaluation Turin is presenting a festival with a focus on young and unconventional cinema. However, not only new international cinema in all its forms (DVD, experimental) is presented, some sections with retrospectives and tributes give the audience an impression of film history as well, and the festival is equally popular with the general public as with film professionals. The festival is a good support for distribution and marketing in Italy and frequently also offers a good international platform for films.
