A new film festival
in the biggest Charterhouse of Italy
Padula Certosa Film Festival is an international competition with live screenings open to filmmakers from all over the world. It takes place in the town of Padula (Campania, Italy) and its purpose is to help independent cinematography talents and filmmakers to improve their career.
We accept films of all genres and also shorts. Award-winning films will be screened in public before the award ceremony.
Charterhouse of Padula is the first in Campania, before the construction of Charterhouse S.Martin in Naples and Charterhouse of S.Giacomo in Capri. The complex is located in Padula (Vallo di Diano) and since 1998 is declared World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The Padula Charterhouse Museum also preserves objects which were recovered in the Tanagro Valley, specifically in the areas between Padula and Sala Consilina.
