Giornate degli Autori was born in 2004, as an independent event on the fringes of the Venice Film Festival, modeled on the prestigious Directors' Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival and promoted by the associations of Italian film directors and authors.
The aim of the event is to draw attention to high quality cinema, without any kind of restriction, with special care for innovation, research, originality and independence. These are all features of the 12 films selected as well as being reflected in the special events held during the Days in the Villa degli Autori.
