Profile

The Italian Cultural Centre Wales is a UK-registered charity organisation based in Cardiff since 2015. It acts as an active space to display a range of Italian cultural activities and events including cinema, music, visual arts, poetry and literature. It is also a hub for Italians who live, have lived or are temporarily living, in Wales.
The ICCW explores and encourages new connections between Italy, Wales and Europe by organising public events, concerts, readings, exhibitions, and screenings with an Italian, Welsh and transnational scope and interest.

Each November the ICCW organises the very successful Italian Film Festival Cardiff which will see its fourth edition in 2018. The Italian Film Festival Cardiff brings to the screens of Wales a dynamic and diverse portrait of contemporary Italy with its beauty, complexity and contradictions. The selection of cutting edge films feature all genres of Italian cinematography with a strong emphasis on new narrative forms and independent productions. During the past three years the Festival has become a lively space for directors, actors and producers from both sides of the Channel. Wales has always had an international aspect to its culture and a long tradition of being open to the world. The Italian Film Festival Cardiff aspires to be a part of Wales’ increasingly international artistic profile.
