The biggest competition for tourism videos is open for entries until November 30th. In its 35th edition, the CIFFT Circuit brings together 10 tourism film festivals in an outstanding competition to recognize and award the best promotional videos, commercials, and Ads from tourism.
With endless award opportunities, the CIFFT Circuit annually attracts audiovisual productions from accomplished tourism institutions, creative agencies, and production companies from all over the world.
Throughout the year, the submitted works participate in festivals that integrate the circuit spread across four continents: Cannes (France), New York (US), Los Angeles (US), Tortosa (Spain), Zagreb (Croatia), Cape Town (South Africa), Shiga (Japan), Lousã (Portugal), Veliko Gradiste (Serbia) and Amorgos (Greece).
At each circuit stage, the productions are evaluated and awarded by international panels of juries that reunite renowned experts from the Tourism, Marketing, and Audiovisual Industries, including Oscar and Emmy former winners.
Awards obtained in the competition’s stages grant access to the CIFFT Ranking List, the leading global resource for benchmarking creativity and effectiveness in tourism communication, which establishes the World’s Best Tourism Films of the year in five main thematic categories: Tourism Destinations City, Region, and Country, Tourism Services and Tourism Products.
The rankings are based on the award performance in the CIFFT Circuit and allow the entrants to measure the impact of their work.
In 2022, more than 3300 submissions from more than 90 countries competed for the coveted title of the World’s Best Tourism Films. This year’s winners will be awarded at the 34th World Tourism Film Awards gala, in Valencia (Spain), on the 24th of November.
