About Us

The International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT) was created in 1989 in Vienna to reward excellence in the Travel Video Marketing industry.

Since 1989, CIFFT's mission is to reward excellence in Travel video Marketing through a unique and exclusive competition - The Grand Prix CIFFT Circuit.

The circuit brings together the World's Best Tourism Film Festivals in four continents, making this competition the most prestigious awards and recognition initiative for the Travel Video Marketing.

In partnership with our endorsers - UNWTO (World Tourism Organization), ETC (European Travel Commission, CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization), and CATA (Centro America Tourism Association) – CIFFT works to encourage tourism destinations to achieve the excellence in promoting their products, services, and locations using video.
