Festival del cinema di Tavolara 2016

Imagine the scene: Italian cinema, less-known art films, one of the most beautiful island of Italy (and not only of Italy), several guest stars. This is the 2016 edition of Festival del cinema di Tavolara: it will take place from July 11th to 17th.


The festival

The first edition took place in 1991, thanks to a group of friends. Now, the Festival del cinema di Tavolara is one of the most important Sardinian film festivals, a cultural event that, every year, attracts film fans from all over Italy.

The success of this event belongs to a program that supports Sardinian cinema and young directors. Belongs to the emphasis on the respect and protection of the environment.


The island

  • Near the small port of the island there are several small beaches: here you can spend a very relaxing day.
  • The hiking path towards the peak of the island is one of the best things to do. And, from the top, the view is amazing.
  • Tavolara is a great place for diving: some of the best dive sites are punta Filasca, cala Corsi, Frana dei mufloni, Frana del faro, Sa Mama Chiatta, Grotta del Satana.


How to get there

To get to Tavolara Island, you have to take a ferry from one of these three towns:

  • Porto San Paolo
  • Olbia
  • Golfo Aranci

The journey takes twenty minutes from Porto San Paolo, one hour from Golfo Aranci, one hour and thirty minutes from Olbia.
