film festival 2017 in Sardinia: Tavolara

Everything began in 1991, when a group of friends wanted to combine the passion for Tavolara and for the seventh art. A special event was born, which today has become an unmissable summer appointment for the cinema enthusiasts. We are talking about the Tavolara Film Festival, which, in 2017, will take place from July 18th to 23rd.


The magic of cinema and sea

Despite the increasing success and interest, the Tavolara Film Festival has remained coherent with its original nature: it is an event that aims to enhance Italian quality cinema, often preferring the non-mainstream films.

The screenings will take place in one of Europe’s largest outdoor arenas. With a program that aims to enhance Sardinian cinema, young filmmakers and the themes of respect and protection of the environment.

(The official program will be available soon.)



This film festival will take place on one of the most beautiful islands in Sardinia. Particularly famous for its sandy beaches: they are authentic, small paradises, where you can spend a few hours of total relaxation. In addition to this, Tavolara offers many opportunities for divers.


How to get there

To get to Tavolara Island, you must take a ferry or a boat from:

  • Porto San Paolo;
  • Olbia;
  • Golfo Aranci.

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