The catalogue

The films of FESCAAAL travel all over Italy thanks to the sales activity. It is possible to rent or consult the titles in the COEmedia Distribuzione Cinema Catalogue to organise screenings, reviews, meetings and events or for study or research purposes. We also advise on the inclusion of film and cultural initiatives in partnership projects.

A rich catalogue – unique in Italy – with more than 80 titles from Africa, Asia, Latin America including feature films and short fiction and documentaries in original language with Italian subtitles, dealing with various themes including: migration, comparing cultures, history and geopolitics, globalisation, food sustainability and intercultural dialogue.

The films are available for rental for public screenings or home video and are suitable for World Citizenship Education interventions in schools or other contexts.

In recent years, COE has also included in its catalogue films by Italian directors shot on the three continents or dealing with cultures and issues related to immigration and interculturalism.
