Project requirements

Recognized by the International Olympics Committee, the FICTS Festivals are a circuit of 19 sports media festivals held in cities around the globe. The festival showcases work from sports broadcasters, producers, advertising agencies, national Olympics committees, sports federations and others involved in sports media. Competitive categories include Documentaries, Cinema, Television & New Technologies, Sports Advertising, Sport & Society, Football in Cinema and Television, and Olympic Spirit or Values.

FICTS President Franco Ascani says:

“Our object is to make these events as accessible as possible, therefore all the events are free,” “While events in each of our host cities are locally organized, FICTS is responsible for overall project management and coordination.”
