The ninth edition of the Apulia Film Forum was held in Monopoli from October 11th to 13th.
The event is dedicated to Italian and foreign projects looking for co- producers and promotes the exchange of good practices, favoring networking between professionals and directing them towards a choice of locations in Puglia for their films.
