Created in 2000, the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) has rapidly become an unmissable event for film lovers. Its prestigious programme has ensured it a national and international presence. This event is mainly dedicated to one genre — that is fantasy, or fantastic films. Asian cinema and digital creation are the two additional topics that complete the picture.
The encompassing, pluridisciplinary vision that defines the fantastic films selected at the NIFFF have made the festival an internationally recognised centre of excellence and innovation. This has allowed us to develop an innovative approach to the cinema of the imagination.
The NIFFF possesses a strong and unique identity in Switzerland and everywhere else. The festival and its 3 labels — NIFFF EXTENDED “the future of cinema”, NIFFF INVASION “a pluridisciplinary approach to fantasy for everyone”, and NIFFF ON TOUR “visionary worlds of fiction” have become staples for industry professionals, audiences and the next generation of Swiss filmmakers alike.
