In 1989 Rudolf Kammel and Alexander V. Kammel believed that audiovisual for tourism will play a fundamental role in promoting destinations in the future. So they decided to invite the most prestigious tourism film festivals directors of that time to form a festival committee, the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT).
Currently with 18 tourism film festivals around the world, the Grand Prix CIFFT Circuit aims to promote excellence in audiovisual tourism promotion and rewards and recognizes the best films produced to promote a destination or a tourism product.
The Grand Prix CIFFT Circuit is a global competition open to any kind of audiovisual communication, from promotional films to social media videos, commercials to videos or advertising campaigns, from travel videos to documentaries or reports, whenever the theme focuses on the promotion of tourism.
