EuropaCinema®, the European Film Festival, was conceived and founded in Rimini in 1984 by Felice Laudadio, the director of the TaorminaFilmFest since 1999. He directed the Venice Film Festival in 1997 and 1998, and was the President of Cinecittà Holding from 1999 to 2002. Due to its immediate extraordinary success, EuropaCinema became at once one of the most famous and known festivals in Europe, considered by producers, distributors and authors as a valid alternative to the Venice Film Festival. In September 1989, the festival finally moved to Viareggio, the ideal setting for such a prestigious and celebrated event.
