The Festival

The eighteenth edition of the Montecarlo Film Festival will be held from May 31st to June 5th 2021
Ezio Greggio
(President of MCFF)

The International Monte Carlo Film Festival is entirely dedicated to comedy movies. The festival’s aim is the promotion and the diffusion of the various comedy genres presented through the screening of movie previews, meetings with comedy experts, master classes, seminars and more.

The festival’s movie projections will be divided in two main sections:

Official Selection: This represents the festival’s main screening session, with the projection of all movies in competition;

Gala Screenings:  The section will present a limited number of films out of competition selected from the best comedy productions of the year. Films, which have already been presented in other festivals, can be selected for the competition as long as they have not won official awards in festivals with a similar scope as the Monte-Carlo Film Festival.
