About

The COFFI Festival Berlin is an interdisciplinary art festival with origins in Italy. It connects creative minds with an italian background and people from other cultures and disciplines.

Birth

COFFI was brought to Berlin in 2014 and comes from Angri (Salerno) in Italy, where it takes place under the name CortOglobo Film Festival Italia as a short film festival since 2004.

COFFI connects creative minds with an italian background and people from other cultures and disciplines.

Evolution

Soon it was clear that the Berlin edition wanted to include more art forms than just film and it grew every year: no matter if art exhibition, performances, music, movies, food, workshops, startups or streetart.

Theme

The working title for 2017 is Contaminazione.

Manifestation

In the meantime we organize little events to get inspired and connected.
