Meetings, seminars, and courses are organised in cooperation with the universities in Sienna, Peruggia, and Rome.

The Italian Film Week programme, organised by a network of Italian Institutes and local partners, presents Italian contemporary film worldwide. In Ljubljana it is co-organised by Slovenian Cinematheque. The first edition took place in May 2018 with films by Paolo Sorrentino, Matteo Garrone and Emanuele Crialese, while in 2019 the production of the latest period 2013n‐2018 is presented (Sorrentino, Virzì, Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza). The guest of the festival Alberto Fasulo, a director and camera presented his long-feature TIR (Slovenian actor in the main role).
