Florence's People Festival, or Festival dei Popoli, is a long-established international event held at a number of venues, offering a rich programme of film documentaries on contemporary topics.
A broad panorama of documentary cinema explores people and their countries, portraits of men and women and stories from all over the globe.

By encouraging debate and confrontation, analysis and dialogue, the festival allows for public interaction with experts in the field, including film-makers and key personalities in showbiz.

Paying tribute to Nanook of the North, a 1922 silent documentary film by Robert J Flaherty, the 2008 edition is entitled "Nanook's Legacy" and offers an insight into the development of the genre.
