The last Nice festivals (2011) have counted a paying audience of over 120,000 spectators (official box office). Since 1991, Nice has become an awaited event in every city it takes place. Every year,almost every screening is sold out with a high number of tickets sold in advance, proving the high level of loyalty of our audiences, which rewards the constant and intense promotional work achieved by Nice on the international scale. The nature of our audience has also become more and more diversified over the years.
Usa Festival, 2011
In the US, the early audience of 1991 was essentially composed of Italians residing abroad for professional or academic reasons and only a small part counted American students and refined spectators genuinely interested in our culture and society. Over the years, the number of American adults (professionals, intellectuals and artists) and students has drastically increased in our US theaters.
