FICTS, which makes use of its thirty-year experience in the organization of annual events with the same characteristics in different Countries of the world, promotes and increases the development of the Olympic values and the sports culture through the effective use of the power of the sports image. The main presentation means that FICTS used for that promotion is the “World FICTS Challenge” Worldwide Championship of Cinema and Sport Television, a competition for movies and television productions coming from 5 Continents articulated in 16 annual Phases.
FICTS realizes programs through socio-educational multi-cultural and multi-language projects in order to spread and to disseminate the ideals and the Olympic and Paralympic values in the daily life of the people. The projects, based on the use of images significant sporting and exciting to make the sport a unique communication tool, are inspired to education to the values of sport for all, of loyalty, of respect and of healthy lifestyles.
