  • Cinema Italia SF presents a film series dedicated to Italian actor, director, and screenwriter Ugo Tognazzi. The program, produced by LUCE CINECITTA in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in San Francisco, will be shown on April 27th in San Francisco’s Castro Theatre. It will feature a selection of five films and a themed party.
  • Paola Randi is not your typical Italian director. She discovered her passion for the movie industry when she was over 30 and no major cinema school would have enrolled her, she is from Milan “where working in cinema is considered for aliens only”, she is a woman, and for her second directorial feature, she chose sci-fi, a very unusual genre for Italian cinema. After all, as she explained, “I was told that I would have failed with my second movie like everybody does, especially when you first film did well. Well, I thought, if this is going to be my last movie, I’d rather be bold.”

    Interview with the actress and director who presented in New York her second directorial effort, Euphoria. She talks about women and cinema in Italy and confides a desire: winning one day the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival in France. "It took me a long time to do what I wanted to do," she says, "not because I found it difficult as a woman. The problem came from within: I would call it self-censorship."

    Monica Vitti enchanted cinema and the public. She is perhaps the last great Italian diva, an actress who provoked sympathy and emotion in both cinephiles and the general public. She united the two separate souls of Italian film, auteurist cinema and la Commedia all’italiana.

    From June 1-7 at the Film Society Lincoln Center, the upcoming festival, in its 17th edition, will once again put the spotlight on contemporary Italian films, featuring eight North American and six New York premieres.
  • In early February, the Italian Cultural Institute in LA will host "Filming on Italy" to promote the country as a prime filming location, featuring special guests Oliver Stone and Riccardo Scamarcio, along with exclusive film screenings.
  • Nanni Moretti’s new film Mia Madre, starring the iconic Italian actress Margherita Buy, opens in North American theaters. Italian master filmmaker brings us back to the lyrical minimalism of La stanza del figlio – The Son’s Room (Cannes Palme d’Or winner), with Mia Madre, the story of a director shooting a political film while coping with her mother’s terminal condition.
  • Every year, Open Roads, co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Istituto Luce Cinecittà, offers a diverse and extensive experience of contemporary Italian cinema, and that's not just a treat for the audience but it's a special opportunity for filmmakers alike that get a chance to meet with US distributors, in case their films have not found distribution yet, with local press and with fellow Italian or international filmmakers and artists of all sorts.
