From September 23 to October 2, Il cinema attraverso i grandi festival offers a selection of 60 films from the Locarno, Cannes and Venice festivals, premiering in Rome and the Lazio region.
The event “The major festivals (Cannes, Locarno and Venice) in Rome and Lazio” is back for a new edition in the cinemas of Rome and Lazio, offering the public the opportunity to watch films from the latest international festivals, mostly award winning. This initiative created by the Associazione Nazionale Esercenti Cinematografici (ANEC) (National Association of Cinema Traders), benefits from the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Lazio Region, as well as the collaboration of many partners, including the Cannes Film Festival , the Locarno Festival and the Venice Biennale Foundation.
Nearly 60 cinematographic titles selected from the feature films and short films in competition, out of competition and special events are screened in their original version with Italian subtitles. These films come directly from the 79th edition of the Venice Film Festival, the 75th Locarno Film Festival and the 75th Cannes Film Festival. The event is taking place in twelve cinemas in Rome, and four in the Lazio region to stimulate cinema attendance throughout the region. These screenings are for the most part accompanied by meetings with the director, the cast, or privileged meetings to learn more about the latest trends in contemporary international cinema.
The initiative comes in a particular context, where Italian cinemas have never been so undercrowded due to the pandemic and the restrictions it has long caused. Like the Film Festival, the event intends to represent an opportunity to return to cinema after difficult years.
