Buona festa del papà! We wish all the Papàs and Nonnos a wonderful Father's Day and hope they enjoy being spoilt. We think the ultimate Italian film to share on Father's Day would have to be BICYCLE THIEVES (Ladri di biciclette, 1948), which centres on a poor father's search for his stolen bicycle with his lively son. What is your favourite Italian film to watch with your Papà? ❤️🇮🇹 #IFF20 #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita
Much-loved Italian comedians Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo star in I HATE SUMMER (Odio l’estate) a hilarious story of friendship in which three families accidentally book the same holiday rental and chaos ensues. The film was a box office smash in Italy with over 1 million admissions and we can't wait to share a laugh with you at the Festival soon, heaven knows we all need it! #IFF20 #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita (*Melb dates TBA) 🇮🇹☀️❤️ https://youtu.be/-KWspnTRm8I
We have some exciting news to announce! St Ali Coffee are the new Principal Partner of the Italian Film Festival and the exclusive coffee partner of Palace Cinemas ❤️☕️🇮🇹 The delicious and aptly named Italo Disco blend will be the coffee of choice at Palace Cinemas nationally and we trust you will enjoy the perfect pairing of fine coffee and Italian film at the Festival. Not long to go now! #IFF20 #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita (*Melb dates TBA).
Our Special Presentation of the 2020 Festival is THE GODDESS OF FORTUNE (La dea fortuna), which features on our festival poster (Melb dates tba). Ferzan Ozpetek’s highly anticipated and award-winning new film explores long-term relationships that change over time and features an all-star cast including Stefano Accorsi, Edoardo Leo and Jasmine Trinca. Watch the trailer here 👇 #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita #IFF20 🇮🇹 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWf3Jwlh5kk
One of the Special Presentations of the 2020 Festival is MARTIN EDEN. Bold and dazzling, acclaimed writer/director Pietro Marcello’s award-winning drama provocatively transports Jack London’s 1909 novel about a self-taught and outspoken writer to a pivotal moment in Italy’s pre-war history. Watch the trailer here 👇 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66f3BFtAmZA #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita #IFF20
The Centrepiece selection for the 2020 Festival programme is Marco Bellocchio’s absorbing and multi award-winning crime drama THE TRAITOR (Il traditore). A big winner at the 65th David di Donatello Awards, Pierfrancesco Favino delivers a powerhouse performance as Tommaso Buscetta, the Sicilian Mafia boss-turned-police informer. Watch the trailer here 👇 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQF1uhlQH5s #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita #IFF20
We're very excited to present our 2020 Italian Film Festival poster! The image has been selected from one of our Special Presentations, Ferzan Ozpetek's THE GODDESS OF FORTUNE (La Dea Fortuna). We love the cosiness and warmth of the image and feel that it sums up how a lot of us have been spending this winter, particularly during lockdown! #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita #IFF20
We have some exciting news! The 2020 Italian Film Festival will be back on the big screen nationally* from late September. From the director of DOGMAN and GOMORRAH, Matteo Garrone’s enthralling gothic fairytale PINOCCHIO, starring Roberto Benigni, will open the Festival. Stay tuned for more Festival news and details of our highlights over the coming weeks! #EscapetoItaly #LaDolceVita #IFF20 🍿🇮🇹 *Although we are working towards bringing the Festival to all cities, Melbourne dates may be delayed as we don't know what the future holds in terms of restrictions. We can only promise that as soon as it is safe to do so, we will welcome you with a chance to escape to Italy.
