In the last decade, Italian cinema has witnessed its rebirth both on the artistic and on the producing level, which –consequently- allowed young authors, directors and actors and renowned actors who found the right inspiration to venture in film making, to bloom with astonishing results.
From hence, the will to divulge Italian contemporary cinema abroad trhough Italy on the Screen today. The overwhelming welcome of the past two years did not come much as a surprise, as the US –and especially New York- love Italian cinema and recognizes quality.
For us, it is a great thrill, besides one the festival’s objectives, to favor the reunion between the vast amount of Italian American culture here in New York –now surely more handed down than witnessed- and contemporary Italy, to enable the encounter between storytelling and tradition, the history of Italian cinema and the today’s reality, with strength and current hardships.
Thanks to the contribution from the Ministry of Cultural Assets and Activities – Cinema’s General Direction, with support from the Italian Consulates in New York and Miami, Roma Lazio Film Commission, in collaboration with Rai Cinema, Italian Heritage and Culture Commitee of New York, Stony Brook University, New York University, Istituto Italiano di Cultura di New York, Miami Beach Cinematheque, with the patronage of 2018 European year of Cultural Hertiage, we bring –once again- in New York the best Italian contemporary film productions.
