Scotland’s annual showcase of Italian cinema returns with a diverse selection of some of the best films of the past twelve months. As ever, the Festival celebrates the work of both established auteurs as well as emerging directors and this year’s programme takes audiences from Rome to Calabria, Trieste to Sicily, Sardinia to Naples. We have family dramas, atmospheric noirs, dazzling comic book adventures, neo-westerns, historical biopics, offbeat fables and much more. Most of the titles are either UK or Scottish premieres, including our opening film, Michelangelo Frammartino’s Il Buco.

The retrospective screenings include a tribute to the late Italian film icon Monica Vitti and a centenary celebration of the great political filmmaker Francesco Rosi.

The Italian Film Festival is programmed by Dr Pasquale Iannone - who will introduce selected screenings – and is supported by Creative Scotland and the Italian Institute of Culture.
