The Italian Film Days are back. From Monday to the following Sunday the Italian Embassy, in cooperation with the Italian film production company IMAGO Film Group, will present a festival of Italian movies among the best in their respective genres, for the second consecutive year.
This year’s edition has been expanded with more films, more locations and full subtitles in Greek and in English.
Screenings will take place in Larnaca, Nicosia and Limassol, in partnership with K-Cineplex, Pantheon and Rialto theatres, with free admittance. All films will be introduced by Festival Director Claudio Rossi Massimi, a filmmaker himself.
The official opening will be in Larnaca on Monday in the presence of the Italian Ambassador and local authorities, with the screening of the film Quando Corre Nuvolari, based on the story of the Italian racing legend Tazio Nuvolari. The festival moves to Nicosia on Wednesday and concludes in Limassol on the weekend, with a special closing night on September 15 featuring the film Un Figlio a Tutti i Costi (A Child at all Costs).
Director/actor Fabio Gravina and producer/screenwriter Salvatore Scarico will personally introduce the movie. That same evening, based on the public’s ratings, the most liked film of the festival will be announced.
This second edition of Italian Film Days is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, who have sponsored the subtitles in Greek, the Deputy Ministry of Tourism and the municipalities of Nicosia, Limassol and Larnaca.
Italian Film Days 2019, an initiative of the Embassy of Italy in Cyprus, has received special funding from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the context of the bilateral cultural agreement between Italy and Cyprus. Through this initiative, the Embassy of Italy takes part in a project of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs aimed at showcasing Italian quality film productions abroad.
