Le programme de la 17e Fête du Cinéma de Rome est annoncé

– La nouvelle directrice du festival, Paola Malanga, réintroduit sa compétition, avec 130 titres en tout au programme du 13 au 23 octobre

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Popular and experimental films, a section for new talent, resurgent genres such as westerns and romantic comedies, a widespread female presence (7 of the 16 films in competition are directed by women) and so much “wanted and deserved” Italian cinema. This is how Paola Malanga – the festival’s new artistic director who is taking up the baton after Antonio Monda’s seven years at the helm of the event, which is now reaching its 17th edition – presented her first ever Rome Film Fest. New sections but, most importantly, the return of an international competition “which everyone wanted” characterise the new direction of the festival, which is set to unfold between 13 and 23 October this year, at the Parco della Musica Auditorium and on 28 screens throughout the city, including the Nuovo Sacher Cinema belonging to Nanni Moretti, who will compose his own selection of films to promote from the festival.
