Italian Film Week at the VIFF Centre 🇮🇹

Our Italian Film Week features 14 films, seven new releases, seven classics from masters like Fellini, Visconti, De Sica and Monicelli, showing here in restored 4K digital prints. There’s a spotlight on actor Toni Servillo, who stars in four of this year’s selection, including the poignant prison drama The Inner Cage and a biopic about the legendary comic actor Eduardo Scarpetta, The King of Laughter, as well as his landmark performance in The Great Beauty. Our opening film and the centrepiece of the selection is Emma Dante’s widely acclaimed The Macaluso Sisters, winner of the Italian Film Critics Syndicate Best Film award.
