Not only Films

In addition to screenings, Il Cinema Ritrovato is an exceptional place to experience and share film culture. Every day – through lectures and talks by filmmakers, historians and critics – provides a unique opportunity to deepen and discuss aesthetic, cultural and technical issues. Internationally recognized restoration experts will discuss the challenges behind the new restorations presented during the festival within the framework of the FIAF Restoration Summer School, in collaboration with L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory. Two workshops, Views of the Ottoman Empire and The Irresistible Fascination of Antiquity, will be held by international specialists.
Last but not least: a Book & Dvd fair and book presentations at the Renzo Renzi library; the Europe Cinemas international seminar for film exhibitors; ACE’s (Association des Cinémathèques Européennes) general assembly; Il Cinema Ritrovato Dvd Awards and much more... Thanks to the collaboration of a group of young cinephiles the festival will be commented on the daily blog
Finally, and in continuation with the last few years, this year’s festival will offer a larger section dedicated to our youngest cinephiles. Il Cinema Ritrovato Kids includes a very rich calendar of activities: screenings, workshops on animations, games, educational activities, curated by the Cineteca’s year-round educational program Schermi & Lavagne.
