Cinema Made in Italy 2013 will kick off on 6 March at Ciné Lumière, celebrating its third edition. The event, which has become an annual rendezvous, is organised by Istituto Luce Cinecittà/Filmitalia and offers a 5-day showcase of the best recent Italian productions. The festival’s programme includes 10 brand new Italian films: a selection of eight titles made by Gianni Canova, Italian film critic, Professor of Cinema History and Dean of IULM University in Milan, and a special choice of two films by Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London. Four of these films are French-Italian coproductions, highlighting the long history of fruitful cinematic collaboration between France and Italy. The screenings will be followed by Q&A sessions with directors and actors. This is a unique chance to see Italian films that have not yet had exposure in the UK and a rare opportunity to catch up with brand new, cutting edge Italian cinema.
