The Italian Cultural Institute and Luce Cinecittà proudly present the second annual Italian Film Festival with its evocative new title Cinema Made in Italy. From 9th to 15th March there's a week of British premieres for 13 new Italian films at Cine Lumière, chosen by Paolo Mereghetti, film critic for Il Corriere della Sera, and by Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London.
The program will include meetings with directors Francesco Bruni, Stefano Chiantini, Alessandro Comodin, Giuseppe Gagliardi, Andrea Segre, Guido Lombardi, Roan Johnson, Marina Spada, Daniele Gaglianone, Ivan Cotroneo and leading actors Barbora Bobulova and Antonio Merone.
For the rest of the month Italian films based around sport, in honour of the Olympic year, will be screened in the Georgian splendour of the Italian Cultural Institute itself. In addition, there will be a tribute to master director Vittorio De Seta, who died last year
