- The IFC Association and Istituto Luce Cinecittà have signed an agreement to promote the use of archived films and broaden the services offered to audiovisual productions in Italy
An agreement has been signed between the Italian Film Commissions Association and Istituto Luce Cinecittà to promote the use of archived films and broaden the range of services offered to audiovisual productions in Italy. The document, signed by Roberto Cicutto, president of Istituto Luce Cinecittà, and by Stefania Ippoliti, president of Italian Film Commissions, will allow productions to make the most of the Institute’s extensive film heritage, comprising newsreels and documentaries that it produced itself.
The contents of the archive preserve the history of Italy from 1900 onwards and demonstrate how Italian culture has progressed, not only in terms of cinema, but also in terms of society in general: this extraordinary material can be used to tell countless stories – not just from a documentary angle, but also from a fictional one.
The agreement is reserved exclusively for audiovisual productions supported by the Film Commissions that are members of the IFC Association; it provides access to Istituto Luce Cinecittà's archived material at discounted rates.
