Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Having projected films onto building facades during lockdown and organised a floating theatre on Eur Lake in the summer, Alice nella Città is now headed to Rome’s Nuvola di Fuksas Convention Centre on the occasion of the festival’s 18th edition, unspooling in the capital between 15 – 25 October alongside the 15th Rome Film Fest. For the very first time, the Convention Centre designed by the famous Roman architect will open its auditorium doors to the world of cinema, hosting part of the rich Alice nella Città programme which is dedicated, as always, to the younger generations, and will this year offer up 12 films in competition, 5 out of competition, 6 special screenings, a new “Sintonie” section organised in collaboration with Venice 77 and the Series line-up, not to mention 3 restored films and 26 shorts.

The 6 proposed titles are: The Predators [+lire aussi :
