Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Six first and second features in competition and seven national and international premieres, a selection designed for a diverse audience and with a focus on different genres, styles and languages — ranging from the family film to horror, from dark comedy to drama, from animation to arthouse. Taking place from 27 June to 3 July at the Teatro Antico, the 67th edition of the Taormina Film Fest, the first under the direction of the trio Francesco Alò, Alessandra De Luca and Federico Pontiggia, is under the sign of rebirth and of cinema as a shared experience.

Among the special screenings will be Summer of Soul, about the iconic concert of the Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969 (often referred to as the Black Woodstock) featuring B.B. King, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder among others. Assembled by director Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson with unprecedented access to archival material, the film invites a reflection on racial issues in the United States.

The thirteen previews of films in the official selection will be accompanied by encounters with the protagonists, exhibitions and panels. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Nino Manfredi, the film journalists of the SNGCI will hand out the “Premio Manfredi” to an actor who has shown great talent in comedy and beyond. Director Ferzan Özpetek will also be present at Taormina to meet the public for the twentieth anniversary of His Secret Life and to share his fascinating artistic journey.

Concluding the event will be the family film Peter Rabbit 2 - The Runaway, an adventurous mix of animation and live action directed by Will Gluck, which will be screened simultaneously at the Teatro Antico and in Rome as part of the TimVision Floating Theatre Summer Fest organised by Alice nella Città.
