Escape to Italy whilst watching the best new Italian films, showcased at the ST. ALi Italian Film Festival.
Now in its 22nd year, the festival will be presenting a wide selection of films; with a long list of Australian premieres.
There will be something for everyone, including dramas, comedies and films for the whole family to enjoy, including the Christmas themed ‘When Mum Is Away….With The Family’ a comedic road trip to bring a family together for Christmas.
This year’s lineup includes the special presentation of the film ‘Three Floors’ a moving adaptation of Eshkol Nevo’s acclaimed bestseller, which traces the disparate lives of three families who reside in the same apartment block.
If you are a fan of old movies, then you will enjoy the festival’s retrospective look at the work of Roberto Rossellini, with the movies Amore, Stromboli, Paisan and Journey To Italy, featuring as a showcase of his talent.
If you are looking for something light-hearted, there are a selection of comedies on offer, including the very funny, Three Perfect Daughters.
Closing night, again at Luna Leederville, will present another Roberto Rossellini masterpiece, the newly 4K restored 1945 film ‘Rome, Open City’ starring the Oscar-winning actress Anna Magnani.
