The third edition of Cinema Made in Italy offers a 5-day showcase of the best recent Italian productions. The festival’s programme includes 10 brand new Italian films: a selection of eight titles made by Gianni Canova, Italian film critic, Professor of Cinema History and Dean of IULM University in Milan, and a special choice of two films by Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London. Four of these films are French-Italian coproductions, highlighting the long history of fruitful cinematic collaboration between France and Italy.
The screenings will be followed by Q&A sessions with directors and actors. This is a unique chance to see Italian films that have not yet had exposure in the UK and a rare opportunity to catch up with brand new, cutting edge Italian cinema.www.filmitalia.org

Italian Cinema London is proud to present a retrospective of the work of Paolo Virzì, one of Italy’s best-regarded contemporary film directors.
Hailed as a major heir of the Italian comedy film tradition, Virzì has mastered the art of using tragi-comic characters and outlandish situations to make serious comments on modern-day Italy and its social issues.
His interesting and varied characters move naturally around Livorno, Virzì’s native city, often the protagonist of his films.
The Italian Cinema London team looks forward to welcoming you to this latest event at Riverside Studios to enjoy the work of this inimitable Italian director.
