Italian Film

Welcome, Benvenuti to the 2013 Italian Film festival.

The 18th New Zealand Italian Film festival; my 13th consecutive event. How did we get here so fast!? Every one of them has been a lot of fun, and very rewarding. I have met, and worked with, so many fantastic people during those 13 years, and seen some incredible Italian films. I am so proud that we have grown the festival to be the most successful cultural film festival in New Zealand. New Zealanders love all things Italian and I am lucky to have been part of one of the events that give so many people so much pleasure. Check out the festival's trailer here.

The 2013 event continues the tradition of a fantastic lineup of films. This year we present a group covering many genres, particularly concentrated on those that appeal to the majority of you: comedy, romantic comedy and drama. Plus a figure skating, opera extravaganza from the historic Verona arena. The lineup includes nearly all the winners of the Italian film industry's awards. There is something in the program for everyone.

So now it is for you to spend time perusing the film selection, coupled with the screening schedule, to work out how you are going to indulge your passion for Italian cinema - a tough ask with all the delights on offer this year. If you're having trouble narrowing down your choices, my recommendation is simply to determine those periods when you can make time, and go and see the film that is screening then. I am certain you will not be disappointed.

Viva il cinema italiano!
