Italian Film

Welcome, Benvenuti to the 2014 Italian Film festival.

We are pleased to announce the screening dates and locations of the 2014 edition of the festival, New Zealand’s 19th consecutive event. These are detailed to the left of this page. The period the festival screens in each festival city is similar to last year, except in Dunedin where the festival has moved forward 2 weeks.

The 2014 festival screens in 4 cities at 5 cinemas. In Auckland the festival continues at Rialto Cinemas in Newmarket, with a move in North Auckland to the Berkeley Cinemas in Takapuna. In Wellington the festival is also moving to the Embassy Theatre, whilst in Christchurch and Dunedin we continue to screen at the Hollywood and Rialto Cinemas respectively.

Unfortunately it is no longer possible for the festival to directly manage screenings in all the other previous festival locations of Nelson, Hawke’s Bay, Hamilton and Tauranga. But I am very pleased to say that the cinemas in each of Nelson (Suter Theatre), Hawke’s Bay (MTG Hawke’s Bay) & Hamilton (Lido Cinemas) will manage an Italian film season directly. Details of the season dates is available from the cinemas.

We are very pleased to announce the release of the 2013 DVD box set of the majority of films plus some more from the 2013 festival. There are a massive 18 films on this set for $175 inc. GST. Stock is available from the 1st August. We also hold stock of all of the sets from 2005 to 2012. Please see the DVD sale pages for more information and how to order your copy.

If you would like to receive notification of future updates to the festival’s information, such as film details and location times please complete the small number of details requested on the registration page. If you did that in previous years, you do not need to do it again. All those who newly register go in the draw for a winner of 6 vouchers for film screenings of their choice.

The announcement of the films with screenings schedules will be made in August.
