The Rome Film Festival is a movie Festival planned for November 2013. With All Around Italy you will discover the City of Rome and the Film Festival, that will take place at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano.
You will have a choice of seven movie theatres (Santa Cecilia, recently moved from this area from the Vatican, the Sinopoli, Petrassi, Studio 3, Teatro Studio, the Multiplex cinema Barberini and the Auditorium MAXXI at the National Museum of XXI Century Arts) and will be able discover 2620 movies from 76 countries.
The Official Selection of the Film Festival consists in a Competition dedicated to international movies, an Out of Competition section with a selection of 2013 gala screenings, the Cinema XXI competitive section, dedicated to some new trends in cinema across the world and, finally, the Prospettive Doc Italia competition, about new ways in Italian documentary filmmaking. The independent sidebar “Alice nella città” will arrange a programme of films for the youngest movie-goers.
For example, you will be able to watch the new film by Indian experimental filmmaker Amit Dutta, “The Seventh Walk”, shot in the Kangra Valley, and chosen to be the closing film of Cinema XXI, the part of the Festival dedicated to new trends in international cinema.
Alternatively, you can do an immersion in the Italian culture and history, with “Seaside holidays” by Ermanno Cavazzoni, as well as some movies about Fellini, one of the most famous Italian filmmakers, who lived and worked in Rome for many years, producing a lot of movies.
The tour continues with “Alice nella città” the part of the Film Festival planned for the young people, with, amongst others, “South is Nothing”, shot in the South of Italy. However, around the Music Park there are a lot of places to see in the beautiful Rome. In this area, very close to the Parco della Musica, is based the Maxxi, the modern and contemporary art gallery of Rome, with both collection exhibitions and a lot of temporary exhibitions, such as, “Jan Fabre. Stigmata” and “Happy Moms” by Daniele Puppi.
Nonetheless, even for those people who don’t like arts, in this area there is the Villa Glori Park, called “Parco della rimembranza” or Memory Park, where you can enjoy a stroll while eating a gelato.
