It’s that time of year when we emerge from our wintery cocoons and embrace all that Spring has to offer, including an annual trip to Italy with the ST. ALi Italian Film Festival! This edition features a stunning selection of contemporary Italian cinema, a nod to Pier Paolo Pasolini on the centenary of his birth, and a spotlight on Naples, featuring Mario Martone’s Nostalgia selected at the Cannes Film Festival (In Competition).
We are also excited to be screening two very fresh films direct from their world premieres: Francesca Archibugi’s highly anticipated ensemble drama The Hummingbird (Il colibrì), direct from Toronto International Film Festival (Gala); and Gianni Amelio‘s Lord of The Ants (Il signore delle formiche), straight from Venice Film Festival (In Competition). Join us at the cinema for a ST. ALi Coffee, vino or aperitivo, as we share the enjoyment of seeing films on the big screen.
Enjoy, indulge and live la dolce vita!
