2014 Lavazza Italian Film Festival

2014 Lavazza Italian Film Festival

The 2014 Lavazza Italian Film Festival will bring a dash of Mediterranean romance to 15 superb Palace locations from mid-September to late October, all around Australia.

The Festival’s 15th annual outing will screen 33 show-stopping new features and documentaries and one glamourous classic, showcasing the charisma of Italy’s most engaging actors, from Kim Rossi Stuart, Raoul Bova, Monica Bellucci and Claudio Santamaria to Giovanna Mezzorgiorno, Valeria Golino, Margherita Buy and Sergio Rubini.

Opening the Festival will be Marina, a gloriously entertaining biopic that tells the true story of singer, songwriter and accordionist, Rocco Granata. The nostalgic charm of the movie is certain to leave audiences with a smile on their face, and a spring in their step!

A highlight of the 2014 edition will be the screening of the Sophia Loren/Marcello Mastroianni classic Marriage Italian Style (Matrimonio all’italiana), which will be presented as the Closing Night film in each city. The movie has been restored to its former glory on the 50th anniversary of its first release by Cineteca di Bologna, Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage and Memory Cinéma, in collaboration with Surf Film.

The 2014 Lavazza Italian Film Festival will take place in the ACT at the Palace Electric from September the 23rd to October the 15th. Please check the screening program.
