Cinema lovers, Romans and expats, sign the dates: March 26-29 IrishFilmFesta in Rome!
Since 2007 the association Archimedia, together with Culture Ireland, the Irish Film Board, Tourism Ireland and Irish Embassy to Italy, promote a film festival entirely dedicated to the Green Island’s cinema industry.
This 8th edition will be including, beyond the most awaited films shows (no need to say, in original language with subtitles), meetings with Irish directors, actors, screenwriters and producers, as well as debates and many more events. The programme this year is particularly rich: new films and also old inedite classics will be presented. The aim of the event is to promote Irish cinematography in Italy, being it still scarcely known. To be more precise “it hardly crosses Irish borders, and even when it does, it is often considered English or American. So far, the only film makers which managed to gain international popularity are Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan. But Irish cinema generated many more talents, and in the last years is being characterized by a remarkable artistic variety, which needs to be exported”, says the event manifesto.
IrishFilmFesta will be held at Casa del Cinema di Roma, in the beautiful backdrop of Villa Borghese. There is no entrance fee to attendi it, but you can contribute to the organization with a donation. Ask our staff at Carlito Hotel & Hostel for more details and directions!
