Having projected films onto building facades during lockdown and organised a floating theatre on Eur Lake in the summer, Alice nella Città is now headed to Rome’s Nuvola di Fuksas Convention Centre on the occasion of the festival’s 18th edition, unspooling in the capital between 15 – 25 October alongside the 15th Rome Film Fest. For the very first time, the Convention Centre designed by the famous Roman architect will open its auditorium doors to the world of cinema, hosting part of the rich Alice nella Città programme which is dedicated, as always, to the younger generations, and will this year offer up 12 films in competition, 5 out of competition, 6 special screenings, a new “Sintonie” section organised in collaboration with Venice 77 and the Series line-up, not to mention 3 restored films and 26 shorts.

“This year, we’ve looked to overturn festival boundaries by moving beyond the labelling of films and the dogged quest for world premieres”, declared section directors Gianluca Giannelli and Fabia Bettini while introducing Sintonie, the new line-up created in collaboration with Venice Film Festival director Alberto Barbera. “Our focal point is kids: those shown in the films which were presented in Venice and which have now been re-selected for Alice nella Città, and those who were unable to enjoy the Venice screenings but will now be able to catch up via Alice”. The 6 proposed titles are: The Predators [+lee también:
