Il materiale emotivo, de Sergio Castellitto

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

Eight international premieres selected from among the most recent global productions; an International Panorama consisting of twelve films hailing from all over the world which are set to enjoy their Italian or international premieres; six Italian movies presented for the very first time in the ItaliaFilmFest line-up; nine masterclasses and a tribute to 01 Distribution looking back at 40 of the biggest titles distributed by the firm over the past 20 years… It may seem a somewhat reduced offering (in terms of the number of screenings and movie theatres involved, owing to a drastic reduction in funding) but the programme offered up by the 12th Bif&st-Bari International Film Festival is no less rich and varied than usual, directed, as ever, by Felice Laudadio and scheduled to unspool from 25 September to 2 October in the Apulian capital’s four historic theatres: Petruzzelli, Piccinni, Kursaal and Margherita.

After the open-air edition of August 2020 and this year’s event, which is unfolding, on this occasion, between the Venice and Rome film festivals, Bif&st hopes to get back to its usual spring dates in 2022 (26 March – 2 April).
