Estate d’Autore : 13 premières pour rallonger la saison en Italie
La terra dell’abbastanza des frères D’Innocenzo

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Thirteen films – including six Italian films and seven European films – are to be premiered in Italian cinemas in June in order to promote going to the cinema during the summer months. FICE - Federazione italiana cinema d’essai (Italian Association of Arthouse Cinema) is trying to make a contribution to the age-old problem of seasonality and solve the problem of stagnant scheduling that causes cinemas to become deserted with the arrival of the summer heat. "The problem with cinema attendance during the summer months is crucial. Concentrating releases at certain times of year prevents Italian cinema from taking off because films are not fully exploited," underlined Domenico Dinoia, president of FICE, at the presentation of the Estate d'Autore: Prime visioni al cinema initiative today in Rome – now in its fifth edition. "Italy shows films in cinemas for the least amount of time in comparison to other European countries," confirmed Andrea Occhipinti, president of the distributor ANICA, "an impressive number of films (and copies) are released between December and February, but with disappointing results because they are only screened for two weeks."

Meanwhile, pending the application of the new Italian Cinema Law that provides incentives for summer releases, data presented today at FICE's headquarters in Rome confirms that the trend is in dire need of reversal. From 1 January to 31 May 2018, cinema takings and attendance fell even further compared to the same period in 2017 (a year that was already considered particularly difficult): with takings at -6.78% and attendance at -11,92%. Last year, cinema attendance during the summer season (1 June - 31 August) came in at 10.6 million, accounting for 11.5% of cinema attendance for the whole year; while France saw an attendance of 45.7 million (21.8% of the entire year) for the same period. In short, the summer months could potentially begin to make a real impact on improving Italy’s annual box office takings.
