In its fourth year under Antonio Monda’s wing, Rome Film Fest still continues to grow (+20% in admissions and takings) and has become increasingly international, better delineating its identity – both refined and popular – and becoming an important place to share ideas. A place where world film stars come to talk about cinema, not because of film promotion constraints, but simply because they feel like it and want to enjoy the festival. It was on this last point, that the festival’s artistic director, Monda, chose to focus while presenting the programme of the 13th edition today in Rome (18-28 October), where ample space will be dedicated to Incontri ravvicinati (close encounters) with directors, actors and some of the film industry’s greatest personalities (14 in all), now known as the festival’s trademark. Attendees at Rome include Martin Scorsese and Isabelle Huppert, who will both receive career awards, as well as Cate Blanchett, Michael Moore (whose new film about Donald Trump, Farenheit 11/9, will also be screened), Sigourney Weaver, Giuseppe Tornatore, Mario Martone, and the general delegate of Cannes, Thierry Frémaux, who will be talking about the future of festivals.

by Paolo Virzi (closing film) and two musical documentaries, Noi siamo Afterhours by Giorgio Testi, about Afterhours and its lead singer, Manuel Agnelli, and their thirty year history together, and Vero dal vivo by Daniele Barraco, about Francesco De Gregori.

The common thread running through this year's edition is noir film, starting with the opening film Bad Times at the El Royale by Drew Goddard, starring Jeff Bridges and Dakota Johnson, defined by Monda as a "very glamorous neo-noir film." This year’s edition includes various strong themes, such as racial laws and the Holocaust, as well as four documentaries (including 1938 - Quando scoprimmo di non essere più italiani by Pietro Suber) in the Per non dimenticare section, and a film on the "rehabilitation" of gay men, Boy Erased by Joel Edgerton in the Tutti ne parlano section. Retrospectives are dedicated to Peter Sellers (also featuring in this year's beautiful poster) and Maurice Pialat, with a selection of 12 and 10 films respectively. Tributes will be paid to Robert Redford, at Rome with his latest film (The Old Man & the Gun) before his final retirement, and to directors who have recently passed away, such as Ermanno Olmi, Vittorio Taviani and Carlo Vanzina.
