It’s with an exhortation to look beyond the historic times that we’re currently living in and the significant challenges that come with them, that the Isola del Cinema Festival - a long-standing film event which has unfolded every summer on the banks of the Tiber River – is launching its special online edition, intitled “Let’s Take Back Our Future”. On the agenda are eleven days of online screenings, showcasing Italian and foreign films, running from 18 to 28 March and accompanied by presentations, interviews and video messages from directors and actors, which will all be broadcast on MyMovies, free of charge.

It’s a forward-looking approach which can also be detected in the attention the festival will be paying to the natural world around us, which is to be protected and defended, working in tandem with younger generations. A film dedicated to this very topic is set to open the festival, in a national premiere, within the “Fuoco sul reale” (lit. “Focus on Reality”) section: Sustainable Nation by Israeli director Micah Smith, a title examining three projects by as many Israelis who are looking to find sustainable water solutions for an increasingly thirsty planet, and which stresses how the resolution of this enormous challenge could help people rid themselves of poverty and disease.

Rounding off the programme, we find an abundant selection of short films, the Isola Mondo line-up offering titles hailing from Japan and Brazil, masterclasses and, last but not least, tributes paid to Masters of Film, including one such homage to the director, screenwriter, editor and philosopher Silvano Agosti.
