, also released in the wake of Cannes and starring the same protagonist, Pierfrancesco Favino, barely earned 1 million”. This is how Domenico Dinoia, Chair of FICE – the Italian Federation of Arthouse Film, illustrates the deep crisis miring down Italian cinemas in this post-pandemic period. He was speaking in Rome during the presentation of the nineth edition of “Arthouse Summer. Premieres in Cinemas”, an initiative promoting high-quality film in the summer period, which has turned into a cry for help voiced by cinema operators who are urging audiences not to abandon movie theatres.

“Cinemas are struggling to overcome the difficulties caused by two long years of the pandemic, with prolonged, strict measures of containment on the one hand and an explosion in domestic film consumption on the other”, Dinoia explains. “Yet policies aimed at ensuring visibility, promotion and vital spaces for the cinema market, especially for arthouse films, to help them contend with other, far more economically powerful works, are still thin on the ground”.

Regulation over exclusivity windows which singles out cinemas as a central element in the release chain, for foreign films too, and a rule stipulating percentages to be paid to cinemas for use of these works, are two of the options suggested by professionals in order to avoid numerous cinemas definitively closing their doors.

Meanwhile, arthouse cinema operators are battling on as best they can, reviving Italian and European arthouse film over the summer, “a period in which it makes more sense to work in the interests of a selective audience who want to be stimulated”, according to FICE Vice-President Giuliana Fantoni. This year’s edition of “Arthouse Summer. Premieres in Cinemas” foresees a programme of 12 fiction feature films and a selection of recent documentaries, for which the Federation will ensure widespread broadcasting and promotion in June, July and August, across the 400+ cinemas taking part in the scheme.
