International Promotion of Contemporary Cinema
Through its promotional branch of contemporary cinema known abroad as Filmitalia, Cinecittà collaborates with major international film festivals – Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, Shanghai, Tokyo, Locarno, New York, London, Haifa, and many others – by organizing a selection of Italian films and guaranteeing the presence of Italian movies and artists while providing for multifunctional spaces abroad to support the promotion of our film industry.
Filmitalia coordinates the organization of numerous Film Festivals worldwide in cities and countries strategically significant for the diffusion of Italian cinema: the Tokyo Italian Film Festival, Open Roads – New Italian Cinema in New York, the Mostra de Cinema Italia de Barcelona, Cinema Made in Italy in London, the Mittelcinemafest and many others. Events that are well rooted in their countries, by now at their thirteenth (London) and even twenty-fourth (Tokyo) editions, boasting high-profile partnerships, such as the New York Lincoln Center or the Asahi Shimbun in Tokyo.
Furthermore, the office annually subtitles at least 25/30 copies of contemporary Italian films in English, French, and Spanish and manages the bilingual site www.filmitalia.org, the Italian film database, which has become a point of reference for the internationalization of our film industry.
