Rome Under the Spotlight Of The World of Cinema: 5th Film Festival Starts

By BuzzInRome

It is not as glamorous as the Cannes, not as original as the Sundance, not as old as Venice’s, but Rome’s International Film Festival is getting better every year and it has now become the world’s fourth most important event of its kind. The fifth edition of the Festival will be held from October 28 to November 5 in the beautiful surroundings of the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, the architectural complex realized in 2002 by Italian architect Renzo Piano.

This year’s competition will have many anticipated films such as “Last Night”by the Iranian director Massy Tadjedin, starring Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes, or “Rabbit Hole”, Nicole Kidman’s first production.

The “Window on the World/Focus” section will be dedicated to Japan’s cinema and culture and there will be a showing of the restored version of Akira Kurosawa’s key work “Rashomon”, for the centennial celebration of the Japanese film master.

But the Festival will also attract children with its premiere of the second Winx film “Winx Club 3D – Magica Avventura” in which the Italian cartoon favorite explores 3D for the first time.

The complete program and tickets are available here.

A Venetian query: Does anyone know a good place to enjoy the cicchetti bar snacks that are popular in Venice?

Hi Wendy, sorry for the delay...I was on the road and unable to answer...there are plenty of places to live your full immersion experience, personally I would suggest a medieval village near Rome, or even Tuscany and you can have a real experience plus you are a stone-thorw away from cultural events and monumental you can have and live both aspects of this cutlure.

In reply to Wendy: Try Sicily! Beautiful place. Sun, Sea, Mountain/Volcano, amazing food, nice people, secluded spots devoid of tourists, etc. and I have been living here for over a year and have probably spoken English 2-3 times. You won't regret it.

Ciao a tutti! Italian-American here, always looking for an excuse to go back to Italy. Would love to find some corner where there won't be any tourists and I won't hear a word of English (so I can practice, I'm getting rusty!!).

Hey that's a good idea, I've done some others like the Comrades in South Africa, and also walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I do like to write but I don't have a lot of time to spend sitting in front of the computer, but I will try, thanks for the idea. And... asi que eres Cubano, pues que bueno, entonces somos latinos, me agrada el parentezco... Saludos.

Sì, sono cubano.

If you like to write, you should blog about your 100K run in Italy, it sounds like a good story!
