The 2016 edition of the Italian Film Festival is now concluded. We thank all of the partners, sponsors and everyone who came out to watch and support the festival for yet another successful year. Stay tuned for more Italian movies throughout the year by visiting Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre website.
The Italian Film Festival’s mandate is to raise awareness and promote all aspects of Italian cinema. The festival, a collaboration involving Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre, the Vancouver International Film Festival, and the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver, blends contemporary and classic films from Italy’s significant cinematic repertoire to create a unique festival experience. Contemporary films from the past two to three years are merged with Italy’s rich patrimony of classic avant-garde, and neo realism cinema, and presented to the public every January during a one-week run at the VanCity Cinema located at 1181 Seymour Street in Vancouver.
While the marquee for the Italian Film Festival is our January event, IFF also presents and hosts a series of film presentations over the calendar year.
