The 7th edition of the Italian Film Festival has concluded, and we’d like to thank all the people that attended the screenings and showed us so much love and support, together with all the organizations that participated to it.
The Italian Film Festival’s mandate is to raise awareness and promote all aspects of Italian cinema. The 2020 Italian Film Festival was co-presented by Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre, the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver, and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Toronto; for the 2020 edition, we were honoured to receive the support of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Vancouver, the City of Vancouver – Cultural Services, and the Georgia Straight.
IFF 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.
