A come back with a bang for your summer of cinema and culture on the Tiber Island for the XXV edition L’Isola del Cinema film festival that, from June 13th to September 1st will present its new enriched programme.

Premieres, contests, awards, masterclasses and panels with directors and actors, will all be protagonists our festival that, once again, will take place every night, from 7pm to 2am, for 80 days. For its XXV edition, “the stone island” shaped like a ship will meet its three new friends: Innovation, Environment and Tourism. L’Isola del Cinema, has always accorded particular importance to new technologies and languages in cinema, and this year it offers a wide selection of both cult classics and emerging talents, d’auteur masterpieces and new cinematographic experiences, welcoming VR cinema production.

L’Isola del Cinema has always had multiculturalism as a personal calling: particular emphasis will be given to international cinema thanks to our section, Isola Mondo. This selection of independent international movies is organised in collaboration with Embassies and Cultural Institutions, in order to push our audience out of their comfort zone, showing them the colours, the tastes and the passions of another country. Furthermore, music, literature, photography and poetry will animate the cultural evenings on the island, with a wide programme of collateral events.

At the start of this XXV edition of L’Isola del Cinema, event under UNESCO’s patronage, our festival will dedicate a special event in honour of the great Maestro Sergio Leone and its cinema, to mark the 90 anniversary of his birth. This event will reassert the festival as lively and elegant salon on the astonishing marbles of the Roman God Aesculapius.
