Cinema Made in Italy 2020


CINEMA MADE IN ITALY 2020 celebrates a decade of bringing the cream of recent Italian productions to the capital. From 4 – 9 March, London audiences will once again be able to sample a rich and diverse programme which promises to delight and engage viewers and offers a taste of modern Italy and beyond.

In addition to the nine new Italian productions being showcased, Liliana Cavani’s 1974 provocative psychological thriller “The night porter” will be screened as the ‘Sunday Classics Matinee’ title.
