Landmark’s Embarcadero Center Cinema
Celebrating 15 years in San Francisco, New Italian Cinema 2011 offers Opening and Closing Night presentations with work by prominent Italian directors. A three-film tribute to Daniele Luchetti will open the Festival, followed by seven features by up-and-coming directors in the City of Florence competition. The films in this year’s program investigate topics including corporate malfeasance, office politics, rural life and war, as experienced by Italians from every walk of life. Closing Night offers the latest by one of Italy’s most respected filmmakers, Nanni Moretti’s Habemus Papam. A festive Closing Night reception at a nearby restaurantwill finish out the festival.
The SFFS has tons of stuff like this going on all the time, year in and year out. Check it:
Anyway, here are two of the Italian films they have coming up and the rest you can see after the jump.
