Cinema enthusiasts staying at Worldhotel Ripa Roma this March will no doubt be interested in attending the French film festival taking place in the Italian capital between the 14th and the 21st of the month.
Dubbed “Francofilm”, the 2014 edition of this festival marks its fifth year in existence. On show will be eleven films, originating from such disparate countries as Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Morocco, Romania, Senegal, Switzerland, Tunisia and, of course, France. The common thread linking all of these works together will of course be the language, as all the features on offer are spoken in French and presented with Italian subtitles. All screenings during the festival will be entirely free, allowing guests staying in top class establishments like Worldhotel Ripa Roma to discover the best French cinema has to offer.
Rounding up the card for the 2014 edition of Francofilm are talks with some of the filmmakers who will be presenting their works at the festival, as well as a special musical concert. Members of the audience will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite works, and a dedicated jury will present two other specialised awards to professionals in the cinematic field. The awards ceremony will take place on the final day of the festival, March 21, which will centre almost entirely around it.
This festival is the result of a co-operative effort between the Institute Francais Centre Saint Louis and the embassies of several of the featured countries, all of which are members of the International Francophone Organization. The festival is also backed by several well-known French and Italian enterprises, such as leading airline Air France, IF Cinema, the European Institute for Design (IED), and the Taste Of Italy wine repository.
Screenings will take place at the Centre’s headquarters at Toniolo Square.
