The city of Rome will host the seventh edition of the Rome Film Festival, on Nov. 9 – 17.
Three Italian movies are also going to participate in the competition: Alì ha gli occhi azzurri by Claudio Giovannesi, E la chiamano estate by Paolo Franchi, and Il volto di un’altra by Pappi Corsicato.
Many other films will be presented outside the competition.
The program will also include three other sections: CinemaXXI, Alice nella città, and Prospettive Italia.
Cinema XXI is a competitive selection of films devoted to the new trends, embracing various genres and lengths and includes 50 movies.
Alice nella città is dedicated to the young audience — a sort of independently organized parallel sidebar.
Prospettive Italia is a collection of 32 movies, focused on new trends for the Italian movie industry.
The competition will be judged by a jury chaired by Jeff Nichols, Timur Bekmambetov, Valentina Cervi, Chris Fujiwara, Leila Hatami, P.J Hogan, and Edgardo Cozarinsky.
Rome Film Festival is going to take place this year in a special location: the spectacular complex of Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome. Designed by the archistar Renzo Piano, The Auditorium gives a special atmosphere to the Gala. Roman people do the rest.
