Italian Film Festival Event Brings 13 Films and Four Directors to Town

A visual treat awaits lovers of Italian cinema and culture, and it involves mozzarella cheese and a chance to meet four of Italy’s most innovative contemporary film directors.The sixth annual Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival will feature 13 films shown at the Sottile Theatre. Students and the general public are invited to view the mix of feature and short films.

The festival, which runs Thursday-Sunday, has become increasingly popular and able to attract more cinematic talent each year, said Giovanna De Luca, festival director and professor of Italian and cinema at the College of Charleston.

At this year’s festival, four Italian directors will present and discuss their works: Edoardo De Angelis (“Mozzarella Stories”), Paola Randi (“Into Paradiso”), Tonino Zangardi (“Sandrine in the Rain”) and Nico Cirasola (“bell’epoker”), who is making his second festival appearance.
