From 29 November to 3 December 2017 the Italian Film Focus will take place once again at the Labia Theatre in Cape Town (68, Orange Street, Gardens).
The XVII edition of the festival is the result of the long-standing collaboration between the Italian Consulate in Cape Town, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Pretoria, Associazione Controluce and the Labia Theatre, with the support of MIBACT (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism).
Its objective is to offer to South African cinema lovers and sector experts not only a selection of the recent Italian productions that have been presented at main European festivals, but also and foremost an insight into Italian contemporary society.
As per previous editions, also this year actors, directors and authors will attend to screenings, participate in workshops and meetings with students and the South African counterparts.
There are eight movies scheduled for the festival, each of them will be screened two or three times during the festival at the Labia Theatre.
