Many people can name the classics of Italian cinema, such as The Bicycle Thief, La Dolce Vita and Nights of Cabiria. SIFF presents an opportunity to say “Buongiorno” to contemporary Italian film at their Annual Italian Film Festival. Pagliacci is proud to be a sponsor of this event, now in its third year. This year’s festival features ten films exhibiting the best of modern Italian cinema including Terraferma, which is Italy’s official Academy Award submission. You can also see the winner of the Italian Critics Award for Best Film, Habemus Papem. The festival, held at the newly renovated Uptown Theater, runs Wednesday through Sunday. In conjunction with the festival, enjoy Taste of Italy Nov. 19 – 20 for a sampling of Italian food, wine, art and more. Ticket information and show times can be found at SIFF’s website.
