From 15th to 21st June 2020, the third edition of “Fare Cinema” will take place, a review of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation that promotes Italian cinema and the film industry of our country in the world.
Realized in collaboration with RAI, MiBACT, Italian Trade Agency, Istituto Luce-Cinecittà and ANICA, for the first time the festival will be distributed entirely in digital format all over the world on the RaiPlay platform, thanks to the collaboration between MAECI and RAI.
The programme includes an unprecedented offer of content dedicated to the Italian cinema and film industry, subtitled in English, French and Spanish: masterclasses by two great experts in Italian cinema (Gianni Canova and Gianfranco Angelucci), video lectures by film professionals, films and short films to celebrate Italian cinema and its professions. Actors, directors, and screenwriters, but also editors, cinematographers, composers, costume designers, set designers, casting directors and many others. A heritage of competence and professionalism that contributes to confer the high cultural content that is recognised to our cinema all over the world and that constitutes a real added value of “Made in Italy” cinema.
“Fare Cinema” will also be the occasion to celebrate two important anniversaries in 2020: the centenary of the birth of Federico Fellini and Alberto Sordi. In addition, Saturday, June 20 will be celebrated the first World Film Day of Italian cinema, decided by Parliament last December: the Day will be accompanied by the screening on RaiPlay of the titles of the five “Best Short Film” of the David di Donatello Awards 2020.
“This year’s edition of ‘Making Cinema’ – says Marina Sereni, Deputy Minister with responsibility for the promotion of Italian culture in the world – is special. Among many things, COVID has taken away the joy and pleasure of spending an evening in a theatre watching a film together with others. Reviving the magic and emotions you feel when you go to the cinema is not easy, but you have to do it, to safeguard an art form that has made and still makes our country great in the world. The films, short films, masterclasses and video lessons that we will present in the entirely digital exhibition, without forgetting the homage to Alberto Sordi and Federico Fellini for the centenary of their birth, represent an extraordinary heritage of culture, professionalism and skills that characterize our film and audio-visual industry, which we absolutely do not want to be lost. Culture will in fact play a key role in the projection of a new and stronger narrative of Italy in the world to start again after the health emergency. A narrative to be built also through cinema, which has always been a formidable instrument for the promotion of our country”.
