As is customary every spring, Poland stages the “Cinema Italia Oggi”, a festival of Italian contemporary cinema. The Italian Embassy in Warsaw, under whose honorary auspices the event takes place, informs that the 2017 “Cinema Italia Oggi” Festival will expand to six different Polish cities, with screenings scheduled in Warsaw (where the Festival opened on 16 March) to Cracow, Wrocław, Poznan, Lublin and Szczecin. The programme is authentically Italian, conceived by the organisers in such a way as to maximise the viewing of Italian cinema throughout the Polish territory. The films to be screened include: “Le Confessioni” (“The Confessions”) by Roberto Andò featuring Toni Servillo, “Veloce come il vento” (“Italian Race”) with Stefano Accorsi, and the blockbuster “Quo Vado”, starring Checco Zalone.
“Cinema Italia Oggi” was organised by the Italian Cultural Institutes in Warsaw and Cracow, in association with the Istituto Luce Cinecittà and the Cinema Muranow-Gutek Film, with the support of the Italian consular network in Poland.
