Italian Film Festival
10 – 15 March, 2017
The annual celebration of Italian cinema returns with a wide-ranging programme that stretches from promising new talents to established greats. Highlights this year include Paolo Virzi’s hugely successful Like Crazy and the Kafkaesque comedy Ears which was one of the discoveries of the Venice Film Festival. The 24th edition of the Festival also pays tribute to the late Ettore Scola with beautiful restorations of two of his finest films including the Oscar nominated A Special Day teaming Sophia Loren with Marcello Mastroianni.
The Italian Film Festival is co-directed by Allan Hunter and Richard Mowe, and is staged in collaboration with the Italian Institute, the Italian Consul General, Glasgow Film Theatre and Sarti.
