fellinis roma

Thursday, 2 May, 2024 5.30 p.m.

The anniversary programme will begin with Roma – Federico Fellini’s ode to the Italian capital – which was the first film to screen at GFT on the day we opened in 1974.

Fellini’s monumental and outlandish tribute to his beloved Rome, The Eternal City, begins with Fellini as a youngster living in the Italian countryside. In school he studies the eclectic history of ancient Rome and then is introduced, as a young man, to the real thing — arriving in this strange new city on the outbreak of the Second World War. Here, through a series of vignettes brimming with satire and spark, the filmmaker comes to grips with a sprawling Rome.

The screening will begin with a special introduction to kick off our month of celebrations.

Tickets for the anniversary programme of films go on sale at 12pm (noon) on Wednesday 3 April from glasgowfilm.org and the GFT Box Office 0141 332 6535
