Cinema Italiano Festival's second edition opened in Wellington on Wednesday, 1 November. The annual celebration of Italian cinema is showcasing an eclectic range of 20 titles at Island Bay's Empire Cinema until 14 November. Festival director, Paolo Rotondo, says his aim to provide New Zealand audiences with a selection that is reflective of what is coming out of Italy now. There are some broad, accessible films in the line-up, documentaries (including the Oscar-nominated Fire at Sea), and some Italian dramas. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the energy and diversity of Italian culture and book your tickets today.
