The fourth edition of the Italian
Film Festival in Malaga opens on September 17th, 2021. The
program includes features, shorts and parallel activities, such as a three-day
workshop on the cinematic practice and a talk with Goya-winning scriptwriter
The event is patronized by the
Italian Embassy and organized by the Honorary Consulate of Malaga, the
University of Malaga and the Dante Alighieri Society. “Culture, which does not
suffer from viruses, is actually a tool to overcome complicated moments, such
as the pandemic, and it contributes to develop the Italo-Spanish relationships
as in this specific case,” states Riccardo Guariglia, Italian Ambassador in
Spain, in his video message for the festival opening.
In order to “combine both culture
and safety”, the screenings are held both physically and virtually. This year’s
theme is the family as an homage to Ettore Scola, whose film La
famiglia (1987) will be screened during the event.
