Since December 2008 Gianni Amelio, great Italian film director and cinéphile (Lamerica, Stolen Children, The Way We Laughed), is leading the Torino Film Festival, confirming the reputation of being one of European most important cinematographic event. The Festival purpose is to constitute a meeting point for contemporary International cinema and to provide the opportunity for a discussion on all its perspectives and artistic trends. Particular attention is paid to emerging cinemas and filmmakers.
Three competitive sections (“International Feature Films”, “Italian documentaries” and “Italian Short films”) and the “Out of Competition” sections and Tributes are a multiple and open expression of our critical point of view concerning the state of contemporary cinema, both fiction and documentaries. It brings what we believe are the richest and meaningful moments of the year’s production, its strong points – by filmmaker, trend, geography or genre.
The international reputation of Torino’s retrospectives has been long affirmed thanks to the thoroughness with which we present the entire opus of the featured directors, the quality of the copies we screen and the books which accompany the tributes. In 2008 our retrospectives were devoted to Nagisa Oshima and Nicholas Ray.
