Against all odds it is Festa again in Rome for Cinema makers & lovers with the Rome Film Fest, 15-25 October 2020

Oct 09 2020

By Francesca LombardoFollowing in the footsteps of Venice, Rome too made a massive effort this year not miss the 15th Edition of the Rome Film Festival despite Covid19. The film festival will be packed with film screenings from all over the world, special encounters, conferences and plenty of special sections and exhibitions. 

From the 15th to the 25th of October, the Auditorium Parco della Musica will see actors, actresses, directors, screenwriters, and above all audiences return to the Fest’s traditional venue and recreate that marvellous festive atmosphere created by partaking in the passion for film.

This year’s official poster for the Rome Film Fest is photo of two film icons: Sidney Poitier and Paul Newman in a relaxed moment on the set of Paris Blues.

Edward Norton is one of the best actors of his generation with an Oscar nomination under his belt for his breakthrough role in Primal Fear, but he has always aspired to approach film making from a 360 degrees perspective not only as an actor but as a writer, scriptwriting, director and as a producer.

And in Motherless Brooklyn, a period film set in a highly corrupted new York in the fifties – first presented at the Toronto Film Festival last year – he embodies all that as he has been the main actor, the scriptwriter and also the director.
