Here’s something to look forward to while staying at home during the quarantine! The Philippine Italian Association will bring the fifth edition of Italian MovieMov to the Philippines through its first ever online film festival. In its fifth year of collaborating with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) under its Film Cultural Exchange Program (FCEP), Italian MovieMov will partner with My Movies to organize a virtual cinema from April 21 to 26 that can accomodate 300 online attendees under the banner MovieMov Goes Online.

This year’s edition of Italian MovieMov will screen six (6) contemporary Italian films and an Italian classic. Laura Chiossone’s Genitori Quasi Perfetti opens the festival on April 21 and will be followed by the screenings of Lontano Lontano, La Dea Fortuna, Il Testimone Invisible, Fiore Gemello, and Il Colpo Del Cane.

The festival will conclude with the classic Federico Fellini Film, La Dolce Vita. Chosen as this year’s cornerstone film, La Dolce Vita, is Fellini’s satirical drama depicting the hedonistic lives of the post-world war 2 Italian upper-class. La Dolce Vita won the Palme d’Or for the Cannes Film Festival upon its release in 1960 and claimed the Best Foreign Film in that year’s Academy Awards. Since then, it has become a classic of world cinema, and is often considered fixture of Fellini’s ouvre and one of his many masterpieces.

La Dolce Vita will screen under the festival’s Fellini 100 section which will conclude the online festival by celebrating the acclaimed Italian director’s 100th birth anniversary.

With 300 online attendees, the Film Festival will allow for more people beyond the 100 person capacity of the Cinematheque Centre Manila where it is usually held.

Through Italian MovieMov, the Philippine Italian Association aims to build a platform for the cultural and commercial promotion of contemporary Italian cinema in the Philippine market and establish a “continuous dialogue with local realities.” It was established by Goffredo Betini in 2016 in partnership with FDCP and screened at Cinematheque Centre Manila.
