The 2021 Italian Film Festival is back in Brisbane, and lovers of Italian film will be spoiled for choice. Of course, there will be the classics, with the Italian screen goddesses, Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece, The Leopard, and a Roberto Rossellini Retrospective. And #IFF will feature sixteen films in the New Italian Cinema category. Ian Were has previewed two new offerings here: Claudio Noce’s Padrenostro and Giorgio Diritti’s Hidden Away.
The festival screens at the Palace James and Barracks cinemas from 20 October until 14 November 2021.
