It is our great pleasure to present the fourth edition of the Cinema Italiano Festival. This year, we are also pleased to announce that Studio Italia (purveyors of some of the most exquisite Italian furniture in New Zealand) are our new Naming Sponsor for the next 3 years! Italian Cinema has always celebrated design, architecture, style and passion and Studio Italia represents the finest Italian craftsmanship and innovation, ensuring our interiors are forever and supremely elevated.
in 2019, the Festival reaches out to an even wider audience, extending beyond Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, Nelson, Hawke's Bay, Matakana, Waiheke Island, Arrowtown and Whakatane to include Taupo, New Plymouth, Masterton, Cambridge and Martinborough . The Programme, that combines the best in contemporary Italian cinema with masterpieces from Italy's rich cinematic tradition, provides meaningful insights into society. At the same time it acknowledges the strong cultural relationship between Italy and New Zealand. We invite you to take this opportunity to immerse yourself in the energy and diversity of Italian culture through the evocative images offered by this year's selection of films. Buona visione x
