Description:
EN/ Founded in 2006, the Incontri Cinematografici di Stresa is an international film event, whose object is a dynamic comparison between Italian and European cinema. In 2009, after three editions exclusively focused on Italy and Switzerland, the festival opened up to other European nations (starting from French-speaking Belgium), chosen among countries with a low-to-medium volume of production. This process of gradual enlargement continues in the fifth edition, whose programme selection will also include Portugal and Flemish-speaking Belgium. The seven-day programme features screenings, premieres, retrospectives, special events and public meetings, which are meant to explore the cinematographies of the invited countries and promote the relationships among them. The highlight of the festival programme are the traditional open-air screenings, which this year will take place in Piazza Cadorna, in the very heart of the old city centre. The programme also includes more spectacular events – such as readings, concerts, and the festival’s “happy hours”, with live music – scattered round the city centre, in the most charming spots of Stresa, so as to turn the whole city into a festival venue.
