"...an irresistibly stylish 21st century update."

The first film version – directed by Mario Bava - was released back in 1968. After more than five decades, Marco and Antonio Manetti deliver an irresistibly stylish 21st century update, with Luca Marinelli (Martin Eden) and Miriam Leone (Sweet Dreams) in the lead roles.


Scotland’s annual celebration of the best in Italian cinema returns with an exciting, wide-ranging selection from the past twelve months. Featuring work from both established auteurs such as Marco Bellocchio and Wilma Labate as well as emerging directors such as Michela Cescon and Silvia Brunelli, this year’s programme blends a variety of genres, styles and registers and, as ever, spans the length and breadth of the peninsula. Most of the titles are UK or Scottish premieres, including our opening film, Michelangelo Frammartino’s Il BucoThe retrospective screenings include a tribute to the late Italian film icon Monica Vitti and a centenary celebration of the great political filmmaker Francesco Rosi.

The Italian Film Festival is programmed by Dr Pasquale Iannone - who will introduce selected screenings – and is supported by Creative Scotland and the Italian Institute of Culture.
