Films are a big part of the Italian cultural experience and are deeply woven in the country’s fabric. Since the development of the Italian film industry in the early 1900s, Italian filmmakers and performers have enjoyed great international acclaim and have influenced film movements throughout the world. As of 2015, Italian films have won 14 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, the most of any country. 

Every year, the ICC presents a series of outstanding contemporary films in our annual Italian Film Festival. We also offer screenings throughout the year in our CineForum series.

Through the lens of drama, comedies and documentaries, our movies broaden the view of Italy and offer a new perspective on the country and its people. Take a journey to Italy without leaving Minnesota.

    Image result for profughi a cinecittàOn Friday, April 24, the Department of French and Italian at the University of Minnesota, and the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/St. Paul, will bring to Minneapolis, Professor Noa Steimatsky, of the University of Chicago, for a screening and discussion of her film, "Refugees in Cinecitta".  Professor Steimatsky completed the film in collaboration with Marco Bertozzi.  The screening and discussion will be held at the Best Buy Theater, located in the Northrup Building, University of Minnesota, and will begin at 3 p.m. on the 24th.  Please contact Lorenzo Fabbri at lfabbri@umn.edu for additional details.  The event is free and open to the public.

    On June 6, 1944 Rome's “city of cinema” was requisitioned by Allied Control Commission to house thousands of war refugees. A modernistic movie complex, though profoundly bombed out, was soon transformed into a refugee camp: Italian homeless on one side, an international field on the other – trespass being strictly forbidden. Cinecittà was the destination for people coming from everywhere: the sons and daughters of Italian colonists in Libia, the displaced people of Rome and Monte Cassino’s bombings, the exiled people of Dalmatia, several Jews who had been interned or imprisoned in German lagers. In this documentary, Marco Bertozzi and Noa Steimatsky follow those very refugees walking in nowadays Cinecittà, letting their story emerge as they move along today’s studios and reality shows’ sets.
