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 2013, Italian films have won 13 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, the most of any country. 

 The ICC is pleased to present a series of outstanding contemporary films in our annual Italian Film Festival, now entering its 7th edition. 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.

    This 2013 documentary is an inspiring portrait of Nino Corvato, Checchino Fonticoli and Joe Centofanti, three Italian master tailors who confront the decline of the apprentice system as they navigate their challenging roles in the twilight of their career. The film unravels the mystery of their artistry and reveals how their passionate devotion to their craft is akin to a religion.
