Event Description

The Vancouver Italian Film Festival migrates online for our 2021 iteration, available on VIFF Connect (to audiences in BC and Alberta) between January 8 – 21. Now in its 8th year, the festival is a co-presentation between VIFF, Il Centro-Italian Cultural Centre, and the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver.

Festival Pass: $25
Single Tickets: $9

The festival features...

PINOCCHIO - Described by critics as “a landmark adaptation”, and a big hit in Italy last Christmas, new, acclaimed, live-action version of Pinocchio is enchanting viewing for all ages. With Roberto Benigni as Geppetto, and directed by the versatile Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah; Dogman; Tale of Tales).

THE TIES (Lacci) - Hot from opening the Venice Film Festival in the fall, we have the new film from the director of Our Lives (La nostra vita), Daniele Luchetti. THE TIES (Lacci) is a piercing study of adultery and betrayal with superb performances from Alba Rohrwacher and Luigi Lo Cascio.

SIN (Il peccato) – directed by Andrei Konchalovski – is a profound and unsettling historical drama starring Alberto Testone as the XVI century artist Michelangelo. It was the closing night film at the Rome Film Festival.

A tribute to the late, great composer Ennio Morricone, who passed away in summer 2020, enjoy Sergio Corbucci’s extraordinary spaghetti western, THE GREAT SILENCE (Il grande silenzio), which Morricone scored. Followed by a Film Studies lecture on Ennio Morricone by Will Ross.
