Italian Film Festival 2009

Heads up, people! This year's Italian Film Festival will run from 4th to 20th June (with the 3rd being an invite only Opening Night event), and the line up and schedule of films are already available in full here as a PDF file download.

Presented by the Italian Cultural Institute in partnership with the Singapore Film Society, The Picturehouse, Cathay Cineplex, The Arts House and the National Library Board, this year's lineup seemed to have expanded, not only in screening venues as already listed, but having a slate of FREE - yes you read that right - screenings during the festival period too!

2 fringe programmes will be made FREE to the public, and they are no pushover films, mind you. For those who are into animation, then you shouldn't miss Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto's shorts and feature length films. But the other fringe programme piqued my interest sky high since I'm a fan of the thriller genre. A total of 4 "Gialli" - thriller genre - films are going to be shown at The Arts House, so there's no prizes for guessing where I'll be during that week!

From the main programme, I'd likely be catching The Girl by the Lake, Good Morning Heartache, and A Whole Life Ahead. If time permits, then perhaps The Wind Blows Round and Skylark Farm starring Paz Vega as well.

Seriously, I can't wait! Share with me your choice of films?
