CINEMA ITALIANO FESTIVAL 2021


It is our great pleasure to present the Sixth Edition of the Studio Italia Cinema Italiano Festival / Studio Italia Italian Film Festival NZ in Christchurch at the Lumiere Cinemas in the Arts Centre Christchurch - Home to International Cinema!
Studio Italia (purveyors of some of the most exquisite Italian furniture in New Zealand) is again our Naming Sponsor for the Italian Film Festival NZ. Italian Cinema has always celebrated design, architecture, style and passion and Studio Italia represents the finest Italian craftsmanship and innovation, ensuring our interiors are forever and supremely elevated.
We have tried to curate a Programme that combines the best in contemporary Italian cinema with masterpieces from Italy's rich cinematic tradition that also provides meaningful insights into society. At the same time we want to acknowledge the strong cultural relationship between Italy and New Zealand and this year the Italian Embassy in New Zealand are providing the support for us to be able to do this better. We invite you to take this opportunity to immerse yourself in the energy and diversity of Italian culture through the evocative images offered by this year's selection of films. Buona visione x
