    For 16 years, Open Roads has proudly offered North American audiences the most diverse and extensive lineup of contemporary Italian film available. The 2016 edition (June 2-8) strikes a satisfying balance between emerging talents and esteemed veterans. The 16-film festival features seven North American premieres and a 40th-anniversary screening of Cannes Best Director winner Ettore Scola’s Ugly, Dirty and Bad in a new restoration.
  • Starting on May 22, and ending on the 31, the Film Society of Lincoln Center presents an all-Italian film series: Titanus, A Family Chronicle of Italian Cinema. Featuring works by filmmakers like Federico Fellini, Vittorio De Seta, Michelangelo Antonioni, Ermanno Olmi, Dario Argento, Vittorio De Sica, and Mario Monicelli, among others, the series focuses mainly on the films produced at Titanus from the late ’40s to the early ’60s.
  • Open Roads New Italian Cinema has returned for its 14th year. One of the most popular annual programs held at Lincoln Center, it has served as the leading North American showcase of contemporary Italian cinema. This year's exceptionally strong and diverse edition, featuring many US premieres, highlighted the latest work from established veterans alongside promising new talents.
  • Antonio Monda, festival co-curator, talks about this year’s festival of new Italian films. He is gratified by the track record of Open Roads. “I am happy because in 13 years we have shown 12 to 15 films every year, so 180 films more or less, and at least 20 released theatrically [in the U.S.]. We pack our theaters every evening and do a very good business in the afternoon, too.” We also talked about Paolo Sorrentino's latest film. His success would “help Italian cinema very much,” says Monda. “La Grande Bellezza” did not win any major awards at Cannes, but critics and audiences praised the film, and its star Toni Servillo, virtually ensuring a run on the festival circuit and a theatrical release"
  • Among the films presented at New Directors/New Films (March 20-31), Film Society of Lincoln Center and Museum of Modern Art’s annual showcase of work by emerging filmmakers from around the world, there is one Italian jewel, L'intervallo by director Leonardo di Costanzo, a portrait of two adolescents thrown together under the eye of the Neapolitan Camorra.
