Al termine del Festival la ricca rassegna stampa offre spunti di riflessione: il paradiso dei cinefili è fonte di attenta analisi e discussione su testate giornalistiche, social e blog. Il Cinema Ritrovato raccoglie ogni anno considerazioni, approfondimenti ed analisi dettagliate di importanti critici cinematografici da tutto il mondo.
Qui di seguito una raccolta di alcuni articoli sul festival:
“The very most modern classic film festival in the world”
The festival’s motto might be Too much is never enough. Over 500 titles now grace seven venues, if you count the Maggiore, a little piazza featuring carbon-arc projection, and an underground warren i’ll tell you about shortly.
