Cinema Lessons 2023

This year too, Il Cinema Ritrovato will provide an extraordinary forum for exchange and discussion while also offering the op- portunity to attend great film masterclasses; Wim Wenders, Ruben Östlund, Joe Dante, Luca Guadagnino, Barbet Schroeder, the iconic Nan Goldin, the director of the Cannes Film Festival and the Institut Lumière Thierry Frémaux, the director of the Cinémathèque suisse Frédéric Maire, Masolino, Caterina and Silvia d’Amico – here to celebrate the legacy of their mother Suso and with Angela Allen, to remember Franco Zeffirelli on his 100 birthday. The future of African film archives will be the focus of a panel discussion with some of those who are actively involved in their preservation: Aboubakar Sanogo, Mohamed Challouf, Germain Coly, Marco Lena, Tiziana Manfredi and Maxime Grember; a conversation between editor Thelma Schoonmaker, Ian Christie and James Bell will explore the cinema of Michael Powell and finally talks with producer Jeremy Thomas and film historian Philippe Garnier. At the end of the festival, we will reveal the recipients of this year’s Boarini Awards, dedicated to those who fight, at an international level, for the preservation of film heritage and its dissemination.
