The "cinephiles' paradise" is a space-time bubble where one can enjoy the wonders and the thousand faces of cinema, from the aesthetic to the socio-cultural, to the technical. At the same time, a place to discover those (not so) rare cases in which cinema reveals its secrets and places them at the centre of the scene. When cinema takes a moment to reflect on itself, to play with its characteristics and limitations.
#Ritrovati e Restaurati
For many years, the programme has been excavating a history of cinema from a female perspective. In 2021, this tendency emerges in all of the different sections, with new discoveries and celebrations of female actors, directors, scriptwriters and critics.

Ad un giorno dalla fine della XXXIII edizione del festival del Cinema Ritrovato, Grover Crisp presenta il restauro, realizzato da Sony Pictures Entertainment, di Husbands (Mariti, 1970) di John Cassavetes. All’interno della sezione Ritrovati e Restaurati, il film torna in sala con grande vitalità. Un film duro, definito dallo stesso regista come una commedia anche se, lui stesso ammette, le parole che lo descrivono meglio sono angoscia ed esasperazione.
First day of projections in Sala Mastroianni. A series of mute from different countries and of various lengths, accompanied by live music. Introduced by Mariann Lewinsky, Andrea Meneghelli and other experts. The only feature film projected, The Red Lantern, closed the day.
On the first day of the 33rd edition of Il Cinema Ritrovato, the documentary O PÃO (Portugal, 1959 - 1963) opened the selection in the large Arlecchino theater that will host films in the Found and Restored section of the festival.
Cinema, which never fully leaves Bologna throughout the year, is about to reclaim the streets of the city as it plays host to one of the greatest motion picture parties in the world, offering some 500 films (no typo, the figure is correct!), talks, presentations and countless other events celebrating cinema in all forms, shapes and sizes. With a brilliant array of great films, masterpieces and rarities lined up, the past has never been so close to us and the projections so entwined with our daily life.

Festival Opening: Bertrand Tavernier presents Voyage à travers le cinéma français Sala Auditorium – Laboratori delle Arti UniBo, at 4pmBertrand Tavernier is the guest of honour at this edition, which opens on the Lumière brothers and therefore the essence of cinema, its beginnings, its many reasons for being. This year Tavernier, director of some of the most beautiful French films of the last forty years, presents in Bologna (after the Cannes premiere) his own personal voyage through the cinema of his country, as a sort of best wishes for the opening of the festival (accompanying him will be producers Jérôme and Nicolas Seydoux). It represents a personal recherche du cinéma perdu that interweaves autobiographical evocations with fabulous discoveries concerning a variety of film-makers who were loved, interviewed, known and supported by Tavernier. “It is like a dear friend telling us about the loves of his life, recounting his innermost secrets. Tavernier does this in a lucid, cultured, simple and moving way. We discover another Gabin, another Renoir, and many of the films that are in the Cinema Ritrovato Programme” (Gian Luca Farinelli). Que la fête commence!
