Il Cinema Ritrovato On Tour–Minneapolis will feature recently restored archival films at The Main Cinema from May 11–13, 2023. Presented in partnership by Archives on Screen, Twin Cities, the Film Society of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Cineteca di Bologna, the festival will screen eleven highlights from Il Cinema Ritrovato’s 2022 lineup.
To celebrate Opening Night of Minneapolis’s first annual Il Cinema Ritrovato on Tour festival, film critic and historian Pamela Hutchinson will give a talk introducing Il Cinema Ritrovato. Hutchinson will describe the festival, explaining how it is programmed and how it deepens our understanding of the depth and breadth of film history. Her lecture will explore how the festival impacts film programming, spectatorship, scholarship, and criticism around the world, from the archival discoveries first shared at the festival to its support for both film restoration, physical media releases, and the exhibition of archival prints.
The complete list of the screenings is available on the official website.
