Rome’s Cinema Festival starts at the end of the month but we don’t need to wait for it to see foreign movies in orginal version nor we need to go to the very few permanent theatres that still have this kind of movie offer.
The first half of October features three very interesting events for cinema lovers who prefer to see the original versions.
On October 4, Palazzo delle Esposizioni will host the first screening of “Scoprir”, the second edition of the Iberian-american (i.e Spanish, Portuguese + Latin American) cinema festival. Until October 9 you can see for free 18 movies shot between 2006 and 2010 from this cultural area spanning two continents in original version with Italian subtitles.
The same day at 7pm, the Japan Foundation of Rome will inaugurate its new independent movie screening season of Japanese films. As usual the event is free and the movies are in original version with English subtitles. This year Art Theatre Guild‘s movies will be presented to the public. This group produced independent movies from the early 1960s to the mid-70s. Tuesdays, Thursdays at 7pm. Until November 19.
On October 12, Asiatica our favorite and beloved festival of Asian movies will kick off. For 10 days you will see the best films from all over the Asian continent for free and with Italian and/or English subtitles. The programme is not ready yet, but we know it will be very interesting as susual. Check out again their website in a few days to have all the details. The theatre is usually the Capranica, very close to the Pantheon.
Finally, also on October 12, the weekly Internazionale’s documentary film Festival Mondovisioni starts at Palazzo delle Esposizioni. This 5-day event of free screenings will feature 8 of the best documentaries produced last year all over the world in orginal language with Italian subtitles.
