About Open Roads: New Italian Cinema

Open Roads: New Italian Cinema is an annual showcase of the best in new Italian cinema. This year’s edition unveils a broad and diverse selection of Italy’s most exciting films, all North American, U.S., or New York premieres, with appearances and discussions by several of the filmmakers. “I think we have an especially strong lineup at this year’s Open Roads, which is nothing if not an encouraging sign of things to come as we continue to move forward from the production pauses and shutdowns wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dan Sullivan, FLC Programmer. “A satisfying mix of the familiar and the new, of low- and higher-budget movies, of fresh takes on the genre film and consummately artful period dramas (not to mention a comedy or two): fans of Italian cinema have a lot to look forward to in this year’s edition.”

“The program of Open Roads confirms the good health of our cinema and the way it succeeds in exploring the genres and seasons of life with the same extraordinary intensity,” said Nicola Maccanico, CEO of Cinecittà. “All the credit goes especially to the Italian producers who were able to meet the global challenge of the new audiovisual market and to the directors confirming the Italian talent to mix images, stories, and emotions with interpretations which go beyond our borders. The delegation representing our cinema in New York consists of some of these talents who will keep contributing to make our cinema rise around the world.”

Co-presented by Film at Lincoln Center and Cinecittà. Organized by Dan Sullivan of Film at Lincoln Center and by Monique Catalino, Carla Cattani, Griselda Guerrasio, and Rossella Rinaldi of Cinecittà, Rome.

Open Roads is supported in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in NY and with the support of Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò NYU, ITA Airways, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
