The ST. ALi Italian Film Festival
October 20 - November 14
Due to the current uncertainty regarding the reopening of cinemas on the east coast, the ST. ALi Italian Film Festival will be moved from a traditional September launch to commence this October.
The festival will open with the Australian premiere of Daniele Luchetti’s The Ties (Lacci) which opened last year’s Venice Film Festival and will also include 2021 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight winner To Chiara (A Chiara); Hidden Away (Volevo nascondermi), starring Berlin International Film Festival Silver Bear winner Elio Germano; Three Perfect Daughters (È per il tuo bene), and the dramatic thriller You Came Back (Lasciami andare), starring festival favourite Stefano Accorsi.
