The Made In Italy film festival is coming to Kensington in early March.

It’s an exciting time for Italian Cinema, with critical accolades for Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty, which won a Golden Globe for best foreign language film, and has also been nominated for an Oscar in the best foreign picture category. I have followed Sorrentino’s career since his first feature film The Consequences of Love in 2004, but there is now an explosion of film-making talent from Italy.

One to watch out for is Zoran, My Nephew The Idiot, winner of the Critics’ Week Public’s Prize at the 2013 Venice International Film Festival, a film about a middle-aged man who unwillingly inherits a nephew. Another highlight is set to be How Strange to be Named Frederico! – a film made by Ettore Scola about Frederico Fellini – which will be shown with an introduction at the film festival. Shot in black and white, the film explores the bond between these two Auteurs. It was released in Italy late last year to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Fellini’s death.
