9th Festival of Italian Genre Film | 19 -23 July 2023

Terza Visione

The 9th edition of the festival, from the 19th to the 23rd of July 2023 at the DFF Cinema, will once again embark on a journey through the colorful and diverse world of Italian genre cinema. “Terza Visione” means “Third Season” and is borrowed from a term formerly used in Italy for second-run cinemas. The focus is on the popular Italian cinema of the 1950s through the 1980s, which in its heyday accounted for a large portion of the country’s film production. The wide range of this cinematic cosmos has given rise to different artistic signatures, which the program highlights in many different ways. On Sunday, an “International Day” extends the view beyond Italy to include international genre cinema, which was influenced and inspired by each other, particularly in Europe. All of the 18 feature films on the program will be shown in analog 35 mm film prints from a large number of film archives in different countries. Some of the screenings will be accompanied by introductory talks, short films or historical theatrical trailers. For the opening on 7/19, we are especially happy to welcome a guest from Italy. More information about the program will be available at the end of April.

Guest screenings in Karlsruhe at the end of May
Terza Visione has been invited to present some Italian genre films on the occasion of the 5th Technicolor Film Festival on the Whitsun weekend (May 26-29, 2023) at the Schauburg Karlsruhe, one of the most beautiful cinemas in Germany with its giant Cinerama screen. These films will not be part of the festival program at the cinema of the DFF in July 2023. Especially noteworthy is the program on Friday, May 26, starting at about 6pm, featuring a rare 60’s film and a seldomn shown Sergio Leone film. The full program will be published here in the middle of April: https://www.in70mm.com/news/2023/technicolor/
