The College of Charleston will present the 10th Annual Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival on October 6 – 9, 2016 in Charleston. Note: Due to Hurricane Matthew, the festival is rescheduled for October 20 – 23, 2016. The purpose of the festival is to bring contemporary Italian cinema to South Carolina audiences with the hope that foreign film will open a window of understanding into what makes people unique and yet alike, as humans. South Carolina Humanities supported the 2016 festival with a Mini Grant.
The 2016 Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival will screen 12 films, including comedies, dramas, and documentaries. On Saturday, October 8, there will be a conversation with the artists over coffee, featuring special guests Matteo Bini (cowriter and codirector of I, Harlequin), Massimo Guadioso (director of Un Paese Quazi Perfetto), and other directors and screenwriters whose films are being shown at the 2016 festival.
More information about the festival, including the full program and schedule, can be found on the website at: http://www.nuovocinemaitaliano.com/.
The mission of SC Humanities is to enrich the cultural and intellectual lives of all South Carolinians.

It presents and/or supports literary initiatives, lectures, exhibits, festivals, publications, oral history projects, videos and other humanities-based experiences that directly or indirectly reach more than 250,000 citizens annually.
