The twentieth edition of the Porretta Terme Film Festival will take place from 4 to 11 December 2021, returning to the theatre and without abandoning the online version on Mymovies.it. This edition wants to celebrate the return to the theatre without abandoning the online edition that will help us grow and make us known throughout Italy. However, our great goal remains to support and promote theatres, especially those of the Italian province.
For this edition, the Tribute to the Director is dedicated to Gianni Amelio who will be in Porretta on Sunday 5 December.
The splendid Alida Valli will be the face of the XX Edition and a special event will be dedicated to her. 100 years have passed since her birth, a legend of Italian and international cinema, a free and strong woman capable of resisting the lure of Fascism like those of Hollywood.
The Fuori dal Giro Competition is in its ninth edition, increasingly characterizing the Porretta Terme Film Festival.
More and more proud to host the Elio Petri National Award in its third edition, renewed and enriched. Two awards: the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Elio Petri Award to the film by a young director in his first experiences who will have distinguished himself according to the spirit of the Award.
