The Cinema Studies Program and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Philadelphia and N.I.C.E. New Italian Cinema Events, present the 2012 edition of New Authors of Italian Cinema. This four-day festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema Studies) and aims at promoting Italian Cinema abroad. Eight of the best feature films directed in the past year by Italy's most promising filmmakers will be presented on the Philadelphia screen. In order to establish an ideal conversation between new filmic and academic "authors," one of Penn's Italian PhD students will introduce and discuss each film. The final remarks will be addressed by Stefania Benini, Professor of Italian Cinema at the University of Pennsylvania.
