Thematic retrospective

Under more generic, allegorically-entitled headings, the Festival has grouped together films not commonly offered (even in specialised sections) and which nevertheless deserve filmgoers’ attention. Based on this philosophy, a number of cycles have seen the light, including "The Guys in the Photo", "Forgotten Films"; "You Only Live Once", "The Best 100 Years in our Lives", "The European Adventure", "Spanish Cinema Discoveries", "The Red Nightmare", "A Long Absence", the two editions dedicated to post-war Italian comedy, entitled "Hunger, Humour and Fantasy" and "The Boom Italian-Style", or "The TV Generation", "It Happened Yesterday", "50 from the 50s", "Amongst Friends and Neighbours", "Incorrect@s", "Rebellious and Untamed", "Emigrants", "Cold Fever", "Japanese Film Noir", "Backwash; cutting edge of French cinema", ".doc – New paths of non-fiction" or "American Way of Death: American film noir 1990-2010". "Digital Shadows: Last generation Chinese film", "Very Funny Things. New American comedy", "In Progress. Ten years with Latin American cinema", "Animatopia. New paths of animation cinema", "Eastern Promises. Portrait of Eastern Europe in 50 films", "New Japanese independent cinema 2000-2015", and "The Act of Killing. Cinema and global violence", are the last of these cycles.
