Il Cinema Ritrovato

Restoration has saved many great films that would have otherwise disintegrated and disappeared. Each summer in Italy, Cineteca di Bologna presents an eight-day “cinema ritrovato” festival of early silent film, restored films and director portraits. At SFTV, we believe the best way to honor the invaluable contribution of restoration work is through the exhibition and viewing of these great films. In this light, the film school is delighted to offer our students and community the opportunity to see a selection of restored works from recent festivals on the large screen. Join us!
