At SFTV we believe the best way to honor the invaluable contribution of restoration work is through the exhibition and viewing of great films. Each year, the Cineteca di Bologna, one of Europe’s most renowned archives for film restoration and preservation, and SFTV present Il Cinema Ritrovato on Tour, a mini-film festival that offers our students and community the chance to see lovingly restored works on the large screen.
The 2020 program featured many acclaimed filmmakers, including Jane Campion, Djibril Diop Mambéty, Sergio Leone, Louis Malle, Agnès Varda, and more.
The line-up included the 40th-anniversary restoration of “Grease," the original version of suspense-thriller “Suspiria,” and perennial classics like “City Lights."
A selection of classic restored films from acclaimed filmmakers Arthur Penn, John Murray Anderson, Malcolm St. Clair, Marlon Brando, Antonio Pietrangeli, and more.
The program featured works from Sergio Leone, Satyajit Ray, Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rossellini, Stig Björkman, and more!
