Festa del Cinema di Roma returns to Italian capital.
The 2023 Rome Film Fest runs from 18-29 October, offering cinema fans 12 days of movie premieres, screenings and special events.
The film festival will be based at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, which will host the main screening theatres and a lengthy red carpet, with events also being held in other cultural venues around the city.
Anna Magnani, the Oscar-winning Italian actress who died 50 years ago, is the face of the 18th edition of the Festa del Cinema di Roma which has taken place annually since 2006.
