Strong international flavour to Day 6 of the Rome Film Festival
There is plenty of international cinema on Tuesday 21 October at the ninth edition of the Rome Film Festival which is based at the Auditorium Parco della Musica until 25 October.
The festival kicks off at 10.30 with the screening of Tusk by Kevin Smith, the director of cult films such as Clerks, Mallrats and Dogma, in the Sala Sinopoli.
At 17.00 in the Sala Petrassi, audiences can enjoy Roma Termini, a look at the people who live in Rome's main train station, and the first feature film by Florentine director Bartolomeo Pampaloni.
Later that evening there is the European premiere of the South American Dólares de Arena (Sand Dollars) by Laura Amelia Guzman and Israel Cárdena, their fourth joint feature-film at 19.30 in the Sala Petrassi.
One of the highlights of the day is the world premiere of Italy's Tre tocchi by Marco Risi at 20.00 in the Sala Petrassi at the Auditorium Parco della Musica. The film charts the ups and downs of six actors and how their profoundly different lives are united by two great passions, football and their work.
There are also a number of interesting screenings throughout the day at the nearby MAXXI Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI secolo.
