Isola del Cinema: open-air cinema on Tiber Island

Rome's annual summer film festival returns to Isola Tiberina.

13 June-2 Sept. Celebrating 25 years, this quality cinema event lights up the Isola Tiberina in the middle of Rome's river Tiber each evening over the summer, from 13 June until 2 September.

Under three sections: Innovation, Environment and Tourism, the 2019 edition of this multi-faceted festival includes 80 nights of screenings, encounters, masterclasses and discussions with important figures from the world of film.

The festival's programme comprises films by emerging directors, independent cinema, documentaries and major international productions, including cult classics and films screened in their original language.

There will also be parallel cultural events dedicated to music, literature, photography and poetry with cinematic connections.

The festival's world cinema section, Isola Mondo, will feature independent international movies, organised in collaboration with embassies and foreign cultural institutions.

Novelties this year include virtual reality cinema and a special event in honour of the late film director Sergio Leone on the 90th anniversary of his birth.
