Lucca Film Festival and Europa Cinema 2021

From October 1 to 10 the Tuscan festival dedicated to cinema returns, with a special tribute to Nino Manfredi

Immersive. This is how the 17th edition of the Lucca Film Festival and Europa Cinema promises to be, taking place this year from October 1 to 10.

A festival in hybrid form, with a program full of screenings, digital meetings and live events such as Effetto Cinema Notte, the section that as every edition will animate the red carpet during the event.

First time instead for Every Screen tv, a film contest within the streaming platform Twitch, created and promoted together with the platform Multiplayer.

To animate the program the international competitions (feature films and short films), to "discover the new talents of cinema". There will also be previews out of competition (films accompanied by the protagonists, which will then be released in Italian cinemas) and the Art section with themed exhibitions such as Stars and Frames, a personal exhibition by Pier Toffoletti, from September 25 to October 22 in the evocative setting of the Church of San Cristoforo.

Among the tributes, that to Nino Manfredi, remembered in the 100 years of his birth through a selection of his films, a dedicated exhibition and guests of his "cinema".

In the program also the Educational section dedicated to schools, with new projects that will involve the classes of the territory with events in web conferencing and in presence, including screenings but also presentations and master classes held by the guests of the Festival.
