Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest 2017
Palace of Congresses - Largo Firenze, 1
Dates: from 28/10/2017 to 05/11/2017
In autumn Ravenna turns dark. The most important festival in Italy for sci-fi and horror fans, Ravenna Nighmare Film Fest, and the thriller and noir literary festival GialloLuna NeroNotte unite and bring to Ravenna the most mysterious and darkest sides of contemporary literary and cinema productions.
From Saturday 28 October to Sunday 5 November Ravenna will be invaded by a wealth of appointments with two intense programmes, independent but intertwined one another: events in the morning, literary meetings in the afternoon, screenings at night at the presence of welcome special guests.
Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest is a not-to-be-missed event for all the lovers of international cinema. The main event will be the International Competition for Full-length films, that will present the best of international cinema production worldwide, next to the well-established International Competition for Shorts; furthermore, previews, sneak peeks, events, retrospectives and meetings with the authors.
Two important anniversaries will be celebrated:
- the Nightmare Classic with Metropolis by Fritz Lang, the pioneer of worldwide sci-fi that this year celebrates its 90 years;
- the Opening Nightmare with Nirvana by Oscar-winner Gabriele Salvatores, a cult movie, maybe the first example of top film in Italian sci-fi. For this occasion the film will be screened in its original version, one of the last rare copies preserved in Italian film libraries.
The festival will give space to educational projects, thanks to the appointments with Nightmare School and Master Class. The former includes a series of events tailored for the students of Ravenna; the latter features meetings meant for a non-student audience in collaboration with Fondazione Flaminia per l’Università in Romagna and the Departments for Cultural Assets and Law of the University of Bologna. One of the lecturer will be Alessandro Fabbri, screenwriter of Il ragazzo Invisibile and Il ragazzo invisibile 2, both directed by Gabriele Salvatores, and creator of series 1992 and 1993 with Ludovica Rampoldi and Stefano Sardo.
The festival is directed by Franco Calandrini and realised by Start Cinema with the partecipation of Ravenna City Council - Culture and the support of Regione Emilia Romagna Film Commission.
