MOVIES IN ENGLISH:  A showcase for international feature length documentaries as well as short films that cover a variety of subjects (with Italian and English subtitles when needed), Florence’s annual Festival dei Popoli is screening one movie a day from its vast archive amassed during its 60-year history on its Facebook and Instagram accounts: @festivaldeipopoli.

Lo Schermo dell’arte film festival, an international project based in Florence exploring the relationship between contemporary art and cinema, has responded to restrictions on cultural life by streaming several European artist films from their archive for free in a partnership with the platform MYmovies. Taking place in November every year since 2008, Lo Schermo dell’arte Film Festival has championed films either by artists or about art.

The movies will be made available to watch on MYmovie’s website. The offerings are an eclectic range catering to all tastes: feature-lengths and shorts, arthouse and documentary mainly comprising works of Italian, British, French and German origin (all with English and Italian subtitles).  (will farnham)
