Classici fuori Mostra

3rd Permanent Festival of restored films

From February 10th through May 19th, every Thursday at 7 pm the Cinema Rossini movie theatre in Venice will host the third edition of the film series Classici fuori Mostra. Permanent Festival of Restored Films, organized by La Biennale di Venezia in collaboration with the City of Venice’s Circuito Cinema and the professors of film studies at the Università Ca’ Foscari in Venice and the Università IUAV in Venice.

Classici fuori Mostra

The programme will include thirteen film classics (and one “behind the scenes”) recently restored by the most important film libraries around the world, in the original language version with subtitles in Italian. Each film will be introduced by an expert and followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. There will be special discounts for students (reduced student ticket price 3 euro, student pass 30 euro, full price ticket 6 euro).

Statement from
Alberto Barbera

Classici fuori Mostra is back, preceded by the success of the two previous editions, held respectively in the open-air arena at the Giardini in the summer of 2020 and at the Teatro Piccolo Arsenale in the summer of 2021 – explains the Director of the Venice International Film Festival Alberto Barbera. The third edition not only gives continuity to the idea of proposing activities that extend beyond the traditional timeframe of the Venice Film Festival, by appealing to the residents, it also has another objective: to involve the vast population of students that energizes Venice – relying on the real and valuable collaboration of the city’s Universities and its professors of film studies, with the aim of making the students the protagonists of this initiative. For this reason, each film will be introduced by an expert (professors and critics have enthusiastically agreed to take on this mediation challenge) and followed by a “Q&A” session at the end of the screening. This is a re-edition of the time-tested film forum formula, which is coming back in style by virtue of the curiosity and the desire for debate that cinema again appears to be stimulating after years of passive home viewing”.
