Classici fuori Mostra

4th Permanent Festival of Restored Films

From March 2 through May 17 at 7 pm, the Cinema Rossini movie theatre in Venice will host the fourth 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 present ten film classics recently restored by the major 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, reduced student pass 30 euro, full price ticket 6 euro).

Statement from
Alberto Barbera

“It is said that good habits should never be lost – states the artistic director of the Venice Film Festival, Alberto Barbera – and so, in the wake of the success of the previous three editions, La Biennale once again presents a selection of restored films for a series that is beginning to look like a permanent event. Classici Fuori Mostra offers the valuable opportunity to see perfectly restored films in the best of conditions one could aspire to: an appropriately equipped movie theatre, the attendance of a focused audience of film buffs, the presentation of a critic who will also lead the discussion that follows the screening”.


Screenings begin at 7:00 pm
