Catalogue of the Festival

368 pp.

"How to embark upon a mammoth program of 427 titles in eight days? First of all, it requires curiosity, a quality as essential as breathing for a marathon. To feed and guide your curiosity, you have an invaluable tool in your hands: the catalog. Although there are certainly festivals that are more important than Il Cinema Ritrovato, I do not think that any have a catalog as rich. This year it stretches beyond 360 pages, and it is a treasure trove of knowledge. Paola Cristalli, Alice Autelitano and Alessandro Cavazza have worked on it for months along with twenty curators. After eight days the festival comes to an end, but the contents of Il Cinema Ritrovato remain in its catalog and online. It is the rich fruit of our work destined to last in time ‒ enormous work that for twenty-nine years has been materializing between the last Saturday of June and the first Saturday of July and brings enthusiasts, researchers, restorers, directors, archivists, journalists and scholars from five continents to Bologna". (Gian Luca Farinelli)
