50 Giorni di Cinema 2014
Since 2007, “50 Days” has brought a season of high-quality film to the capital of Tuscany.
The playbill is composed of ten international festivals taking place in Florence: festivals that are bound together in a close, prolific cooperation through a single calendar, a single, shared location, and the support of the staff from the Cinema Section of Fondazione Sistema Toscana. Each year, 50 Days highlights a particular theme, which it emphasises so as to encourage extensive reflection sparked by the films in its programme. This year the festival is dedicated to the “future”, to young people depicted on the big screen and to “youthful” cinema created by those who keep experimenting – at any age – with the language of the seventh art.
50 Days will open on 29 October with the Festival dei Popoli International Documentary Film Festival, now in its 55th year.
