UWE Film abroad
In partnership with Cinema Rediscovered, Bristol’s innovative festival that brings digital restorations, contemporary classics and film print rarities back to the big screen, UWE Film students this year visited Il Cinema Ritrovato 2019 (22-30 June 2019) in Bologna, fellow UCCN member and UNESCO City of Music.
The annual event, which inspired the creation of Cinema Rediscovered, has been put on by Cineteca di Bologna in ‘the city of the Two Towers’ for more than 30 years. Attracting thousands of film goers, it invites audiences to rediscover the golden age of cinema, the newest restored films and miraculous rarities, screened over nine days across six cinemas – including iconic evening screenings in Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore.
