The popular Italian Film & Culture Festival returns to Albuquerque Tuesday, March 21, through Sunday, March 26. This year’s 10th annual outing will bring in another strong lineup of recent, award-winning and highly acclaimed Italian films for their local premieres. All films will be screened in Italian with English subtitles. Things start out on Tuesday, March 21, at 5pm with “L’Inaugurazione,” a grand opening party with a buffet and wine reception catered by Scalo Northern Italian Grill, followed by the simpaticissimo duo of Donatella and Ennio and a live dance performance by NDI New Mexico. The evening’s festivities are capped off at 6:45pm with a screening of the Opening Night film Noi e la Giulia (The Legendary Giulia and Other Miracles). This 2015 comedy concerns a group of strangers who go into business, hoping to transform an abandoned farmhouse into an agriturisma destination. Tickets for the party and the film can be purchased separately or together. Other highlights include the horse-racing documentary Palio, the Gulf War drama Una Storia Sbagliata (Another South) and the contemporary fairy tale Io, Arlecchino (I, Harlequin). The closing night film/dinner event includes a screening of the social comedy Il Nome del Figlio (An Italian Name), in which an expecting couple’s friendly dinner party devolves into mayhem when they announce the name they’ve chosen for their baby. All films and events—other than the “Il Gran Finale” dinner at Scalo Northern Italian Grill—will be held at the historic Hiland Theater (4800 Central SE. Tickets are $10 online or $12 at the door. You can purchase an all-festival pass for $130 or an all-film pass for $60. All tickets/passes, plus a complete schedule of films and times can be found at italianfilmfest.org.
