The ‘mini’ JIFF – Johannesburg Italian Film Festival was held in May 2018 as a teaser to the main event in November. It was ‘mini’ in size but not quality!
@ the Bioscope
We screened one film every Sunday in May at 1pm. Tickets were R30.
6th of May “Bianca come il latte rossa come il sangue”
13th of May “Pazze di me”
20th of May “Un ragazzo d’oro”
27th of May “Hotel Meina”
@ the Killarney Cinema
In addition, we celebrated two of the most important Italian actors/directors, Vittorio Gassman and Luciano Salce, with the screening of two films at Killarney Cinema on the 19th of May. The two screenings were free:
Slalom (1965) by Luciano Salce with Vittorio Gassman (and music by Ennio Morricone)
I soliti ignoti (Big Deal on Madonna Street – 1958) by Mario Monicelli with Vittorio Gassman
