50 days of Cinema, 150 screening, 9 festivals, 7 special events and 50 thousands visitors in the previous editions.
These are just some of the numbers associated with the 5th edition of the “The 50 days of International Cinema Festival” that will take place at Cinema Odeon in Florence’s Piazza Strozzi.
The 50 days of International Cinema Festival was born in 2007 as a project of the Regional Mediateca of Tuscany Film Commission, in collaboration with the Region of Tuscany, the province and the council.
The project is meant to launch a proper “cinema fall season” that gives voice to alternative, underground and independent moviemakers and producers who might not otherwise have a chance to gain visibility.
In past editions the “50 Days” festival has hosted more than 50.000 visitors yearly, attracting the masses with a schedule composed of: full-length film, short films, docufiction, artist videos, previews, meetings with the authors, talks etc in a venue that is a rare example of Art Déco in Florence and one of the oldest and most valuable cinemas in Italy.
