Pesaro Film Festival 2011 will be held from June 19-27, 2011, at Via Emilio Faà di Bruno, Rome, Italy. Founded in Pesaro in 1965 by Bruno Torri and Lino Miccichè, the Pesaro Film Festival is also known as the Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema. The festival has been a window to new cinema ever since its founding. This exhibition for new cinema has in the past years gathered and presented all the principal films of the Nouvelles Vagues that developed during the 60s and 70s in Western and Eastern Europe, in Latin America (cinema novo and a retrospective of Cuban films) and in Asia (with a new Japanese cinema retrospective). The festival has more recently been focused on the discovery of emerging filmmakers, spotlighting countries such as China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Iran. However, at the same time, the festival has always been keeping a careful eye on all international cinemas that offers new expressive forms and languages – from Chantal Akerman to Michael Snow. The festival attracts more than 30,000 people, including independent distributors and producers, every year. Rome, the capital of Italy, is quite accessible and well connected by leading international airlines that operate direct, nonstop flights from major cities around the world. If you are traveling from the US then you should better think of taking business class flights to Rome
for a comfortable journey as it takes more than 9 hours to reach from the US. Italy’s flag carrier Alitalia offers the most nonstop flights. Besides Alitalia, travelers from the US need to check out multiple travel websites and compare airline prices to get the best flight deals
on their tickets. Leading US carriers such as Continental Airlines, US Airways, and others offer nonstop flights, and are the best option for the visitors from US to visit Rome to attend the event.
The Pesaro Film Festival will give an excellent opportunity to film buffs on a Rome vacation to enjoy the work of emerging filmmakers from around the world at various locations throughout the city this June. The 46th edition of the Pesaro Film Festival 2011 will be dedicating its largest section to the new Russian cinema of the new millennium under the direction of Giovanni Spagoletti. Besides, the Pesaro Film Festival is also organizing “Women in Cinema”, in collaboration with the Russian Foundation for Culture. Among other major highlights include the 24th Special Event of Italian cinema dedicated to Carlo Lizzani, whose retrospective will allow for the examination of both film history and Italian history of the past 50 years. Flights to Rome in usually June to the beginning of September are most expensive due to peak season. The best way to get flight tickets for cheap rates is to book them in advance. Known for its wide variety of film genres, regularly featuring documentary, drama, experimental, foreign language and romance films, the Pesaro Film Festival 2011 is all set to enthrall the movie lovers from world over.
