Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival (ICFF)

The Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF), presented by IC Savings, is teaming up with multicultural media company CHIN Radio/TV, in partnership with Ontario Place and the Embassy of Italy in Canada, to launch the all new Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival.

The international film series, running from July 20th through July 31st, will feature a thoughtfully curated selection of works from some of the countries most affected by the global health crisis.  A different nation will be represented each night at Ontario Place, including France, Spain, China, Russia, the US, the UK, Brazil, India and Canada, with a special Focus on Italy series, presented in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto.

A portion of ticket sales will go directly to the Canadian Red Cross to assist with COVID-19 relief efforts.

“I have always strongly supported the ICFF’s initiatives, and the solution of a Drive-In Film Festival, which will allow patrons to keep their usual summer appointment with Italian cinema while at the same time maintaining maximum safety, convinced me immediately,” affirmed Italy's Ambassador to Canada, Claudio Taffuri. “Initiatives like this one are what we really need. Even at a time when we are required to remain distanced, we did not want to give up, we did not want to lose contact, and we explored new solutions and new ways to share our cinema culture with our Canadian friends.”

During the festival, audience members will enjoy a short film depicting the beauty and culture Italy has to offer.

Following the Toronto event, a continuation of the Focus on Italy series will take place in the city of Vaughan.

Each evening of the Festival, a feature film will be preceded by live and live-streamed interviews and Question & Answer sessions with actors and directors, as well as short film presentations.
