Welcome, Benvenuti to the 2012 Italian Film festival.

I am proud to present to you the programme of the 17th Italian Film festival. The festival continues as the most successful cultural film festival on the national entertainment calendar, equal to all other cultural film festivals combined. Many people are astounded by the fact that the Italian Film festival is so much bigger than anything else. But it is easily explained. New Zealanders love all things Italian!

I believe that the 2012 event has a fantastic lineup of films. A mouthwatering group covering many genres, particularly those that appeal to the majority of our dedicated film-goers: comedy, romantic comedy and drama, plus two documentaries that open windows on life in Italy today, and Oscar winner 'Cinema Paradiso' from 1988.

Despite the festival continuing to grow and delight those who see the films, it is a victim of the recessionary environment that exists within NZ. Financial support from both business and government for the event continues to fall, to where it is now very limited. Though frustrating given the festival's scope and popularity, this is the reality. But we have worked hard to ensure you won't miss out - the show will go on! Thank you to those festival partners who continue to support the event.

So now it is for you to spend time perusing the film selection, coupled with the screening schedule, to work out how you are going to indulge your passion for Italian cinema - a tough ask with all the delights on offer this year. If you're having trouble narrowing down your choices, my recommendation is simply to determine those periods when you can make time, and go and see the film that is screening then. I am certain you will not be disappointed. Viva il cinema italiano!
