Heritage films, retro-cult or little known films, which personify the essence of genre cinema. What better setting than the superb screen of the Max Linder Panorama to have them (re)discovered, in their original or restored versions.
Mad Movies' 50 year anniversary
Join us as we celebrate! Specially for the 50th anniversary of Mad Movies magazine - faithful companion of the PIFFF since its creation in 2011 - join us for an exceptional 35 mm screening of a visionary cinematographic work by Kathryn Bigelow. Presented by Fausto Fasulo, the magazine’s editor-in-chief and managing editor, Strange Days will be followed by an opportunity to meet the Mad Movies’ team and share their thoughts on how it is to write about genre cinema in the light of an uncertain, tumultuous time for print media. Sounds like a lively debate, don’t you think?
Extreme films: they disturb, they make your eyes sore and they deserve this very special place in our programming.
