Italo Cannes due

Fest highlights to unspool in Rome, Milan

ROME — Italians who couldn’t face the crush on the Croisette this year will once again have the opportunity to see what the Cannes Film Festival had to offer — including Theo Angelopoulos’ Palme d’Or-winning “An Eternity and a Day” — when extensive highlights from the lineup travel to Rome and Milan next month.

Organized by entertainment industry association AGIS and exhibitors org ANEC, in collaboration with the cultural administrations of the two cities, the seasons run June 4-10 in Rome and June 8-14 in Milan. This year, for the first time, a low-price subscription will be available in addition to individual tickets, covering the entire spin-off fest of about 30 features.

Discussions after screenings

The complete lineup of the Directors Fortnight and Cinemas en France sections will be screened, among them Camera d’Or winner “Slam,” by Marc Levin and Todd Solondz’s “Happiness,” one of the biggest hits of the fest. The majority of titles featured in the Critics Week selection also will be included, with many screenings followed by discussions with directors.

Key titles from the official competition and Un Certain Regard sections also will be shown in special previews prior to their release later this year. These include Tsai Ming-liang’s “The Hole,” which won the international critics’ prize, Hal Hartley’s best screenplay winner, “Henry Fool,” Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Celebration,” which scored a Jury Prize, and John Maybury’s “Love is the Devil.”

Now in its third year and becoming firmly established as a well-attended event in a period when national admissions are settling into the customary summertime lull, the season closes this year with a special screening of Lindsay Anderson’s “if…,” which won the Palme d’Or in 1969.
