    Dear Members & Friends of the Italian Cultural Center,


    We are thrilled to announce the 11th anniversary of the Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis-St. Paul (IFF). Organized by the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis / St. Paul in partnership with MSP Film Society, this year's festival opens at St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis on February 20, 2020. Over four days, the IFF will screen the best current Italian cinema from fast-paced Italian comedies to socially-relevant documentaries. Alongside contemporary Italian premieres, the festival showcases Italy's cinematic history by screening a classic Italian film each year. 2020 marks the centennial of Federico Fellini and we are delighted to present a 4K restoration of Lo sceicco bianco (The White Sheik, 1952).


    This time again, the IFF will offer two award opportunities for the best short films made by emerging filmmakers working and living in Italy and Minnesota. The winning films and finalists will screen at the festival. Each winner will receive a 2020 "Building Bridges Award" together with a cash prize and the IFF will cover the director's travel to the festival. This year's theme is WATER (acqua in Italian).
    The "Building Bridges: Emerging Filmmaker Awards” are dedicated to Massimo Bonavita, former president and co-founder of The Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis / St. Paul. Sponsored by KNOCK, Inc. and our generous Give to The Max Donors.


    We are committed to our local community and the festival offers an opportunity to give back by creating dialogue between Minnesota and Italy through visual arts. In order to continue doing this important work, we rely on the support of our community partners and sponsors. Your support makes the festival possible, as sponsorships help us cover the event’s many costs including screening fees, filmmaker travel, and community outreach.

    Below, we’ve detailed some of the ways that you can become a sponsor for this year’s IFF, but we also look forward to working with you on your organizations particular interests and goals. Please be in touch with any questions.

    Thank you for your time. We look forward to discussing more soon!

    EDUCATIONAL TRAVEL: LUCCA DUE --- 2020!

    NOTE:  The Lucca 2020 trip has SOLD OUT


    Those of us at the ICC are pleased to announce our 7th educational travel adventure.  For the second time, we will travel to to the region of Tuscany...to Lucca, where we will collaborate with the wonderful Lucca Italian School!

    Lucca, a living testimony to past times, kingdoms and dominions, lies in a green valley just north west of Florence. This almost perfectly preserved jewel of medieval architecture and buildings, emanates charm and shows layers of history from every corner of its narrow winding streets. Beginning in Roman times, continuing through the Middle Ages, on to the Napoleonic era and finally to the RisorgimentoLucca's monuments, churches, palaces and roads, even its very shape have a story to tell. Each layer blends with preceding ages marking the growth and changes of the city. The broad, high walls, which characterize the city, are a feature of its past, and a pleasant element of its present.

    The 2020 program will begin on Saturday, October 3, until Saturday, October 17, and will include study at the Lucca Italian School, as well as an exciting program of exploration in the city and the surrounding area. Don't miss out on our latest educational adventure!  Study Italian, and explore the region of Tuscany, for 14 days in October of 2020!

    For more information on this, as well as past trips, go to our Educational Travel pages. The group is limited to 12-14 participants and a non-refundable deposit of $250 per person is required.  You may remit your deposit here.

    Please contact Peggy at info@theitalianculturalcenter.org for more information.

    NOTE: All participants must hold an active ICC membership.
