Floating Theatre: the floating cinema festival in Villa Ada
The Timvision Floating Theatre Summer Fest is coming back to Rome in 2022, an actual open-air cinema that floats on Villa Ada’s laghetto!
Summer 2022 will see the return of the Floating Theatre, which this year will be set up on the Villa Ada lake. Floating Theatre is conceived by Alice in the City and produced by AC Playtown Roma in collaboration with Fondazione Cinema per Roma and directed by Fabia Bettini and Gianluca Giannelli. The event will take place from August 24 to September 25, with a schedule of previews and special screenings at the new lakeside location of Villa Ada, every day from 8:30 p.m.
The program starts on August 24 with the Italian premiere of the film Bullet Train, directed by David Leitch, starring Brad Pitt. It continues with two special screenings: The Humans, on August 26th, directed by Stephen Karam, and then, on August 31, the screening of Memoria, Apitchatpong Weerasethakul‘s film starring Tilda Swinton, followed by a silent disco party on the platform: this is a musical event in which all participants dance while listening to music individually, through the use of earphones or headphones.
Film in Festa, featuring the most significant titles from past editions of the Rome Film Festival, wil run over the weekends. It starts on August 27 with The Eyes of Tammy Faye by Michael Showalter, starring Jessica Chastain. On August 28, former soccer player Beppe Signori will present the documentary Fuorigioco – Una storia di vita e di sport, which tells his sporting and human story.
Aspettando Alice is the review dedicated to the youngest: on August 29 there will be the premiere of the animated film DC League of Super-Pets, directed by Jared Stern and Sam Levine. Guest stars Lillo and Maccio Capatonda, italian voices of the two main characters of the movie, Krypto the Superdog and Asso. The film, distributed by Warner Bros., will be released in Italian theaters on September 1.
On August 30, it will be the turn of the screening of Ivan Cotroneo‘s film Fourteen Days, which will be hosted along with its leads Carlotta Natoli and Thomas Trabacchi.
