Celebrating Felini's 100th Anniversary - An eight film season in Sydney at the Randwick Ritz and in Melbourne at the Elsternwick Classic

Fellini Centenary Retrospective at Classic and Ritz Cinemas

Classic and Ritz Cinemas are celebrating what would have been the larger-than-life Italian maestro filmmaker Federico Fellini's 100th birthday this year with a retrospective of eight of his most incredible films. 
The Fellini Centenary Retrospective takes place every Monday night at 7pm at Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick, Melbourne, and Ritz Cinemas in Randwick, Sydney, from Monday 6 July to Monday 24 August.

Fellini won the Palme d'Or for La Dolce Vita, was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, and won four in the category of Best Foreign Language Film, the most for any director in the history of the Academy. He received an honorary award for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th Academy Awards in 1993. His filmmaking style is extravagant and fanciful, and his films are filled with a rich combination of dreams, memories, fantasies and real life.
The retrospective is presented in association with the Italian Cultural Institute in Melbourne and the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney. For the retrospective at Ritz, the Sydney institute has enlisted the help of film academic Christian Pazzaglia to introduce the film and conduct a Q&A afterwards at six of the eight sessions (every film except Roma and Amarcord).
