In it's 16th consecutive year, the Italian Film festival has developed into the most successful cultural film festival on the national entertainment calendar and continues as the 2nd largest film festival in the country. It is also the largest, and only national, Italian event, both business and cultural, in New Zealand.

This year, the festival boasts 19 films from 2009 until 2011, including, fresh from Cannes, 'Habemus Papam', Nanni Moretti's outstanding thought-provoking drama set in the Vatican about the human consequences of becoming the conclave elected Pope.

Other highlights include 'Our Life' (La nostra vita), about an ambitious working-class man who is full of life but not entirely honest; 'The Man Who will Come' (L'uomo che verrà) a powerful and engrossing drama based on the World War II tragedy known as the Marzabotto Massacre; 'Sorry I Want to Marry You' (Scusa ma ti voglio sposare) a festival highlight for all romantics and 'Me, Them and Lara' (Io, loro e Lara) starring Carlo Verdone as a missionary who returns from Africa to an hilariously dysfunctional family.

Tickets are on sale from the Hollywood.
