The ST. ALi Italian Film Festival
returns to Perth on October 20 to November 14 with films screening at Palace Raine Square, Luna Leederville, Luna on SX and Windsor Cinema.

Now in its 22nd year, the festival continues to present the best new Italian films as well as classic gems with the 2021 edition featuring a sensational line-up of much-loved stars and exciting emerging talent.

With a focus on contemporary cinema that tells the stories from today’s Italy, plus a selection of classics honouring the country’s filmmaking tradition, the ST ALi Italian Film Festival celebrates the best of Italian cinema and filmmakers.

The Festival opens with the Australian premiere of The Ties (Lacci) which opened last year’s Venice Film Festival. Daniele Luchetti’s sumptuous marriage-in-crisis drama spans a 40-year period in Naples and Rome, and boasts an all-star cast including Alba Rohrwacher, Luigi Lo Cascio, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Laura Morante and Silvio Orlando.
