The L’Isola del Cinema film festival features new and classic films, workshops, guest appearances, and also a favorite of many festival film goers, the cult classics such as Italian comedies and westerns. Most of the films are dubbed in Italian, but you should have no problem understanding the content or message of the director.

The open air cinema under the stars of the Roman nights is near Ponte Rotto named for its slanting position. The bridge was prone to water damage, and half of it was destroyed by a violent flood in the late 16th century. This is why it is called Ponte Rotto (broken bridge). Today Ponte Rotto can best be seen from the Palatino Bridge, a magnificent sight when the starts light up the evening sky.

There is lots of music and dancing, various fashion shows, and wonderful food and wine tastings, as well. The event gives visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the Italian culture and the country's past, highlighting and screening films from the 1950s with actors such as Marcello Mastroianni and films by Federico Fellini. There will be many events to help celebrate the film, such as meetings with authors, various exhibitions and "Born on the Tiber Island", an event dedicated to those born on the Roman island.
