First news of the programme

We’re delighted to be able to share the first details of the emerging programme for Il Cinema Sostituto.

As is traditional, we’ll be travelling through space and time, with a particular focus on movies from India and France and a scope stretching from the 1920s to the 2000s.

Aside from the specialist themes, our Rediscovered & Tracked-down strand will be pulling in gems from the USA, UK and elsewhere – both the obscure and the familiar.

There will be documentaries too, and of course a retrospective for a great American journeyman. Can you work out who?

There may even be space for a strand devoted to Trevor Eve’s memorable ‘Private Ear’, Eddie Shoestring. We’ll see.

Keep an eye on the Programme section of the site – we’ll be putting all the details there.
