What are people saying about CineFesta Italia?

Great Event, Food, Drink, Company -- all that combined with wonderful Italian Cine.  The Alpha Romeo was especially impressive!                                                                                       - Max Myers, Market President, 

New Mexico Bank & Trust

We'll be there for the entire CineFesta Italia this year just like we were last year.  We always enjoy catching up with the lovers of Italian film, food, and culture.                                 - Ciao, Gerry and Ann Serafino, Roswell, NM

to welcome Special Guest

to Documentary Program 

The first film in the Program, Oltre il Confine (Beyond the Border) is the story of Ettore Castiglioni, who was a partisan (Resistance) in Italy during WWII. On Friday, prior to the screening of the film, we are honored to present Urio Bertelli, Santa Fe’s own 97-year-old partigiano, who will speak a few words about his experiences before he watches the film with the audience.
