Italian Film Festival USA, St. Louis

The Italian Film Festival USA is organized by the Italian Film Festival of St. Louis, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Every year, the Italian Film Festival USA screens Italian feature films, documentaries, and short films in several American metropolitan areas. The 2023 edition of our in-person festival brought Italian cinema to thousands of spectators in 15 cities: Metro Detroit, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Memphis, Kansas City, St. Louis, Boulder, Cleveland, Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Boston, Salt Lake City, and Portland. We plan to return to these cities in the Spring of 2024.

The short film

“Sky(pe)” by Riccardo Menicatti & Bruno Ugioli is a story of a father that manages to video-call his son from heaven.

The idea for Sky(pe) was born during the first lockdown due to the Covid19 pandemic. In a time when personal relationships were impossible, every social activity has been reinvented through the screens of smartphones and computers, getting us used to a new way of seeing each others. Work video calls, DaD for students and teachers, TV guests from their apartment… every relationship had been transformed to webcam-deformed faces in a home-made pixel frame.
