Il Cinema Ritrovato

Il Cinema Ritrovato (meaning "cinema rediscovered") is a festival dedicated to the history of cinema, screening classics, retrospectives and showcasing the latest restored films from labs and archives around the world. The majority of the films shown are from early cinema to the 1960s. It is organised every summer by the Cineteca di Bologna, Italy, and is the world's major festival of film restoration. It was founded in 1986 as a three-day event but over time it became bigger, screening 500 films over nine days in 2018.[1][2][3][4]
