The Turin Film Festival (TFF) is set to mark its 40th anniversary this year with a night of films featuring the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.
The opening night on the music legends at the Teatro Regio on November 25 will see special guest, the singer-songwriter Francesco De Gregori riff with TFF director and longtime Rai state broadcaster host Steve Della Casa. “Cinema, said Bernardo Bertolucci, is the art of arts, it is the art that uses the other arts,” said Della Casa in presenting the latest ‘Hollywood Party’ event on Wednesday. “Rock and pop are an essential component of 20th century culture, and we want to show that the relationship of these artists with cinema is curious, surprising and multi-faceted. “With an exceptional guest and commentator like De Gregori for a festival that wants to be curious, popular and chic”. The opening night will be broadcast live for the first time, on Rai radio 3.
