Christie Digital Cinema is providing projection technology for the Lavazza IncluCity Festival, organized by the ICFF. This year’s festivities will transform the iconic cobblestone streets of Toronto’s Distillery Historic District into an outdoor cinema village, celebrating multiculturalism and the best of international cinema from June 27 to July 15. After two successful years as the Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival, the festival welcomes moviegoers to the new cinema village.
“As a festival, we are proud to continue innovating and creating new experiences for our audience. This incredible initiative is the result of the work and passion with our partner Christie," says Cristiano de Florentiis, ICFF co-founder and artistic director. “We are ecstatic to bring people back together to enjoy friendship and films. With Christie and ICFF, audiences will indulge in a digital cinematic experience like no other.”
ICFF will showcase films from more than 20 countries, including 40 feature films and 23 short films. There will also be over 10 North American film premieres from Italian stars, including special guests Alessandro Gassmann, Claudia Gerini, Lino Banfi, and Fabio De Luigi. The festival continues to celebrate arts and culture with gourmet tastings, live performances and visual art exhibits, including the free 6IX Art Outdoors, an exhibit of one-of-a-kind, multicultural art.
“We are proud to continue our sponsorship of ICFF,” says Arlonna Seymour, executive director, corporate marketing, Christie. “ICFF’s exciting new location in the Distillery District is a wonderful combination of community and cinema, and one we’re pleased to support with our industry-leading cinema projectors.”
