Emanuela, Lara, Roberta | Cineforum


Since 1961, Cineforum Rivista has been published by FIC - Federazione Italiana Cineforum and is one of the longest-lived and most authoritative magazines of film criticism and culture, of international prestige. On the pages of Cineforum have written - and still write - excellent names of Italian criticism. From December 2020, with the launch of the New Series, Cineforum Rivista has inaugurated a new quarterly editorial project, under the direction of Emanuela Martini: a project that looks at the contemporary world and at the history of cinema, taking its cue from the present to suggest reflections, insights and ideas on cinema “everything”.

Each issue consists of 130 pages (with 1 sixteenth in colour) and includes: monographic studies on forthcoming films and on the most current themes of the cinematographic, cultural and political debate; analysis of authors, cinematography, genres and emerging trends; thematic itineraries in the history of cinema; festival reports. Each issue of Cineforum Rivista becomes a book for many voices, with a high level of writing and analysis. Each issue of Cineforum Rivista is a piece of cinematic heart and memory, because we believe that cinema is more alive than ever and that it is worth continuing to share ideas with all fans.
