Waiting for BFM 37

Two meetings about cinema with Dario Catozzo... waiting for the 37th edition of Bergamo Film Meeting: Monday, the 18th of February and Monday the 25th of February from 9PM to 11PM
18 February25 February

In 1951 in Paris, together with other associates, legendary film critic André Bazin founded the Cahiers du Cinema magazine. From the onset, the magazine attracted film critics and enthusiasts who would later become important filmmakers during the 60s: François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette, Eric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol, to name a few. They all expressed a militant criticism which did not shy away from controversy against major filmmakers in vogue in France and elsewhere. The film movement that followed would be called Nouvelle vague (New Wave) and Jean-Pierre Léaud, to whom Bergamo Film Meeting is dedicating a retrospective this year, would become one of its most iconic actors.

The panels we propose aim to bring to the viewers’ attention some significant moments of this journey, with some slight digressions along the way.


Admission fee for each panel: €5. It will be possible to make the payment on the same evening of the event at Elav Circus.
Admission is free for supporters of the Support BFM 2019 campaign.

For registration, write to: [email protected] or call (+39) 035 363087.

The event is in collaboration with Elav Circus and Lab 80 film.
