As always, we were delighted to be a part of the latest edition of II Cinema Ritrovato Festival as Bologna turned into cinephile heaven from 20 July.
Park Circus was thrilled to continue its collaboration with the Festival to celebrate all things classic film and represented a variety of titles across the Recovered & Restored, Herman Mankiewicz: A Scattered Talent, and Something to Live For: The Cinema of George Stevens strands.
