Once again, from December 4th to 6th, the historical Labia cinema will host the 23rd edition of the Italian Film Focus, a film festival dedicated to the best new movies released in Italian theaters.
The eight films featured in this edition come from the most important and recent international film festivals and will be introduced by prestigious guests.
