Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

With fourteen first or second works in its Main Competition, and playing host to a further twelve documentaries, eleven independent European productions and four special events, the 66th Taormina FilmFest, directed by Leo Gullotta and Francesco Calogero, has sprung back to life with an Official Selection comprising over 40 premieres, which are screening in cinemas - as well as streaming online for the very first time - between 11 – 19 July. Every day, at 7pm and then again at 9.30pm, Taormina’s Palazzo dei Congressi is organising daily double screenings of films within the International Competition, a section dedicated to debut works, while the online MYmovies.it schedule is offering an even greater wealth of material, available for 24 hours, in the form of follow-up info, video documents, archive images and guest contributions, uploaded on a day to day basis.
