BFI has announced a major year-long celebration to mark the centenary of one of cinema’s most exuberantly playful filmmakers, Federico Fellini (1920–1993), in partnership with Luce – Cinecittà. The celebration begins in January 2020 at BFI Southbank with a two-month retrospective of Fellini’s work.
Fellini’s career stretches from post-war neorealism to the MTV era and his work has influenced several generations of directors including David Lynch, Pedro Almodóvar, Sofia Coppola and Martin Scorsese, who described La Dolce Vita (1960) as ‘the film that conquered the world’.
BFI will also re-release La Dolce Vita on 3rd January in selected cinemas as well as showing a number of Fellini’s most influential films on a nationwide cinema tour, and a collection on the BFI Player.
