CINEMAITALIAUK was founded in 2014 by Clara Caleo Green with the aim of giving contemporary and classic Italian films a permanent home in the UK.

Our Mission is to raise awareness of Italian culture by promoting Italian films that go beyond the traditional genres, and to ultimately stimulate and encourage cultural integration.

Five years on, we have proudly hosted many iconic figures, including Actress and Director Laura Morante, Oscar winning Producer Francesca Cima, Directors Daniele Luchetti, Pif, Gianfranco Cabiddu, and the amazing Comedians Paola Cortellesi and Checco Zalone - to name but a few!

Great events to learn from, very interesting people to meet and scrumptious food to eat - what more can you ask for?
