Every year in summer, the village of Bobbio hosts the Bobbio Film Festival, as part of the Fare Cinema project. The 2023 edition is scheduled from 28th July to 6th August in the cloister of San Colombano Abbey.
The event, born in the 1990s from an idea of the director Marco Bellocchio, a native of the Emilian village, involves the screening each evening of a film released in theatres during the previous season. At the end, a debate is conducted in the presence of actors, directors, critics and film producers.
Courses related to criticism, screenwriting and directing are held during the day. For the year 2023, Marco Bellocchio is scheduled to return to teach at the festival.
