N.I.C.E. Festival USA 202131st EditionNew York / NOV 12-20Special events:New Jersey, Princeton University / OCT 13-28Philadelphia, Penn University / DIC 6-12Streaming on eventive.org

This YEAR N.I.C.E. gets to the usual rendez-vous of November into an innovative and renewed formula, which intends to build on the trials launched during the pandemic. This year’s selection remains faithful to its mission: knowledge and valorization of new Italian cinema, which has always been able to record novelties, trials, and to promote quality cinema. It is a festival made of people, reflections, exchanges, closer looks at cinema and, above all, made of meetings. N.I.C.E. lists different works by inspiration, issues, idioms and techniques: from docufiction to reportage, works of great artistic value and emotional impact. Aiming to present different aspects of the contemporary Italian spirit, it was decided to dedicate a section also to Cinema and Music with music-themed feature films, since Italian music and cinema have historically followed a parallel path. In line with the same spirit of innovation of the festival, we also present to you an experimental trilogy based upon the performance philosophy.
