Cineforum n.0


Cineforum is the cinema magazine of the Italian Cineforum Federation. A magazine that comes from far away and that represents the purest and most traditional form of film criticism magazine. In fact, it contains presentations, reviews, controversies and discussions on dozens of more or less recent films, analysis of film trends and authorial trends in this sector.
It is a magazine for real cinephiles, founded in 1961. Until 2020 it comes out monthly, up to the radical number 0 of 2021, the year from which it becomes a quarterly that changes its graphic and editorial aspect and decides to leave more mainstream circuits to become a niche paper reference for true enthusiasts. 

The Italian Cineforum Federation represents most of the Italian film clubs, and in particular collaborates with medium-small and local realities in order to make known the masterpieces of great authors, but also to give visibility and release film projects that otherwise would have little visibility. . From the vision of the films it then organizes cineforums, conferences and debates that create and bring to life the culture of cinema in Italy. 

The Director of the new series of Cineforum magazine is Emanuela Martini, born in Forlì and film critic, until 2019 Director of the Torino Film Festival.
