2019 Golden Horse Classic Film Festival: Voyage to Italy
 
Last year, in celebration of the centennial of Swedish maestro in cinematic arts, we have brought about a heavyweight Ingmar Bergman: The Centennial Retrospective, including 38 cinematic works of his, as a tribute to the late filmmaker, in addition to our regular Golden Horse Film Festival (November) and Golden Horse Fantastic Film Festival (April). The enthusiastic resonance and feedback from the cinephiles are far beyond our expectation, which in turn triggers the Golden Horse Classic Film Festival this summer.
 
The Golden Horse Classic Film Festival is inspired by the documentary My Voyage to Italy (1999) by Martin Scorsese. The admiration for this unforgettable documentary as well as the cinematic arts it introduces has led us to organize this new film festival, from a glimpse to the overview. From La nave bianca (The White Ship,1941) in Fascist period, to the pioneer of Italian neorealism Ossessione (Obsession 1943), and Roma città aperta (Rome, Open City ,1945) that swept the world, as well as Shoeshine (1946), Paisan (1946), Germania anno zero (Germany Year Zero ,1948), La terra trema (1948),  Ladri di biciclette (Bicycle Thieves ,1948) and Umberto D. (1952), which considered by some as the period of the movement. Roberto Rossellini, Luchino Visconti and Vittorio De Sica, not only regained the dignity lost in WWII for Italy, but also established a milestone for cinematic aesthetics. These auteurs differentiate from each other and evolve over the timelines of their creation, not to mention Federico Fellini and Michelangelo Antonioni, who were influenced by neorealism yet develop distinctive aesthetics. Thus, the closure of a movement didn’t frustrate Italian cinema, but fertilizes the varied splendors.
 
We do not simply follow Scorsese’s dissertation to organize the festival, but rather dig into those omitted or failed to be found for whatever reason at the time, which quickly completes the lineup. (However, Fellini’s works are put aside until next year, for his centennial.)
 
We always stay hungry for good movies, and this Classic Film Festival : Voyage to Italy is merely the beginning of an endless journey. We are pleased to invite audiences to revisit these celebrated filmmakers and their works through the eyes of a great director, an expedition not only impressive but unforgettable.
