An era-defining fresco of life among the glitterati in early 1960s Rome.

An exquisite tale of celebrity, La Dolce Vita casts an adoring yet critical eye towards 60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, we follow Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist as he pursues a happiness that’s always just out of reach.

Casting a typically critical eye over the world of celebrity, Fellini’s epic La Dolce Vita stands as a towering achievement of 1960s cinema.

One of the most iconic Italian films – an epic, breathtakingly stylish cinematic landmark.

Martin Scorsese called it, “the film that conquered the world”.

  • Winner Palme d’Or Cannes Film Festival 1960.
  • Winner Oscar for Best Costume Design, Academy Awards 1960.

We are excited to be able to open our first ever Bangalow Film Festival with such a masterpiece of cinema.

Dress Up!

In keeping with the 60s theme, the screening will be an outdoor drive-in event, and anyone with a gorgeous vintage vehicle is especially encouraged to attend. Dress code will be Fellini’s 60s, which allows for a multitude of possibilities from gorgeous gowns and black tie to circus characters, vagabonds and paparazzi.

This will undoubtedly be a night to remember.
