GUCCI MUSEO AND THE FILM FOUNDATION, in collaboration with FONDAZIONE SISTEMA TOSCANA, present: CINEMA VISIONARIES

Odeon Cinema, Florence

To celebrate Gucci’s longstanding collaboration with The Film Foundation, Gucci Museo is pleased to present Cinema Visionaries in Florence.
Since 2006, Gucci has been committed to adding at least one film every year to a growing collection of titles newly restored through the work of The Film Foundation. There is no more powerful way to make clear the preservation message than to provide audiences with the opportunity to experience restored cinematic treasures first hand. To that end, Gucci and The Film Foundation have developed Cinema Visionaries, a traveling screening series of the restored titles. Cinema Visionaries honors the work of innovative filmmakers who have made a significant contribution to the history of motion pictures, by creating public access to their films.
