Cape Town’s Italian Film Festival

On the 19th May some of EC Cape Town’s teachers and students accompanied by the Dos and Ados, were amongst the invited guests at Cape Town’s Italian Film Festival, a 3 day, culturally stimulating affair, organized by the local Italian community – Regione Piemonte. Some of Italy’s most popular and award-winning films with English subtitles, one being the original version of the “Italian Job”, were screened at Cape Town’s prestigious and historical Labia Theatre on Orange. Guests were treated to a Mediterranean style buffet finger-supper and 100% organic South African wine after the screening which was accompanied by genuine interaction  with the locals – in English!! Many college and university students attended too, so EC students really got a 100% FULL Immersion. A great time was had by all. EC Cape Town – Nicoletta Di Gia
