Metro Detroit's 2017 edition of the Italian Film Festival USA will have free screenings of contemporary Italian cinema at Wayne State in General Lectures on April 28 and 29. Now in its 13th year nationwide, the Italian Film Festival USA is offering 95 screenings of recent Italian films this year. In addition to Detroit, the festival expands to other American cities. Last year’s event in Metro Detroit drew more than 3,500 people and was the most highly attended of all participating cities.
