A 2024 Oscar nominee, a virtuoso's masterpiece, an acclaimed female director's whimsical drama, a quirky comedy for Gen Zers and a gritty crime drama are all part of the 15th edition of the Italian Film Festival. Presented by the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/St. Paul and MSP Film Society, the four-day fest opens Thursday at the Main Cinema.

The festival that debuted in 2009 with five films now has grown to 12, and for the first time kicks off and ends with features by female directors.
