The evening commenced with a wine tasting, featuring a selection of Italian labels, sponsored by The Charming Taste of Europe.

The festival opened on Nov. 16 with the romantic comedy, Ramona, directed by Andrea Bagney (Spain)—shot in black and white as a nod to the French New Wave of the 1960s. The Swedish film, Comedy Queen, directed by Sanna Lenken, closes the in-person festival on Nov. 30.
