For the second year in a row, Torontonians can head on over to the Ontario Place Drive-In this summer for the Lavazza Drive-In International Film Festival. The 20-day event will be showcasing a ton of great films celebrating Canadian multiculturalism, with a special focus on Italian cinema.
The Lavazza Drive-In International Film Festival is presented in collaborations with Rogers Communications and Christie Digital, and funded by the Government of Ontario. Although the festival does have a special “Focus Italian” series, it will also feature amazing selections of representing Canada’s cultural mosaic; including Americans, British, Korean, Latinx, African, Chinese, French, Jewish, Japanese, Turkish, Indian, Iranian, Indigenous Peoples, and Russian communities.

Given that the festival is a celebration of Canadian multiculturalism, it’s only fitting that it should launch on Canada Multiculturalism Day.
