Originated from the love for the art of filmmaking, this section is constructed on “the passion for cinema,” “cinephilia,” and “Cinemania.” A portmanteau section, “Cinemania” comprises the highlights, the landmarks and milestones, the unforgettables of the world of cinema: masterpieces of a career, in memoriam or in celebration; restored classics, lost films, cult movies, films on films, and surprises…
