What a way to end the Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF) 2013! Held at one of our favourite venues, Andrew Richard Designs, the Italian Contemporary Film Festival Closing Party wrapped up their 2nd year in an Italian “Dolce Vita” style.

The party brought together some of Toronto’s most authentic Italian restaurants to treat guests of the Italian Contemporary Film Festival to some classic festa favourites such as paste (pastas), Italian sausages, gelati, and a juicy roast suckling pig.

A Campari station was also there to serve the most popular cocktail among young people in Northern Italy, Aperol Spritz.

Up in the loft, guests indulged themselves with tables of cupcakes, biscotti, cannoli, and cheese. The raspberry cupcake and lemon-pistachio biscotti were devilishly good.

Prior to the party, attendees of the Italian Contemporary Film Festival enjoyed a screening of the closing film “Cosa Voglio di Più (what more do I want?)/ Come undone” – a drama directed by multi-award-winner Silvio Soldini, about an unappreciative ‘b’ (no judgment) and a married man struggling between lust and morality.
