The Rome Film Festival on Thursday screened a Pixar-animated film about a Jasmine’s dream, “Soul,” which, despite the lingering corona virus, has changed the way people watch movies in general.

Like the world-famous cinema festival in Venice last month, heat scanners measure the temperature of audience members at theater doors, wearing a mask is mandatory and fewer spectators are allowed.

“Everyone’s safety comes first,” festival director Antonio Monta told Il Messaggero daily.

Attending the opening night ceremony, Italian Minister of Culture Tario Francescini and Italian actors voiced the “Soul” characters, which received early reviews and will be released live on Disney + stages, excluding theaters.

The film premiered at the London Film Festival last week.

One of the most eagerly awaited films in Rome is the documentary “Mi Siamo Francesco Totti” (“My name is Francesco Totti”) about the famous footballer who spent his entire life in AS Roma.

However, it is uncertain whether Roma’s former No. 10, who lost his father, will return.

The 15th edition of the festival ends on October 25th. I.P.
