In June this year I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Spaghetti Cinema conference/film festival in Luton. Organised by Dr Austin Fisher at the University of Bedfordshire, the event brought together scholars and connoisseurs of popular Italian cinema under one roof to discuss the Italian Western.
In anticipation of next year's event, which will be focusing on the Italian horror film, read my review of June's in the latest issue of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies.
