Anita Ekberg to present Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" in Bratislava

Swedish actress Anita Ekberg will present Federico Fellini's masterpiece "La Dolce Vita" (Sweet Life) at the 5th International Film Festival (IFF) in Bratislava, daily SME wrote.

The festival will take place from November 28 to December 6, and the presentation of the classic Italian movie will mark the 10th anniversary of Fellini's death.

The actress told the organizers that she had visited the country several years ago and she was looking forward to returning again.

A French-Italian coproduction that won the Cannes Golden Palm in 1960, the film starred Marcello Mastroianni, Anouk Aimee, Lex Barker, and Ekberg as the beautiful actress Sylvia.

The IFF will be showing 225 feature and short films, as well as video clips. Screenings will take place at the UCI Palace Cinemas of the Aupark shopping centre and the Orange IMAX cinema of the Avion centre.
