On 20 July, Manifesta 12 has reopened after 12 years the Arena La Sirenetta, an iconic, open-air cinema in Mondello.
With a projection of an historical film by Mario Baffico and an exclusive performance by MASBEDO, Manifesta 12 has started over the summer session of the Manifesta 12 Film Programme, composed by film screenings and public talk with the protagonists of the film industry. The Manifesta 12 Film Programme takes place in three different venues: at Arena La Sirenetta, at the garden designed by Coloco and Gille Clément in via Primo Carnera Zen 2, and at Teatro Garibaldi di Palermo.

Over 30 films have been projected last summer in Mondello, and since the programme was so successful, Manifesta 12 has decided to offer to its public another weekend of free screenings at Arena La Sirenetta. In order to properly celebrate the end of the summer and to mark the start to the new session of screenings at Teatro Garibaldi di Palermo, on Saturday 15 September a party with a live DJ set by Stefania Pia will follow the screening.
