In partnership with the Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF), Rogers is offering its TV customers the opportunity to live “La Dolce Vita” with exclusive access to the first ever ICFF at Home, an expertly curated collection of Italian films to celebrate the beauty of Italian films and culture, without having to leave their home.

Rogers Ignite TV and Digital TV customers will have access to 13 ICFF films that will take them on a journey of Italian cinema. Go behind the lens and discover the world of the renowned director Federico Fellini, and how his distinctive style made him one of the most influential filmmakers of all time.
