CultFilms is a new UK DVD label specialising in World Cinema, creating from the merger of two established labels in the field – Nouveaux Pictures and Argent Films.

The aim of the label is produce high quality releases of international  classics, and they are kicking off in style with two Sophia Loren films РTwo Women, directed by Vittorio De Sica, and A Special Day by Ettore Scola, both of which are presented from restored negatives. A Special Day also shows at the ICA on October 23rd.

There are more Loren classics to come – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Marriage, Italian Style and Boccaccio 70 – alongside some of the greats of international film, including The Battle of Algiers (restored in 4K) and what is promised to be a complete Fellini collection, starting with La Dolce Vita and 81/2.

This collection looks to be pretty essential, and with impressive extras – including the documentary Sophia: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – we can’t wait to dig into them.
