by: Henni Koski and Monika Pundzaite
This year, 10th – 14th of March, the annual Italian film festival Cinema Made in Italy will take place in London for the sixth time. It is organised by Istituto Luce Cinecittà, in collaboration with Ciné Lumière and with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in London.
This year’s edition showcases nine titles selected by film experts Giorgio Gosetti and Adrian Wootton, reflecting the best of Italian production: Anna by Giuseppe Gaudino which won Valeria Golino a Coppa Volpi for Best Actress at Venice Film Festival, Wondrous Boccaccio by Masters Taviani Brothers, freely inspired by The Decameron.
Other highlights include The First Light by Vincenzo Marra starring Riccardo Scamarcio, Claudio Cupellini’s romance The Beginners with 2010 Cannes Best Actor Elio Germano and this year’s Italian entry for Oscars, Don’t Be Bad by Claudio Caligari.
Let’s not forget the amazing 2015 comedy God Willing with whom director Edoardo Falcone has won Best New Director at the recent Italian Oscars, superhero movie directed by Gabriele Mainetti called They Call Me Jeeg Robot starring Luca Marinelli, fiction genre movie Long Live the Bride directed by well known Ascanio Celestini and last but definitely not least movie Chlorine by NYU-schooled Italian director Lamberto Sanfelice’s which debuted in Sundance Film Festival in 2015.
We are so excited to be given the opportunity to cover this event, and we are thrilled to announce we will be meeting the amazing Michele Riondino of Young Montalbano fame, and these talented people: Valeria Golino, Edoardo Falcone, Luca Marinelli and Gabriele Mainetti during Cinema Made in Italy.
Cinema Made In Italy will be running from 10 – 14 March 2016 at the Cine Lumiere.
