Thanks to the contribution of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism – General Administration of Cinema, with the support of the Italian Consulate of New York, the Italian Institute of Cul-ture, in collaboration with RAI Cinema, Mercer Hotel, the Italian Culture Committee of New York, Stony Brook University and the patronage of APA (Associazione Produttori Audiovisivo) we welcome the fourth edition of ITALY ON SCREEN TODAY – New York & Miami, the film festival created and directed by Loredana Commonara for the Artistic Soul Association.
The festival will run from Nov 21st to Nov 24th at the Walter Reade Theater (Lincoln Center) and at the Wang Center of Long Island, with a curated selection of movies showcasing the best of contemporary Italian cinema: over the course of four days we offer great authors, young directors, US and New York premieres and in-depth movie analysis.
Over the course of the few last years, Italian cinema has become more and more eclectic, able to surprise and renew itself, both in regards of themes and language, while the productions keep making room for new authors, which is a constant stimulus for the spectators and the industry alike. This is why the effort we put into promoting Italian cinema abroad turns into true pleasure.
The most awaited appointment of this edition will take place at the Walter Reade Theater (Lincoln Center), where we proudly host the maestro Marco Bellocchio and his renown actor Pierfrancesco Favino. Thanks to the collaboration of Sony Pictures Classics, which holds the distribution rights in the US, we will screen Il Traditore (The Traitor), the movie which will represent Italy at the 92nd Academy Awards for the “International Feature Film” category. The movie is collecting awards and general consensus all over the world and this will be our occasion for conferring them our very own Wind of Europe International Award, the recognition we assign to the artist that represent European culture in the world.
Furthermore, thanks to the warm appreciation we received, we can confirm that last year’s novelty has turned into a recurring event: Dec 12th to Dec 14th we will be back in Miami, at Fort Lauderlale’s Lauder art. There we will honor Lina Wertmüller, an icon of Italian cinema, first woman ever nominated for best director at the Academy Awards for the movie Pasqualino Settebellezze. Morover, Ms. Wertmüller was recently conferred the Academy Award for her outstanding career. We dedicated the image of our communications to her. We will screen Travolti da un insolito destino nell’azzurro mare d’agosto (Swept away by an unusual destiny in the blue sea of august) and Mimì metallurgico ferito nell’onore (The seduction of Mimì), two masterpieces of the moving pic-tures. We will be analyzing in depth the figure of the woman in Italian cinema with a retrospective dedicated to Italian female directors, of the past and the present: a step we deem necessary to properly recount the evolution of Italian cinema, both as a form of art as well as an economic and productive reality.
It is with outmost pleasure that we welcome you to our fourth edition of Italy On Screen Today and expect you for our fifth!
