Moviemov Italian Film Festival Goes Online


Mynila Team April 14, 2020 Music & Culture

Moviemov Italian Film Festival, after the great success of past the editions in Bangkok, Manila and Hanoi, returns to the Philippines for this new edition with a real virtual cinema.

Some of the directors and interpreters of the selected films, including Laura Luchetti, Fulvio Risuleo, Gianni Di Gregorio, Paolo Calabresi, together with this year’s godmother Elena Radonicich, will take part at the event with live social and video contributions in the virtual theatre to present their films.

The showcase will be composed of 7 films, chosen together with FDCP Film Development Council of Philippines, PIA Philippine Italian association and the students of the Universities that will be accompanied and introduced virtually by actors, directors and film critics.

The winning film will then be promoted in the Philippines during the the next year in the independent circuits. All screenings will be free access and in original language with English subtitles. The audience will live the experience of a real cinema, even if virtual, shared with the protagonists of the films on view, also thanks to a chat available on the platform, where students and the public will be able to comment and find insights on the movies. Ad hoc moments for the industry will also be created and the festival will end with a tribute to Fellini’s cinema on the occasion of its centenary.

After winning three editions of Moviemov in the past, Ferzan Ozpetek is back in the selection with La Dea Fortuna, a comedy that garnered 4 nominations for David di Donatello. Lontano Lontano, a gentle comedy full of humanity directed by Gianni Di Gregorio and enriched by the latest interpretation of Ennio Fantastichini; Genitori quasi perfetti, a tragicomedy with a strong theatrical structure on hypocrisy and the fragility of human relationships; Fiore Gemello, a tale of formation of two teenagers in search of lost innocence; Il colpo del cane, an indie comedy that dares and tells the
malaise of a precarious generation; Il Testimone invisibile, a thriller that garnered 2 nominations for the Nastri d’Argento and 1 nomination for David di Donatello.
