10.19.2011 – MovieMov is proud to bring the Italian Film Festival to the Philippines. There’s a lot of more than just the usual film fest. They have announced a red carpet experience not only the Italian Film showing of some notable flicks but there will be the Italian vibe that will be seen this year.

The General Direction for Cinema of the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Culture, in collaboration with the Italian Embassies in Bangkok and Manila, as well as Institutional and Private Partners is bringing this endeavor to Asia spreading the word what present Italian Cinema is all about.

Sharing contemporary Italian cinema in Manila is a good opportunity to have new audiences, and more importantly, to have collaborations between the Italian and the Filipino filmmakers, creating films that are made up of an international exchange of ideas.

The organizers of this festival have chosen the free entry to all screenings, workshops and review meetings in order to boost participation among school and university students. A dense and multi-voice dialogue that – as the organizers hope – will become a perpetual cultural event for audiences of so ancient and sophisticated artistic traditions and able to meet the offer of a new generation of writers, actors and producers who bode well for the renewal of Italian cinema.

The presence of some notable guests from the Philippine movie industry during the press launch means they have the full support in bringing this event in full swing.
The Embassy of Italy to the Philippines has been organizing very wonderful and successful film festivals in the past years which have been very well-attended and loved by the Filipino and foreign audiences alike.

Their latest film festival, entitled Moviemov: Italian Cinema Now is going to be absolutely fantastic.

Co-organized by the Asiatica Film Mediale (organizers of the most important Asian Film Festival in Italy) and Playtown (organizers of the Film Festival in Rome), Moviemov aims to be like the Venice or the Cannes Film Festival, in which the producers, directors, actors, etc. of the films to be shown will actually come to the Philippines.

On top of that, there will also be roundtables among the Italian and Filipino filmmakers in order to have an international exchange of ideas and concepts in making films, and to have future collaborations and lasting partnerships together.

Two workshops by famous horror-film-director Dario Argento and award-winning composer Franco Piersanti will be conducted as well, and this will definitely draw in hundreds of people, be they students of film or film enthusiasts.
