VALLÉE D’AOSTE/Aida at the Lido

After a stopover in August at the Cervino CineMountain International Film Festival, “Aida”, the short by Mattia Temponi, will be screened at the Venice Film Festival in the Veneto Region’s area.
The film traces a collective fresco of Italy on 2nd June 1946, starting with the intimate working class story of Aida. It is produced by Mattia Puleo and Cristina Magoga for Cinefonie, Offi-Cine Veneto and Ouvert, with the contribution of the Compagnia di San Paolo, the Fondazione Istituto Piemontese Antonio Gramsci, the Film Commission Torino Piemonte and the Film Commission Vallée d’Aoste.

From 11th June to 7th July the Vallée D’Aoste hosted the filming of the Rai TV movie “L’amore il sole e le altre stelle” directed by Fabrizio Costa and produced by Maria Grazia and Giuseppe Saccà for Pepito Produzioni in collaboration with Rai Fiction.

The movie is realized with the support of the Fondazione Film Commission Vallée d’Aoste and was shot in Aosta, Fénis and the municipality of Valtournenche which sponsored the initiative, and the Astronomical Observatory of the Vallée d’Aoste.

The second series of “Rocco Schiavone” directed by Giulio Manfredonia, produced by Crossproductions with the support of the Film Commission Vallée d’Aoste, starring Marco Giallini, Ernesto D’Argenio, Claudia Vismara and Isabella Ragonese, will be broadcast in the fall.
While the new selective open call for the development of audiovisual projects, including debut works and documentaries, is currently being drafted (it is scheduled to open in the month of November), various film sets supported by the FC Vda Bando Doc Film Fund are active in the region and abroad including: “L’ultima sigaretta” by Alessandro Stevanon, produced by Long Neck Doc and “Marc Auge – un abécédaire” by Luca Bich, produced by Associazione Pourparler.
