Not just “Ammore e malavita”: Naples and the whole Campania region will land at the Venice Lido with a total of 9 films dis- tributed between the Official Selection and the fringe sections.
Out of competition there will be Antonietta De Lillo with “Il signor Rotpeter” inspired by a short story by Franz Kafka, in the Orizzonti [Horizons] section is “Gatta Cenerentola”, an animated feature directed by Alessandro Rak, Ivan Cappiello, Marino Guarnirei and Dario Sansone; “Nato a Casal di Principe” directed by Bruno Oliviero and written by Amedeo Letizia and Maurizio Braucci will be screened in the Cinema in the Garden section.
There will be three lms in the International Critics’ Week: “Il cratere”, a documentary by Luca Bellino and Silvia Luzzi, in competition, “Veleno”, by Diego Olivares, a special out of competition event, and the short “Malamenti” by Francesco Di Leva.
The packed list ends with “L’equilibrio”, by Vincenzo Marra presented during the Giornate degli Autori, and “Gomorra VR – We Own the street” which will be presented in the Virtual Reality section.
The films have been made with the collaboration of the Film Commission Regione Campania, and two, “Il signor Rotpeter” and “Nato a Casal di Principe”, also benefited from the regional contribution in support of productions.
“ The number and the quality of the films selected for Venice are proof that Campania is not just a land of artistic creativity but is also capable of expressing entrepreneurship”, comments the director of the Film Commission, Maurizio Gemma:
“The construction of an audiovisual system has always been the strategy of the Film Commission Regione Campania and now that, finally, regional policies have provided the foundations for a concrete and enduring development, our project has acquired greater solidity”.
In fact, from the launch of the Cinema Law in Campania last fall to the first bid announced last spring with an allocation of € 4 million, Campania is up and running again, positioning itself among the most active regions on a national level.
