After a 2019 filled with a succession of projects in the region, the
Emilia- Romagna Film Commission comes to the Berlinale with a film in the main competition: “Volevo nascondermi” by Giorgio Diritti in which Elio Germano plays the painter and sculptor Antonio Ligabue (released in movie theaters from February 27).
Filmed in Guastalla, Gualtieri and Reggio Emilia, the feature is produced by Palomar (in collaboration with Rai Cinema), and also involved the Tecnopolo of Reggio Emilia which has become the company’s operational base in Emilia Romagna.
The protagonists of the Forum section of the Berlinale will instead include David Zamagni and Nadia Ranocchi of Collettivo Zapruder with “Zeus Machine. L’Invincibile” dedicated to the twelve labors of Hercules which are celebrated in unusual and topical versions.
In the year dedicated to Federico Fellini, a visit from the Cineteca di Bologna to the Berlinale was inevitable which, with The Film Foundation, will be bringing the restored version of “Il bidone” realized in Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata, and curated in collaboration with Titanus thanks to the support of the George Lucas Family Foundation.
At the EFM the Film Commission will be promoting the 2020 open calls destined for local, national and foreign productions in the theatrical and audiovisual sphere, which are divided into two calls: the first will close on February 28, while the second will be launched from July 1 to 31.
