Conceived and produced by Tiziana Rocca, this year too Filming Italy Sardegna Festival will take place in collaboration with APA, the Association of Audiovisual Producers chaired by Giancarlo Leone and under the general direction of Chiara Sbarigia, with the support of Forte Village and in collaboration with UCI Cinemas and under the patronage of the Regione autonoma della Sardegna, Comune di Cagliari, ANICA and the Consorzio Costa Smeralda.
The second edition of the Filming Italy Sardegna Festival confirms that it is one of the few Italian events aimed at cinema and television audiences that allows the characters of the small and large screens to interact with the spectator, the unique engine for the success of a cultural product,” says Tiziana Rocca. One of the objectives is to bring together the world of entertainment in our country and abroad, with the aim of promoting internationalisation and our territories. We have therefore decided to present national and international personalities who, in their professional lives, have measured themselves with both cinema and television”.
In addition to special screenings such as Aladdin with singer Naomi Rivieccio (Italian voice of Jasmine) and A mano disarmata, there are also many events focused on TV like a special one for Grey’s Anatomy with Jesse Williams, the preview of the Gotham series with Erin Richards and an episode of the series To Catch a Thief.
In collaboration with APA, DG Cinema MiBAC, Italy for Movies, ANAC, ANICA, ANEC, two panels will be presented: Moviement: cinema does not go on holiday and The appeal of Italian audiovisual products in the international market, in which the major Italian and international producers and broadcasters will participate.
