ISCHIA GLOBAL FILM & MUSIC FEST
A line-up of stars in Ischia, from 9-17 July, thanks to the 14th edition of the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest, conceived by Pascal Vicedomini and promoted by the Ischia International Arts Academy.
An entire week dedicated to culture and international cinema at the Albergo della Regina Isabella, including worldwide previews and other charitable events. This year, with the Ischia Legend Awards, the festival will honour the director of Italian photography Vittorio Storaro, famous for his editing of Woody Allen’s film “Cafè Society”, and the American screenwriter Barry Morrow, who will present his first film as the director of “Smitten!”, filmed in Italy and based on his screenplay. And there’s more! There will be a showing, for the first time in Italy, of the film Muhammad (God’s Messenger), by Iranian director Majid Majidi, about the birth of Islam, with music by the composer Allah Rakha Rahman, who received an Oscar for his theme song in The Millionaire, with special effects by Scott E. Anderson, who won an Oscar for the film Babe. This important event by Vicedomini will also dedicate a special retrospective to the director and screenwriter David Cronenberg, author of several well known films about the history of cinema, including “Videodrome”, “Crash” and “La Mosca”. >> www.ischiaglobal.com
