ISCHIA FILM FESTIVAL 2018

The XVI edition of the Campania island festival opens with Gabriele Salvatores and his diptych of the invisible boy. But it will only be the beginning.

Oscar winner Gabriele Salvatores will open the XVI Ischia Film Festival. A great start for the event that sees a very rich program unravel from June 30th to July 7th. The Mediterranean director is the Italian author who has most explored the genres of cinematography, and will tell the audience of Ischia his constant desire to change. He will do this by presenting The Invisible Boy and The Invisible Boy – Second Generation, his diptych dedicated to the adventures of a young superhero.

Diversity, courage, even sound unconsciousness. These are some of the key words that characterize this Ischia Film Festival 2018, built magnificently by the artistic directors Michelangelo Messina and Boris Sollazzo and that will develop through the one hundred and thirteen selected films, including thirty-three previews, including eight world titles. Important numbers, as are the thirty countries that these works represent, from Burkina Faso to the Dominican Republic, passing through Iran, Turkey and Italy. Many of these works will compete for the prizes of the five official competitions: feature films, short films, documentaries, Location Negata and Scenari Campani, the latter promoted to a competitive section thanks to the support of BPER Banca. Others will be the Best Of this year and this edition, and will be accompanied by directors and actors who have made this year of Italian cinema very special. The list of guests who will parade on the red carpet of the Aragonese Castle is very long. Beyond Salvatores, Alessandro Aronadio and Edoardo Leo, director and interpreter of Io c’è, are expected for the opening night of 30 June. Leonardo Di Costanzo, who with his L’intrusa is a fresh winner of the Golden Globe. Anna Valle, who will accompany the imperfect age. And then Manetti Bros, Fabio De Luigi, Roberta Torre, Guglielmo Poggi, Renato Carpentieri, Fabrizio Gifuni, Claudia Gerini, Giulia Michelini, Vinicio Marchioni, Nicola Giuliano, Alessandro Rak, Federico Buffa, Sandra Milo, Carlo Delle Piane, Caterina Murino, Caterina Shulha, Lillo Petrollo, The Jackal, Laura Bispuri, Massimiliano Gallo, Nicola Nocella, Bruno Oliviero, Berardo Carboni, Matilda De Angelis, Concita De Gregorio, Antonello Piroso, Fabio De Caro, Gigione, Milena Mancini, Daniele Vicari, Nicola Guaglianone, Pippo Mezzapesa, Yvonne Sciò, Michela Andreozzi, Massimiliano Vado, Giancarlo Fontana, Giuseppe G. Stasi.
And then great authors who will receive the right tribute. Gabriele Muccino, Carlo Verdone, Peter Greenaway and, for his seventy years of career, Carlo Delle Piane, extraordinary actor in our history of cinema.

They will all meet at the Terrace which will host the aperitifs with the stars, before the evening’s program on the five screens of the festival. Programming enriched with two great Italian premieres. On July 1st I, God and Bin Laden, crazy comedy with Nicolas Cage directed by Larry Charles, the man behind Borat (in Italian cinemas from July 27th distributed by Koch Media). July 4th will be the turn of Gringo, who will arrive in Italy with the title Cannabis: budding scammers (Vision Distribution), black comedy with Charlize Theron. Speaking of charm and talent, there is plenty of it in Ocean’s 8, scheduled for July 3 for the second Italian screening. And this year there will be the international convention on Cineturismo, Friday 6 July, in the presence of the Director-General Cinema Nicola Borrelli. An appointment now traditional, strongly desired by the founder of the festival Michelangelo Messina, to take stock of a sector that is now a central reality in our cinema system.

As already stated, Oscar winner Gabriele Salvatores will open the XVI Ischia Film Festival. The director of the Mediterranean will present The Invisible Boy and The Invisible Boy – Second Generation, his diptych dedicated to the adventures of a young superhero. In perfect contemporaneity, at 8:45 pm, Alessandro Aronadio will tell the public the genesis of Io c’è, a mystical and earthly comedy, a return to Ischia for the winner of the best director award last year. The program of the Cathedral of the Assumption is completed with the doc in competition Eu Sunt Hercules, a curious trip to the most popular spa resort in Romania. Also at 8:45 pm, Leonardo Di Costanzo will present at La casa del sole The intruder, fresh winner of the Golden Globe for best film. Following the Israeli doc in competition The Island, set in the French hospital in East Jerusalem St. Louis. At the Bourbon Prison we will find Anna Valle who will introduce the film that opens the feature film competition, L’imperfetta age, followed by Revenir, a story of migrants that inaugurates the Location Negata section.

JIM CHAPMAN x CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Ahead of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, Jim Chapman, Writer and Content Creator, celebrates the upcoming A-list event with exclusive insight into the most memorable moments from previous years, and what to expect from this year’s festival.

 

Jim gives us the lowdown on Cannes, one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.  He recalls back in 2011, when Kanye West performed an exclusive after party set and invited Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx onstage for an impromptu performance of his hit single, ‘Gold Digger’.

 

Jim also recounts his untold insight from the 2015 festival when Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and director Denis Villeneuve all wore high heels to the premiere of Sicario, as a demonstration against an antiquated dress code requiring women to wear heels to all evening gala premieres. Famously,  Julia Roberts appeared barefoot on the red carpet as an act of fashion rebellion against the same rule too.

 

As Cannes is one of the most anticipated red carpet events of the awards calendar,  Jim is expecting to see Hollywood star, Cate Blanchett pull out all the stops, as this year,  as she has been named President of the Jury, alongside other actresses including Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux to name but a few.

 

Jim also discusses the stir caused by organizers who have banned Netflix productions being considered for the Palme D’Or and Netflix’s decision to withdraw their title from the festival.

Lakeith Stanfield x Ermenegildo Zenga

Critically acclaimed actor Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta, Come SundaySorry To Bother You, The Girl In The Spider’s Web) wowed viewers when he walked the red carpet at the 90th Annual Academy Awards ® wearing a custom-made sustainable tuxedo made by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The look was styled by Michaela Erlanger and worn in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress ethical fashion campaign.

The tuxedo is a navy Tussah Silk, which is sturdier than cultivated silk. Typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silk moths, the silk is found in a natural state with minimal human intervention and very little invasion to the process. For this reason, unlike a silk yarn produced with greater mechanical interventions, the yarn of Tussah silk features irregularities creating a rich texture, typical of wild, natural breeding.

In 2009, Amis Cameron created Red Carpet Green Dress with the goal of creating awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, Red Carpet Green Dress works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

To qualify as a Red Carpet Green Dress eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from recycled, organic or repurposed materials, use hand-made detailing or incorporate natural dye processing – always with a focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2018 partners, TESLA and Absolut Elyx. Absolut Elyx is a company that is built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every copper purchase in the Elyx Boutique, allows the luxury vodka company to provide safe water to more than 100,000 people worldwide with the help of Water for People.

It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif. with her sister Rebecca Amis. This assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures smaller class sizes, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus. Through these key elements, MUSE School CA paves the way in creating leaders of the future.
