mostra de cinema itlià
Celebrating the best of Italian film from 2013, the Mostra de Cinema Italià returns to Barcelona (MCIB) for its second edition. The festival will see screenings of eight films and eight short films selected by critics Titta Fiorce and Maurizio Di Rienzo. Amongst those being shown are Anni Felici, Indebito and L’Arbitro (pictured); all the films will be presented by their respective directors and various of the participating actors will also attend. The programme also includes a live concert from Vinicio Capossela, performing songs from his latest album Rebetiko Gymnastas, following the showing of Indebito at La Pedrera, which will inaugurate the festival. As part of the mostra, the MCIB will be awarding two prizes; the first of which is the CSCI (Centro di Studi Sul Cinema Italiano) honour award, to be received by actress Valeria Gulino for her career success. The second is the CSCI award for best short film—the winner will be chosen from the eight participants and decided by a jury made up of directors Carmen Isasa, Antonio Piazza and Fabio Grassadonia.
