Italian Film Festival Moviemov: November 9-18, 2011 at Greenbelt, Ayala Center, Makati City.
MOVIEMOV is a traveling festival supported by the General Direction for Cinema of the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Culture, in collaboration with the Italian Embassies in Bangkok and Manila, and by a consortium of public institutions and private partners which effectively contribute towards implementing a program of films and events for the cultural promotion of new Italian cinema in Asia. Therefore, Asia becomes a great opportunity as well as a testing ground for this attempted expansion into new markets and search for useful synergies, in an attempt to compare contemporary Italian cinema with the history and work of great Italian maestros and film masters of the hosting countries. We have chosen the free entry to all screenings, workshops and review meetings in order to boost participation among school and university students. A dense and multi-voice dialogue that - as we hope - will become a perpetual cultural event for audiences of so ancient and sophisticated artistic traditions and able to meet the offer of a new generation of writers, actors and producers who bode well for the renewal of Italian cinema.
