This music-filled romp earned a Golden Lion nomination at the Venice Film Festival. Ciro (Giampaolo Morelli) is among the most feared men in Naples, one of two killers at the service of crime boss Don Vincenzo (Carlo Buccirosso), “the King of Fish.” One night a young nurse, Fatima (Serena Rossi), finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees too much; Ciro is given the job of getting rid of her. But when the two end up face to face, they recognize each other as childhood sweethearts. Set in the beautiful Bay of Naples, the movie is a musical, an action thriller but also a romantic comedy with scores from Neapolitans songs to rap.

Gatta Cenerentola

Cinderella the Cat (2017)
86 min. – Animation / Crime / Thriller

Languages: Italian (English subtitles)


he classic fairytale gets an unexpectedly dark and hip update in this strikingly animated tale from the Italian directorial foursome Ivan Cappiello, Marino Guarnieri, Dario Sansone and Alessandro Rak (all newcomers except for Rak, who earlier directed European Film Award winner The Art of Happiness). Set almost entirely aboard a retro-futuristic ship in the harbor of Naples, the story re-imagines Cinderella as a 17-year-old, vaguely emo-punk chick who's about to be married off to a megalomaniac drug dealer who wants to turn Naples into the crime capital of the world. Of course, there's an evil stepmother who's raising her own children as — what else? — cabaret dancers, and also a heroic policeman who might be able to give this crazy, music-filled and intentionally somewhat chaotic ride a happy ending.

The Format Dilemma:
With the emergence of so many media platforms, how do emerging filmmakers identify a target format? In an evolving marketplace, with more platforms and formats than ever before in the history of entertainment, ranging from sVOD, Network, Cable, Feature, Shorts, Serialized Short-Form, 10x10, 3x25, Vertical Handheld, and so on; how do filmmakers gage which studios, platforms, and formats to target for their projects?

How Dark Can We Go?
sVOD seems to be inundated with a wave of very dark themes. With super-hit TV shows like Stranger Things, Man In High Castle, Mr. Robot, Westworld, Game of Thrones and most recently Altered Carbon, the list of post-apocalyptic and dark-themed series appears on the rise and that the media zeitgeist is getting darker and darker. However, with a new wave of #social movements sweeping across America today, from #MeToo, #TimesUp, #BlackLivesMatter, #Enough, #MarchForOurLives, it appears that there might be a disconnect between the media studios are offering and audiences are craving. How will these movements affect the stories that filmmakers want to tell and audiences want to see?

Dammi una Mano

Lend a Hand (2016)
86 min. – Comedy / Drama

Languages: Italian (English subtitles)


Caterina is a young and well-known psychologist, her life is perfect: Love, job, family, friends are all that she wishes. But one day something happens which threatens her happy but a little bit unconscious existence. Her father dies, leaving her full of debts owing to her sister Viola who has gone through the family property; a provincial scandal disgraces her reputation and she loses her job, her husband leaves her. For the first time Caterina must start all over again and begin a new life. A deeply different life from the one she has always defended and loved. After a rocambolesque cheerful series of events she will discover that her deepest strength is this one: never to stop, always being in motion, lifting her head up once more, trusting and leaning on those people, (such as her friends Ludovica and Sara and her fragile sister Viola), who she had always thought she was to help.
