CICI FILM FESTIVAL - INVITED FILMMAKER 2019
The CICI Film Festival is a short film contest. Through an open call we select and host young filmmakers between the ages of 18 and 35, who in five days will have to make their own unpublished short film in the ancient village of Castellammare del Golfo. The festival generates professional and cultural experiences that are intertwined with the social fabric of the city. The seventh edition, scheduled from 07 to 14/09/2019, proposes a completely new regulation.
I have been chosen to direct the short film The God and Girl, which I pitched and subsequently wrote, in Sicily in September 2019. I will be joined by Italian cinematographer Matteo Bongiovanni and Italian producer Cristina Fenu in Castellammare del Golfo for the CICI Film Festival 2019.
The God and Girl is a modern retelling of the ancient Greek and Roman myth of Apollo and Daphne, with a twist ending! Thanks to Aimer Films Inc. for coming on board to associate produce this project.
