, the latest film by Carlo Mazzacurati, will open, on 18 July next, the 33rd edition of the Sergio Amidei Award (taking place until 24 July) in Gorizia. The festival, devoted to the International Award for Best Screenplay, has this year selected a brand new formula by dedicating its entire edition to the director and screenwriter from Padua who recently passed away; he was a true expression of the stories of and of life in Northeast Italy.

Remembered and celebrated with great affection by the entire cinema world, Mazzacurati's life will be told during the seven days of the Amidei programme through his complete works, from the early Eighties to the present day. The round table dedicated to Mazzacurati on 19 July will be centred on screenplay and will feature many of the writers who supported him over the years: from Enzo Monteleone (who shared in his debuts) to Doriana Leondeff, trusted screenwriter during the last decade. Accompanying them also will be Marco Pettenello (one of the authors of La sedia della felicità), Francesco Bruni (screenwriter, director and president of 100autori), Claudio Piersanti and Massimo Gaudioso (member of the jury of the Sergio Amidei Award and well-known by the public at large as the screenwriter of Gomorrah [+see also:
