by Rolando Ravello. In some cities directors and actors will also be present and the first guest, in Hamburg, for the first leg of the tour, will be Gianni Amelio.

As in previous years, the festival will host a sort of competition; all viewers will be given a card with which they will be able to rank the film viewed. The movie which obtains the best recognition will be awarded in Berlin at the end of the festival and will achieve distribution in Germany, based on an agreement between the Kairos Filmverleih company and Made in Italy, which will contribute to the film’s release and subtitling. In addition, the results of the audience’s recognition will be available to all German distributors and, like in the past, will help successful movies to find buyers for potential cinema or TV viewing.

In order to increase awareness about the movies on offer and about Italian cinema in general, a catalogue containing information tabs on the selected movies along with other information from critics will be published and distributed for free in cinema theatres involved in the tour. 

In Switzerland the Cinema Italiano festival which Made in Italy organizes together with Cinélibre, the Swiss film clubs’ association, with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Zurich and the sponsorship of the Italian Embassy, will kick off on 6 October in Bern, with the participation of Giuseppe Piccioni, director of the movie Il rosso e il blu [+see also:
