: these are the ten auteurs who will be competing for the eighth edition of the Mario Verdone Award, set to be handed out by siblings Carlo, Luca and Silvia Verdone during the 18th Lecce European Film Festival, which will unspool from 3-8 April 2017. 

(The article continues below - Commercial information)

The award, named after film critic Mario Verdone, is intended to single out a young Italian auteur (of a maximum of 40 years of age) who stood out particularly for his or her feature debut during the latest film season. “It won’t be easy to narrow it down to the best film,” the Verdone siblings assert, “also because over the last few years, so many youngsters have been coming to the fore, brimming with creativity and talent. But we will endeavour to assimilate our father’s critical opinion as we attempt to seek out those prerequisites for originality in terms of both the narrative and a surprising directing style.”
