El Festival de Turín anuncia su programación online
Why Not You, de Evi Romen

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

A selection consisting of 133 films, including 64 feature films, 52 world premieres and 16 international premieres, a jury populated entirely by women and a specific focus on emerging talent (with 29 debut works jostling among the feature films): these are the defining features of the 38th Torino Film Festival, the first to be directed by Stefano Francia di Celle and also the first (and hopefully the last) to unfold entirely online between 20 and 28 November, courtesy of Covid, via the online streaming platform MyMovies.

Among these titles we find the Romanian LGBTQ+ drama Poppy Field [+lee también:

by Alessandro Grande, which tells the story of a father and his daughter devastated by a tragic event in an unusual rendering of Calabria, starring Francesco Montanari and Ginevra Francesconi. The competition jury, which doesn’t have a president, is entirely female and consists of Syrian director Waad Al-Kateab, her British colleague Martha Fiennes, Japanese actress Jun Ichikawa, Italian animation director Martina Scarpelli and Iranian writer Homayra Sellier.

Distinguishing themselves among the documentaries, we find My America by Barbara Cupisti, conveying the views and voices of ordinary Americans who are anxious to preserve a level of moral integrity and uphold the ideals of the US Constitution, Due scatole dimenticate - Viaggio in Vietnam by Cecilia Mangini and Paolo Pisanelli, which is based upon a huge, unpublished work of photo reportage, and Nuovo Cinema Paralitico by Davide Ferrario, offering up little snapshots of Italy with each segment minutes long.

New additions to this year’s event include the Rol’s Rooms section which is dedicated to genre film, “a place of mystery and the unknown”, and which is named after the sensitive Turin-born painter Gustavo Adolfo Rol. European titles include the Danish work Breeder by Jens Dahl, the Spanish series Antidisturbios by Rodrigo Sorogoyen (read our review) and the Hungarian title The Philosophy of Horror - A Symphony of Film Theory by Péter Lichter and Bori Máté. On offer within the TFFdoc section, meanwhile, are works such as Zaho Zay [+lee también:

In terms of masterclasses, directors Aleksandr Sokurov and Mohsen Makhmalbaf will be among those sharing their expertise, while the new Stella della Mole Award, rewarding artistic innovation, will go to actress Isabella Rossellini.

Last but not least, the TFL Meeting Event - the international co-production forum organised by TorinoFilmLab - will adopt a wholly digital form this year, unfolding between 16 - 20 November and uniting upwards of 60 projects, spanning films and TV series, all in search of producers, co-producers, sales agents or other partners.
