Italian Film Festival Cardiff 2017
The Italian Film Festival Cardiff is back for its third year and this year's offerings are brighter than ever. Its programme includes a powerful picture of contemporary Italy whilst casting an ironic eye over her past. Documentary-style dramas imbued with Italian neo-realism, comedies and animation, all from some of the brightest stars in Italian film, explore themes of environmental damage and social integration. This year's festival is proud to announce a number of UK premieres, some fresh from Venice.
There will also be a chance to see the beautiful photographs of Giuseppe Collacciani from his new exhibition 'Landscape' on the big screen before the film.
Giuseppe A. Collacciani is a landscape photographer. Born in 1976 in Ortona, on the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo, but has spent most of his life in the midst of the Apennines. He has travelled Italy extensively. Now based in Cardiff, he is very much looking forward to exploring every corner of Wales.
The beauty, grace and strength of Art and the nature in which these attributes make themselves manifest are his passions. He first began exploring reflex photography in 1997, committing his passions and emotions to film. He focuses his camera on Nature and Landscape, paying great attention to light and shadow, and the colours that highlight different aspects of the photo.
