The favorite meeting by all movie fans is come back, the Terra di Siena Film Festival is recommended to who wants to see previews, exhibitions and award cerimony in a dreamy set like Siena. The 17th edition is dedicated to Alain Delon and to Valerio Zurlini, a lesser known director, art critic and intellectual.
The competition includes many movies and national previews, besides the short movie contest, conceived to promote the best emerging directors. From 28th September to 3rd October you can meet famous actors, watch again rare movies, meet the directors and discover the hidden gems of cinema.
The opening movie will be “Sinestesia”, directed by Erik Bernasconi, scheduled at 6:00 pm at Vittorio Alfieri Theatre in Castelnuovo Berardenga; one of the guests is Alessio Boni, a renowned actor in Italy. Our advice is to join the event scheduled on Sunday 29th, because there will be a tasting at the wine cellars of Chianti Classico, an opportunity to taste the local specialties, then you can see the live concert of the citizens bands of Castelnuovo Berardenga.
At 5:00 pm there will be the short movie “La Voce di Berlinguer” by Mario Sesti and Teho Teardo, that earns great success at Venice festival; at 9:00 pm we suggest the restored version of the movie “La Prima Notte di Quiete” by Zurlini, with Alain Delon into the shoes of an high school teacher. About international previews, the movies are “Compulsion” by Egidio Coccimiglio, with Joe Mantegna and Kevin Dillon, and “Mr. America” by Leonardo Ferrari, both on Monday 30th September at Museum Complex of Santa Maria della Scala.
In the same location there will be the closing of festival with the inauguration of the exhibition about Valerio Zurlini “Un viaggio ai limiti del giorno” and the award cerimony. Take advantage of the Siena bound with cinema, because this festival is one of the most interesting events of the season, a nice way to begin Autumn.
