I am pleased to announce that my short film Nunna Mia e la Barca (My Grandmother and the Boat) will be screening at the 2010 Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville, VA. It will be shown in the Virginia Short Films section on Saturday November 6 @ 5:00 p.m. at the Vinegar Hill Theatre.
Below is the info for the event:
These six short films show the incredible variety of talent working in Virginia today. Beardo is a documentary on the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championships and the men behind the facial hair. America the Best is musical mockumentary highlighting the adventures of three high school students and their (travel) agent, on the rise from required classroom assignment to the global stage. Perspective is the story of two artists and how they find each other through their imagination. Has he imagined her or has she imagined him? Money Ain’t a Thing follows two friends dealing with love, loss, and staying afloat. Prism shows how one cataclysmic event refracts the lives of five sets of people and shatters the routine of everyday life. In My Grandmother and the Boat , the director explores his grandmother’s daily life and references her Italian history, including her surviving the sinking of the Andrea Doria.
The event includes a discussion with the filmmakers.
