Fondazione Pesaro Nuovo Cinema is
pleased to announce the dates for the 58th Edition of the Mostra
Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema, to be held in Pesaro from 18th to 25th
June 2022 with the contribution of the Ministry of Culture, Board of Cinema and
Audiovisual, Municipality of Pesaro and Marche Region.
The traditional and prestigious film
festival with art director Pedro Armocida, also opens to entries for the
international competition, with no restrictions on format, genre, duration or
language; the film criticism competition and video essay competition. Following
last year’s success involving thousands of spectators, the Pesaro Film Festival
returns this year with an extensive programme, with many novelties and
consistent focus towards new forms and new languages for cinema and
audiovisuals. Next edition’s Special Event on Italian cinema will be dedicated
to Mario Martone. With a retrospective exhibit of his films and a
meeting open to the public, the Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema will
honour the great Neapolitan director. Martone’s latest success, presented in
Competition at the Venice Film Film Festival, is The King of Laughter.
He just wrapped shooting on his upcoming film, Nostalgia, starring
Pierfrancesco Favino and based on Ermanno Rea’s eponymous novel.
Martone commented on this tribute with
the following words: “I’m happy and honored that Artistic Director Pedro
Armocida and the scientific committee of the Pesaro Film Festival proposed me
to present the retrospective of my films, and I thank them for this. The spirit
that has always inspired the festival makes Pesaro a beautiful place for those
who love cinema. As a spectator, I’ve always and fully identified with that
spirit, and I hope that my films could provide a new perspective in the big
panorama of festival’s retrospectives. Now more than ever we want a cinema to
be enjoyed theatrically, that could be discussed among people at the end of the
screenings, that could be a live experience. See you in Pesaro, then!”.
