Sicilian Film Fest Miami


Celebrating its sixth year, Sicilian Cinema has made a name for itself thanks to the Sicilian Film Festival (SFF). The seven-day Festival was created in Miami in 2006 by the Sicilian-born sculptor, musician, writer, and designer Emanuele Viscuso. Now residing in Miami Beach, Viscuso seeks to underline the importance of Sicily, its cinema, literature, art, food and wine, fashion, and culture on an international platform.

Miami Beach,
FL…March 12, 2012…
Last week Sicilian Film Festival PresidentEmanuele
Viscuso
 spoke at the introduction of the Italian film, “Annalisa/Il
Paese Delle Spose Infelici” 
that made its North American Premiere at
the 29th Annual Miami International Film
Festival
.  Viscuso, a Sicilian native and Miami Beach resident,
alongside Director Pippo Mezzapesa gave the audience a window
into the beauty of rural Southern Italy through a “coming of age” tale
- one of the many cinematic themes explored through a larger selection of
Italian films screened each April at Viscuso's festival.  

The Sicilian Film
Festival (SFF)
, now in its 7th year, provides a continued
opportunity for South Floridians to experience films by directors primarily
from Southern Italy alongside events that highlight all of the regions art, literature,
food and wine, music, fashion, and culture. 
Screenings take place at the Miami
Beach Cinematheque
from April 11-17,
2012
.

“The Greater Miami Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau has
declared the month of March as Miami
Movie Month
to coincide with the city’s efforts to promote good cinema from
around the world through film festivals both large and small,” states Viscuso.  “I am very happy to be part of this cultural
growth!”

Feature
films at this year’s SFF include: "Martino's Summer/L'estate di
Martino" 
starring Treat WilliamsLuchino
Visconti
's classic "The Leopard/Il Gattopardo" starring Burt Lancaster and Claudia Cardinale, Golden Lion, Venice Film Festival and
Golden Bear, Berlin Festival recipient; and Golden Globe and Oscar nominated
film, "I am Love/Io sonno l'amore" by Luca
Guadagnino
 and starring Tilda Swinton.

Other
events include a photography exhibit; a VIP Cocktail Reception at the private
residence of the Consul General of Italy; a book-signing event; and awards
ceremony with announcement of the SFF Special Lifetime Achievement Award to
be presented to actress, Vanessa
Redgrave
at an official SFF event anticipated to occur this summer in Rome.

While the festival’s home base is Miami Beach, the SFF hosts
events in both the US and other cities worldwide including last year’s
presentation of Lifetime Achievement
Award
to Claudia Cardinale at
the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival, and the awarding
of Honorary Doctorate in Tourism to Miami Beach Vice-Mayor Michael Gongora in Caserta, Italy.

In speaking about a past festival, Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower stated: “We appreciate the
efforts of this Festival in bringing the Sicilian culture to the fore and
sharing the beauty and life of Sicily with the people of Miami and the US.
Through theater, music, art, and love, boundaries are traversed and all nations
learn to share each other’s works and get to understand and appreciate
different cultures.”
