At the start, in Lamezia Terme, the eleventh edition of the “Lamezia International Film Fest” edited by the film critic Gianlorenzo Franzì. Program full of screenings, debates and nationally renowned guests.

At the presentation press conference together with Franzì were the organizational director Valentina Archetta, the mayor of Lamezia Paolo Mascaro, the President of Trame, the ongoing anti-mafia book festival, Nuccio Iovene.

Franzì explained that this year the festival will be even richer: «We have decided to expand and extend ourselves – he said – also collaborating with other cultural realities of Lamezia such as Trame. The program is quite full of films, including unreleased ones that have not yet been distributed in cinemas. We have foreseen the three distinctive sections, Colpo d’occhio, Esordi d’Autore and Visioni Notturne as well as various productions of the Calabria Film Commission. We are going beyond Calabria also because it is our own region that is becoming an important location for various national and international film productions».

Cinema and Calabria therefore as a combination which, perhaps unexpectedly, in recent years is becoming a launching pad for a new cultural perspective. TOThe Festival also included the important collaboration of the Reportage Association of the journalist and publisher, Annamaria Persico. responsible for various activities over the five days of the event.

The mayor is satisfied Paolo Mascaro for whom «today Lamezia is the capital of southern cinema. An extraordinary synergy is being built between public and private. This Festival will also visit various places in the city, offering a positive image of Lamezia. This time – Mascaro then underlined – the collaboration between the two initiatives allows us to connect two important realities”.

Also Nuccio Iovane highlighted the importance of the partnership between Trame and Liff. «There has been talk many times – said Iovene – about the inability to network in the third sector. Today we are finally doing it with cultural initiatives of a certain importance.”

Annamaria Persico for her part announced the initiatives that the Reportage association will carry out during the days of the Festival. With Teresa Matera’s book, a digital storytelling will be created which will lead from the historic center to the Mulino delle Fate with the accompanying voice of the Fairy Gelsomina. Also during the LIFF days, an international literary competition dedicated to Franco Costabile will be announced and the Nautilus prize will also be presented.
