Angelo Gioe’, the Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Melbourne and curator of Naples, the heartbeat of italian cinema, talks about the New Neapolitan Cinema, a growing movement and now an artistic reference that has contributed to portray Naples as an emerging and iconic city. Together with Campania region, Naples is experiencing a real boom in the audio-visual industry. The result is a new image of Naples, which combines its contemporaneity with its historical identity, the tradition of stereotypes and that of folklore. The heterogeneity of topics and stories, as well as the diversity of cinematic styles will fascinate an international audience.

The Italian Film Festival opens in Sydney on the 13h September and it runs nationally in Australia at Palace Cinemas until the 19th October.
