ITALIAN CINEMA WORLDWIDE
MEDIA Salles at SHOWEAST 2005
(Orlando, United States, 24 October 2005)
The third leg of Italian Cinema Worldwide 2005 is about
to commence. This initiative, made possible thanks to the support of the
Italian Government, brings the most recent Italian productions into the
limelight at the main international gatherings of cinema exhibitors. Following
the first two editions of Italian Cinema Worldwide, held at Cinema Expo
International (Amsterdam, 27-30 June) and at Kino Expo (Moscow, CIS, 13-16
September), MEDIA Salles will be promoting Italian films at ShowEast
(Orlando, United States, 24 October), a particularly interesting
event since exhibitors not only from the United States but also from South
America, the Caribbean area and Canada will be taking part in it.
MEDIA Salles will be present with a selection
of the most recent Italian productions soon to be released in theatres
on the American continent.
The presentation will be held on 24 October from 9.30 am to 12.00
pm during the International Day, in Crystal Ballroom J of the Orlando
World Center Marriott.
It will be followed by a “Networking Lunch” giving operators
particularly involved in circulating Italian films the opportunity to
meet and share experience and strategies.
The programme of trailers includes:
- Once You're Born
- Come Into The Light
- Good Morning, Night
- The Days of Abandonment
- Persona Non Grata
- The Keys to The House
- The Tiger and The Snow
Elisabetta Brunella, Secretary General
of MEDIA Salles, will present both the “Special ShowEast”
issue of the MEDIA Salles’ Newsletter “European Cinema Journal”
no. 4/2005, which includes the fact cards on those films soon
coming to the markets addressed by the event, and the next appointment
with Italian Cinema Worldwide:
– CineAsia, Beijing, China,
13-15 December 2005.

MEDIA Salles, a project operating within
the framework of the European Union's MEDIA Programme,
with the support of the Italian Government, fosters theatrical
distribution of European audiovisual products, both by high profile campaigns
involving Europe's cinema exhibitors and by initiatives to raise the visibility
of European productions with industry players and potential audiences,
creating specialized information channels on a global scale. Thus the
current initiatives from MEDIA Salles dovetail in a program with a triple
focus - training, promotion and information - and maximum combined effect.
Italian Cinema Worldwide is a MEDIA Salles’ initiative,
held thanks to the support of the Italian Government.
