[Ischia, July 1, 2016] The Ischia Film Festival, set at the Aragonese Castle of Ischia, offers a crescendo of emotions: every evening a growing number of spectators, fascinated by excellent screenings and breathtaking views, fill the theaters and discussions with artists. And there's more: the 14th edition of the Ischia Film Festival is drawing to a close, leaving the uncontrollable desire to return to Ischia as soon as possible.

The 2016 edition of the Ischia Film Festival awarded Best Director to the talented Italian director, screenwriter and journalist Antonietta De Lillo for her commitment, and for her unique way of telling the reality and history that characterize people and places. In particular, because over the years De Lillo has managed to interpret, through an innovative vision, the reality of social stratification, often with the use of advanced techniques. Through the director's choices, the characters and the stories take on unique characters, becoming one with the places they are told in. Antonietta De Lillo in effect represents Italian contemporary cinema; she declared that: "I'm glad to receive this award on the occasion of the second film in participation Oggi Insieme Domani Anche, in recognition of this new form of filmmaking which attaches Italy's ability to build a geography of our country to the testimonies of the many characters in the film. This was also possible thanks to 'Marechiarofilm' which followed me in the search for a contemporary language and has made the realization of my vision possible. I am particularly pleased to receive this recognition from the Ischia Film Festival, a festival that I really admire for being able to recognize the importance of the locations where films and stories take place as core elements of cinematic storytelling."

Director Andrea Vardi, here with Un Futuro Da Sogno: "There is no movie without a location; This Festival is unique because it makes a proper tribute to the importance of location in filmmaking, the magic that can be created on film and the socio-economic and cultural fallout that this may have on the territory. "

Very good response from the public and critics for the screening of Ben Sharrock's Pikadero; Carlos Solito with Mare D'Argento, Paola Rossi with Silo Un Camino Spirituale, Giorgio Lundmark with When We talk About The KGB.

Festival director Michelangelo Messina invited all those present not to miss the final round today, Friday 01 July, with beautiful screenings and important guests in the program and, finally, the awards ceremony tomorrow, Saturday, July 2, 2016.

"Another edition of the Ischia Film Festival is coming to an end - said Michelangelo Messina, patron of the event - this leaves us with contrasting emotions: on the one hand, there is a touch of melancholy as a business year ends and we must say goodbye to all our guests and friends; on the other hand, there is the awareness that the affection and esteem along with the consensus of so many people should motivate us to always work with more enthusiasm and passion. "
