Five days before the beginning of the 15th edition of the Ischia Film Festival, after having revealed the guests of honor John Turturro and Claudia Cardinale and the President of this edition Krzysztof Zanussi, we announce the members of the two Juries of the international festival that will take place from June 24 to July 1 at the Aragonese Castle 

9 le giurie

[Ischia, June 20, 2017] The international jury, that will evaluate the fictional films – and will award the best feature and short films in the respective competitions –  will be composed by a wonderful trio led by the polish cinematographer Zanussi, the director of Black Sun, Persona non grata, Imperative, The Silent Touch, and A Year of the Quiet Sun, that was awarded the Golden Lion. He will work with the European documentaries producer Dagmar Jacobsen, already member of the EFA and in the crew of Pina by Wim Wenders and with Miguel Barros, director of the wonderful documentary Los Sin Tierra (about the Argentinian Landless Movement) and scriptwriter of important international projects, for example, Endless Night by Isabel Coixet with Juliette Binoche, Rinko Kikuchi and Gabriel Byrne, Blackthorn directed by Mateo Gil and starring Sam Shepard, Eduardo Noriega and Stephen Rea, as well as the tv series Gigantes that will be released in 2018.
Documentaries and works in the competition Denied Location - whose winner will be awarded with the new recognition Bayer Award - will be judged by two journalists and a costumer. Gianni Canova is the reference point of Sky for cinema, great founder of a magazine crucial for any cinephile as Duel and now chief of 8 e ½, periodic with a particular and interesting commitment toward Italian cinema. Writer of relevant essays on cinema and of an encyclopedia on the 7th art for Garzanti, patron and dean of the faculty of communication at IULM university in Milan, author of portraits of unforgettable human beings such as Ettore Scola and Nino Manfredi and also of multimedia exhibitions, from Le città invisibili in 2002 to Viva Vivaldi- The Four Seasons Mistery this year, he changed the way of seeing, understanding and feeling the audiovisual in the latest decades. From this year he’s member of the Superior Council for Cinema and Audiovisual of Mibact. He will be, together with Franco Dassisti, voice of cinema at the radio with the weekly program La Rosa Purpurea, on air on Radio 24 every Saturday, who has also created and conducted Radio Movie and Grande Schermo. Author of books also on music and sport, he won many prizes as film critic.
The face and voice of film critic, on tv and radio, will be complemented by Daniela Cancio, great costume designer, art director and twice David Di Donatello for Antonietta De Lillo’s Il resto di niente and Paolo Sorrentino’s La grande bellezza. She worked also with Francesca Comencini, Marco Risi, Vanzina brothers, Vincenzo Marra, Mario Martone, Michael Winterbottom, Alessandro Angelini and many others.
Here the great six: directors, art directors, producers, movie critics, cinema professionals, for two juries that won’t neglect any detail. They will bring to the directors from around the world, participating to the 4 competitions of Ischia Film Festival, all the strength and expertise of their judgements.
