The travelling Italian Film Festival “Moviemov: Italian Cinema Now” makes a home this year with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) at the FDCP Cinematheque Centre Manila, following its string of successful editions in 2011, 2012, and 2014. Moviemov is organized by Playtown Roma and supported by the General Direction for Cinema of the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Culture, Italian Trade Agency in Rome and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Rome, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in the Philippines and the FDCP.
The festival pays tribute to contemporary Italian cinema by travelling Asia, especially the Philippines, and screening the various works of art created by Italy’s impressive crop of talent. Moviemov makes a first in its run in our country by partnering with the FDCP and showing its films exclusively at the Cinematheque Manila this 2016.
The festival is also supported by San Miguel Corporation, Gourmet Farms, Rustan’s, Philippine Italian Association, Augustea Ship Manning, Elburg Shipmanagement, Rina Academy, Fila, Trevi Foundations, L’Opera, Caruso, Cibo di M, and Ralph’s Wines.
