VINICIO MARCHIONI WINS THE SNGCI AWARD
OF THE 20TH EDITION OF THE EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL
The SNGCI Award for Best European Actor has been awarded today. The award, assigned every year by the National Union of Italian Film Journalists, is one of the official prizes of the European Film Festival directed by Alberto La Monica. The Jury chaired by Laura Delli Colli, President of the Union, has awarded the prize with the following motivation:
“To Vinicio Marchioni, protagonist of the film by Francesco Rizzi “Cronofobia”
Because even through the silences of his character, a simple gesture or an intense look, he is able to give shape and voice to the mystery of a man who hides a secret, keeping the emotional suspense high throughout the story.”
The European Film Festival is conceived and organised by the Cultural Association “Art Promotion” and produced by Apulia Film Commission Foundation and by Puglia Region and funded by Patto per la Puglia programme (FSC, Fund for Regional Development and Cohesion). It is also supported by the Municipality of Lecce and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism – Directorate General for Cinema.
