Berlinale picks Turin for pics

Pact means Rome will not get any preems from Berlin fest

ROME — The Berlinale will screen 10 pics in the Italian city of Turin, less than two weeks after the Teutonic fest wraps.

The first Berlinale in Turin initiative will unspool in the Cinema Massimo theater March 3-5, with helmers and talent in tow.

Exclusive agreement means Rome, which hosted a similar event last year, will not get any preems from the Berlin Film Fest’s 56th edition, which runs Feb. 9-19.

Berlinale in Turin titles will be chosen from all fest sections and will include one Kinderfilmfest entry to unspool as a matinee for schoolkids.

Event, organized by Turin-based production company Voir Trade, is supported by local government and Turin’s National Museum of Cinema.
