Shooting Stars to hit Rome

European Film Promotion brings thesps to fest

The Rome Film Festival is becoming a satellite venue for European Film Promotion’s Shooting Stars program, which showcases new European acting talent.

Three of the 10 Shooting Stars at the Berlin Film Festival will be tubthumped in Rome, where festgoers will have a chance to see their pics.

They are Italian Michele Riondino, who will be seen in Valerio Mieli’s romancer “Ten Winters”; Croatia’s Zrinka Cvitesic, in Sarajevo-set “On the Path” by Jasmila Zbanic; and Finland’s Pihla Viitala, in Aleksi Salmenpera’s “Bad Family.”

The schedule also includes a panel addressing the challenges the new generation of European actors face in indie production.

The fest (Oct. 28-Nov. 5) has strengthened its ties with the European Union’s Media program, which supports the EU film and TV industries, and backs EFP.

During the fest, Media will launch its production guarantee fund, aimed at facilitating bank credit access for Euro producers.

Separately, the Eurimages Fund, which is complementary to Media, has announced a €30,000 ($41,500) development award for the best project presented in Rome’s New Cinema Network co-production mart.
