Turin commish bows pic fund

Italy preps for horror revival

The Film Commission of Turin is launching Italy’s first regional film fund and prepping to spawn an Italo slasher pic revival.

Turin and the Piedmont region at the foothills of the Alps are backing a four-pic package titled Italian Masters of Horror, for which talks are ongoing with veterans of the country’s cult B-movie circuit, though names are being kept under wraps.

Italo slasher package for theatrical distribution is being co-produced by state film entity Istituto Luce, producer Luciano Martino and the Turin commish.

Modeled on similar regional funds throughout Europe, the Turin fund will dispose of E6 million ($7.2 million) annually. The fund will provide up to 20% of a project’s budget, as long as shooting and post is done on Piedmont’s premises.

Headed by former Turin film fest topper Stefano Della Casa, the fund will be officially launched with a presser to be held in June in Rome’s Wax Museum.
