Italy’s Apulia bows Frontiere fest

"Sunset Limited" will have its Euro preem at Frontiere.

Italy’s Puglia region, which is becoming a film and TV production hotspot, is launching a multidisciplinary event, called Frontiere, where HBO’s “The Sunset Limited,” helmed by Tommy Lee Jones, will have its European fest preem.

“The Sunset Limited,” an adapation of the Cormac McCarthy play, will screen at the nascent fest before going out in Italy on Sky Italia.

Film, literature, visual arts, theater and journalism will all be featured in Frontiere, which aims to stimulate the local arts scene as part of the region’s comprehensive approach to boosting cinema in the region, said film critic Oscar Iarussi. He heads both Frontiere and the 3-year-old Apulia Film Commission.

The most recent feature film shot in Apulia, which is located on the heel of the Italo boot, is Ermanno Olmi’s immigration “The Cardboard Village” which screened in Venice out of competition.
