Spotlight on SHOOTING STARS at International Rome Film Festival

With the aim of increasing the awareness of European films and talent in Italy, European Film Promotion (EFP) will be bringing three SHOOTING STARS 2010 to the International Rome Film Festival (October 28 - November 5) for the first time. Following the showcase at the Berlin International Film Festival, the selected three emerging actors will present their recent films at Italy's glittering cinematographic feast. The Italian SHOOTING STAR Michele Riondino will be seen in Ten Winters by Valerio Mieli, Zrinka Cvitesić from Croatia will be in Rome with her film On The Path by Jasmila Zbanić and Pihla Viitala from Finland will be attending with Bad Family by Aleksi Salmenperä. The presentation of SHOOTING STARS in Rome is being supported financially by the MEDIA Programme of the EU. "We believe in the future of emerging actors. That's why Rome opens a big window onto bright new hopes each year", says Roberto Cicutto, director of The Business Street at the International Rome Film Festival.
