Maratea's "Le Giornate del Cinema Lucano" to Showcase Regional Films

The complete lineup of Maratea's "Le Giornate del Cinema Lucano" was announced today at a press conference at the Port of Maratea. Mayor Domenico Cipolla along with Lucana Film Commission Director Paride Leporace, festival organizer Nicola Timpone and production administrator Elvira Marino announced the lineup to regional journalists.

The 2017 edition is chock full of locally-made films and national stars alike, such as Valerio Mastandrea, Valeria Golino, Carolina Crescentini, Sergio Castellitto, Margaret Mazzantini, Giovanni Anzaldo, Ornella Muti and Christian De Sica. 

For a Lucania film aficionado like me, the regional films are a special treat because they are quite hard to find, and this festival offers a rare opportunity to see many in one venue. Here is the complete list of films made in Basilicata that will be shown at  "Le Giornate del Cinema Lucano" ... along with the corresponding events and discussions..
