Lacco Ameno (July 7) - Vanessa Incontrada and Neri Marcorè have been selected to receive Ischia Newcomer Awards for the film Cuore Altrove. The honors will be presented Thursday, July 17 at the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest that runs July 13-18 on Ischia, the island off Naples.

The musical work of these two star pupils of Antonio Avati was also recognized at the Cannes Film Festival this spring. The two are some of the new talent of European cinema that will be celebrated at the festival.

The event is co-produced by the Luce Institute and the International Academy of Art of Ischia. Giancarlo Carriero, president of the Academy, lauded the �high moral values� promoted in the film and its music. Avati has had an extraordinary career as a producer.

At its opening ceremony July 13, the festival will bestow a Legend Prize on Stefania Sandrelli for her more than 40 years of success in film and on television.

A principal focus of the festival will be Bollywood, the rising cinema community in Bombay, India. Indian director Shekhar Kapur, Indian actor Kabir Bedi and numerous other Indian film leaders will attend. The Indian and Italian cinema industries recently signed a co-production agreement.

The Luce Institute will produce discussion programs on strategies for European co-productions and on new digital resources for the Italian film industry.

The festival also will include previews, galas, conventions and other prize awards. The event is in part intended to recapture the Ischia glory years of the 1950s through 1970s, when producer and publisher Angelo Rizzoli led film production on the island and many notables from the cinema and political worlds visited regularly. Some prizes are being awarded in honor of Rizzoli.

Naples (June 18) - U.K. director Peter Greenaway will be awarded an Angelo Rizzoli e Award July 13 at the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest for his work in getting eight European countries to cooperate in the making of the film Le Tulse Luper Suitcases: The Moab Story.

The Italian producers constituting the jury for the Rizzoli Prizes selected Greenaway for the film that had been introduced at the Naples Film Festival and that has many technical innovations. It will be distributed in Italy in September.

The film also was screened at Cannes, where it was �revolutionary in contrast to its competitors, but perhaps it was too brave to gain the Golden Palm or other acknowledgement,� said Luciano Sovena, general executive manager of the Istituto Luce, a co-producer of the Ischia festival.

The Rizzoli jury that selected Greenaway for the producer award was composed of Aurelio De Laurentis, Riccardo Tozzi, Domenico Procacci, Giancarlo Leone, Giampaolo Letta and Tilde Corsi, and was presided over by Marina Cicogna, past president of Italia Cinema, and Nicola Carraro, grandson of the famed publisher and producer for whom the prize is named.

Greenaway, noting that films today are seen 75 per cent on television, 20 per cent on DVD and only 5 per cent in the theater, is working on new digital technologies for internet and DVD distribution that he hopes to show at the Venice Film Festival.
