San Diego Italian Film Festival

October 29th, 2020

 

This year has marked our fifth annual partnership with the San Diego Italian Film Festival. In celebration of this milestone, Little Fish Comic Book Studio played host to a pair of special visits: Diana Agostini (Executive Director, SDIFF) and Antonio Iannatto (Artistic Director, SDIFF). Both joined us via Zoom, Diana on September 26th and Antonio on October 1st, to talk about Italian cinema and Italian comics ("fumetti"), respectively.

 

For the past 12 years, the San Diego Italian Film Festival has used the art of film to educate, provoke thought, stimulate conversation, and share stories. Their main tool is Italian cinema, and through the lens of Italian culture, they value and savor cultural differences through sharing.

The film selection for this year is Mio fratello rincorre i dinosauri ["My Brother Chases Dinosaurs"]. Based off a true story, when young Jack becomes a big brother, he’s told that his new baby brother, Gio, is a “special” child. After expecting having a superhero for a brother, Jack eventually learns that “special” means Down Syndrome. When Jack chooses to hide his brother’s very existence from his new friends and the girl he likes, it isn’t long before the truth comes out, and that Jack realizes Gio’s energy and vitality can change the world, just like a real superhero.

 

As always, Little Fish’s students will be creating posters inspired by this year’s chosen film. The posters be on display on the Film Festival’s website. A special panel was produced with the Film Festival prior to the event. Please check out the artwork created by our students below!
