ALFONSO CUARÓN wins the first FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL SPECIAL AWARD

The Directors of the Italian Festival focused on special effects and new technologies applied to cinema honor the author of Gravity for the outstanding Technical and Poetical achievements reached.

For the 15th consecutive year Future Film Festival renovates its partecipation to the Venice Film Festival with an important new prize: in addition to the traditional Digital Award (assigned by a jury of critics and journalists to the best use of animation and special effects in a movie) the FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL SPECIAL AWARD makes its debut: with this brand new award, FFF directors Giulietta Fara and Oscar Cosulich recommend movies or authors which achieve emblematics results.

Therefore, it is not a surprise that the first edition of the award goes to Alfonso Cuarón for the outstanding technical and poetical achievements reached in his new film, Gravity.

“We are proud that the first winner of the FFF Special Award is Alfonso Cuarón – said Giulietta Fara and Oscar Cosulich -, a filmaker who already made an original and not predictable use of special effects in movies like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men and now author, with Gravity, of a great film that confirms Cuarón as one of the most important contemporary directors. With this movie he brings back science fiction to excellent levels of quality, thanks to the stereoscopic technology used at its highest potential.”

The prize will be given to Alfonso Cuarón on Thursday, August 29th at 5 P.M. in Ca’ Giustinian, Venice, Italy.

We are also proud to announce that the 16th edition of Future Film Festival will be held in Bologna, Italy, from April 1st to 6th, 2014.
