Premiere on the opening day ‘Under the Amalfi Sun’ by Martina Pastori (on Netflix from 13 July). The strong link between the festival and the US platform is confirmed (three films on the bill, there is also ‘Tick, Tick … Boom!’ With Andrew Garfield): just think that Ted Sarandos presented Netflix for the first time in Italy seven years ago at the Global guest of the founder and producer of the event Pascal Vicedomini.

Among the most anticipated previews “Infinite Storm” by Malgorzata Szumowska with Naomi Watts produced by Trudie Styler’s Maven Screen Media and distributed by Sony; “On Our Way” directed by young director Sophie Lane Curtis with Micheal Richardson. World premiere for Marcus Stokes’ State of Consciousness with Emily Hirsh distributed in Italy by RS Productions; Sepideh Mirhosseini’s Iranian “Son of Man” addresses the LGBT issue. And still in European preview “Here. Is. Better.” Emmy winner Jack Youngelson on the United States Department of Veterans Affairs; “My Dead Dad” by Fabio Frey, “Muthayya” by Bhaskhar Maurya.
