1977. The Festival turns 15
The scene picture is taken from the Soviet film “Begstvo mistera Mak-kinli”, directed by Michail Scheitzer, that is awarded the jury special award for the soundtrack.
Krsto Papic’s “Izbavitelj”, produced by Jadran Film, a croatian film company, is awarded the Asteroide d’oro.
One of the side events of the 15th edition is Fantascena, an international convention directed by Alberto Farassino about studies on fantastic elements in films and relation between films and psychanalysis. In relation to this event, there is also an exhibition curated by Sergio Germani.
As regards the retrospective exhibitions, Fant’America, an exhibition dedicated to the filmmaker Tod Browning and the actor Lon Chaney, takes place in Castle of San Giusto and in Cinema Fenice. This is the first chapter of an investigation on the sources of fantastic American cinema. This event, just like Fant’Italia, is the product of collaboration with La Cappella Underground.
