TS+FF 19 – Day 6

It’s the last day. But we still have many bullets to shoot. Especially on the screen, where bullets and explosions will abound.
From The Matrix to the new Zombieland, we are armed to the teeth, ready for some real action. Tonight we will also learn which movies will get the awards.
So, follow the white rabbit, it will lead you to the right place: the TS+FF!

h 11:00 – Politeama Rossetti
Red pill or blue pill?
Red pill: you will see reality for what it really is. That is, you will realize that since the first The Matrix twenty years have actually gone by (whaaaaaat?).
Blue pill: you will ignore how old you feel and will run to see the Wachowski sisters’ masterpiece in a theatre, again.

h 15:00 – Politeama Rossetti
The Prince’s Voyage

Life Achievement Asteroide Award to Phil Tippett + Phil Tippet: Mad Dreams and Monsters
Winner of the Academy Awards for The Return of the Jedi and Jurassic Park, Phil Tippett, visual effects wizard and “father” of legendary creatures like Jabba the Hutt and the Arachnids of Starship Troopers, will receive the Life Achievement Asteroide Award and we will see his portrait in the documentary by Poncet and Penso, who already presented their Le complexe de Frankenstein in Trieste a few years ago.

h 17:30 – Teatro Miela
Looking for Valentina – The World of Guido Crepax
Valentina is the black bob par excellence. Valentina is almost always naked. Valentina is thoughtful and a dreamer. Valentina is the girl everyone is in love with (maybe secretly, maybe not).
This movie, dream-like and restless just as she is, will take us on a journey through Crepax’s plates, where animation and story merge beyond fantasy.

h 20:30 – Politeama Rossetti
Awards Ceremony + Zombieland: Double Tap
Ten years later, the original cast of the “super cult” movie about the living dead is back to face yet more advanced and hungry undead.
The perfect conclusion to take advantage of the leftover adrenalin, still running through our veins after the winners have been revealed.

starting at 10:00 – Ridottino del Teatro Miela
Futurology meetings
Will climate change force us to become “space migrants” in search of new worlds to colonize?
Does hibernation really work as it does in movies, and would it really enable humans to travel enormous distances in space?
And, about movies, how is a science fiction short film made?
We know you are curious, but don’t think we are going to tell you now. You must go to the Futurology meetings to find the answers to all these questions!
Check the detailed programme

h 10:30 – from Casa del Cinema
Passeggiate cinematografiche – Set fantascientifici
A guided tour on the sets of the movies by Gabriele Salvatores, who has chosen Trieste as the backdrop of fantastic stories, paving the way for our city to become part of the imagery of international cinema. The Casa del Cinema Association will show you the many locations, and you will catch yourselves saying out loud: “Oh, but I do recognize this place!”
