Turin, 13th November 2018. In theatre 3 of Cinema Massimo, Sergio Toffetti and Emanuela Martini inaugurate the 36th Torino Film Festival press conference. Beautiful Rita Hayworth’s dancing body, portrayed in the 1942 film You Were Never Lovelier by William A. Seiter, stands out in the background.
The picture we chose as the official logo for this edition – explains artistic director Martini – adequately represents the spirit of this festival, which has been involved in the research, support and promotion of the most innovative filmmakers in the global cinema industry since 1982. Therefore, freshness, energy and vitality are the keywords that led the curators’ selection.
