N.I.C.E. (New Italian Cinema Events), presented in cooperation with Italian Cultural Institute, Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and Tribeca Film Festival, showcases some of the most compelling works of emerging Italian directors whose diverse and unique voices have gained the interest of ever increasing audience. The seven shorts and seven feature-length films in competition offer a broad range of cinematic style and content, from comedies and drama to fact based tales reminding us that the Italian cinema is alive, well and thriving! Featuring some of the finest Italian actors, from stunning Laura Morante in The Ball (Liscio), heart-throbbing Raul Bova (Me, The Other) to actor and comedian Fabio Volo, N.I.C.E. brings to NY audiences not-to-be-missed movies. Enjoy a Qamp;A with the directors after each screening and vote for the best short and the best feature film and you will be entered in the raffle to win a great necklace (value 800$) by Angela Caputi.
