FILM INDEPENDENT ANNOUNCES PREMIERE OF WOODY ALLENíS TO ROME WITH LOVE

Apr 12, 2012

Today the Los Angeles Film Festival, in conjunction with Presenting Media Sponsor the Los Angeles Times and Host Partner L.A. LIVE, announced the North American Premiere of Woody Allenís To Rome With Love as the opening night film for the 2012 Festival. The Festival is widely recognized as a world-class event, showcasing the best in new American and international cinema, and is produced by Film Independent, the non-profit arts organization that also produces the Spirit Awards. The 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival will screen a diverse slate of over 200 feature films, shorts, and music videos, representing more than 30 countries, along with signature programs such as the Filmmaker Retreat, Ford Amphitheater Outdoor Screenings, Poolside Chats, Coffee Talks, Music Events and more.   

 

Written and directed by Woody Allen, To Rome With Love is a story about a number of people in Italy ó some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors ó and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into. The film stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penťlope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page, and is produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum. To Rome With Love is being released by Sony Pictures Classics on June 22, 2012.

 

ďI canít think of a better way to kick off this yearís festival than with the original independent filmmaker himself, Woody Allen. Itís a true honor for Los Angeles to host the North American premiere of To Rome With Love,Ē said Festival Director Stephanie Allain.

 

ďWe are thrilled to bring Woody Allen and the US premiere of his new film To Rome With Love at the LA Film Fest,Ē said SPCís Co-President Tom Bernard. ďThe Festival is a premiere showcase for films and we couldnít be more excited that Stephanie and her team have chosen us to open the Festival.Ē

 

"I've always wanted to make a film in Rome. It's obviously one of the great cities of the world, and when you make a film in a foreign city you get a chance to spend several months there, so shooting in Rome gave me and my family an opportunity to really enjoy a city I love in a way that I don't usually get to. I wrote the film especially for Rome because over the years and my many visits there little ideas occurred to me, and I was able to utilize those ideas to comic advantage, romantic advantage, combined with the visual beauty of Rome," said Woody Allen.

 

Returning to downtown Los Angeles, with its central hub at L.A. LIVE, the Festival will run from Thursday, June 14 to Sunday, June 24. Now in its eighteenth year, the Festival provides the movie-loving public with access to critically acclaimed filmmakers, film industry professionals, and emerging talent from around the world.
