Antonio Monda, the artistic director of the Rome Film Festival, will stay in his position until 2020.
The Board of Directors of the Fondazione Cinema per Roma – composed of Piera Detassis (president), Roberto Cicutto, Laura Delli Colli, José R. Dosal, Lorenzo Tagliavanti – confirmed the news today (Oct 9).
A writer and university teacher, Monda was first appointed in February 2015.
He is set to oversee the festival’s 12th edition, which runs October 26-November 5 in 2017.
“I’m very honoured and deeply grateful to all those who have reconfirmed their trust in me, from the Founding Members to the Board of Directors of the Fondazione Cinema per Roma,” Monda declared.
“In the first triennium, we have worked hard to reimagine the Rome Film Fest and give it a clear-cut identity and a specific role in terms of content and programming. Our aim for the next three years will obviously be to outdo ourselves every time by bringing fresh ideas to the event without sacrificing its identity, which we have sought tirelessly but also passionately to create.”
