The Turin Film Festival (Nov 13-21), Italy's second most prominent film event, has unveiled its 21st line-up, which includes Italian-French actress Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's debut feature, It's Easier For A Camel and David Gordon Green's All The Real Girls.
Dedicated to emerging and cutting-edge international filmmakers, it will be the first festival to be directed by Giulia D'Agnolo Vallan and Roberto Turigliatto, who replace Stefano della Casa.
The festival will open with Bruni Tedeschi's It's Easier For A Camel, a comedy drama which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in May.
Among the 15 features competing for the $23,500 top prize are Cannes Directors' Fortnight film Deep Breath from Iran's Parviz Shahbazi, French directors Arnaud Larrieu and Jean-Marie Larrieu's debut feature, Un Homme, Un Vrai and Kanji Nakajima's Hako.
Receiving their world premiere in competition are Portuguese director Luis Fonseca's Antes Che O Tempo Mude and Joel Brisse's French picture The End Of The Animal Kingdom, as well as Neapolitan director Valerio Jalaongo's On My Skin.
Films screening out-of-competition include works-in-progress by cult Italian filmmakers Daniele Cipri and Franco Maresco (Return Of Cagliostro) and local underground filmmaker Tonino De Bernardi and Daniele Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub's film Il Ritorno del Figlio Prodigio.
The festival's popular Americana sidebar will feature David Gordon Greene's All The Real Girls, American Splendor by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman as well as Robert Aldrich's 1955 film Kiss Me Deadly and Anthony Mann's 1948 movie Raw Deal.
