Stunning Launch of Lavazza Italian Film Festival
The largest film festival outside of Italy, The World Loves Melbourne was invited to the launch of the Lavazza Italian Film Festival at the fabulous The Astor Theatre (Festival runs to October 9). We've worked out this is one of the premium events on the Melbourne calendar, with last year also a spectacular success.
The Opening Night film for 2016 is Paolo Genovese’s Perfect Strangers, the Best Film and Best Script winner at the 2016 David di Donatello Awards. Without giving the plot away, this is a high class film that keeps you captivated all the way through. The crowd was in bright spirits and immersing in the intrigue of the film. There was definitely a festival atmosphere at the launch.
Catering by DOC was first class including Bandini Prosecco NV DOC and appetisers on arrival. And then the catering went into overdrive for the afterparty.
We were also supplied with "Salumi boxes" with DOC goodies such as DOC roasted porchetta.
After party was stunning including Lavazza and Connoisseur "Affogato" Bar.
Also featuring at the Lavazza Italian Film Festival is the Australian-Italian feature The Space Between with Director Ruth Borgobello pictured above with Actress Maeve Dermondy.
The World Loves Melbourne highly recommends the Lavazza Italian Film Festival as a stunning event.
