Tourism and films in Ischia

  • 16.07.2011

Using In Wallonia coal and steel have been replaced by the Gold of two Palms as title, Philippe Reynaert, the director of Wallimage, presented the Walloon success story in international co-productions. His essay ended with details on the operation around Nothing to Declare, and the opening of the homonymous Museum as well as its impact on the Chimay region. Marc Bossaert, in charge of the Hainaut film commission, has impressed the numerous Italian professionals present at the colloquium by presenting his remarkable CinéVaggio, photo edits where he superposes film stills with shots of the locations, made by himself. Sort of a “post-location scouting” work, and quite an invitation to revisit the city which hosted the shoot.
But the presence of the Belgian delegation was not limited to the Incontri internazionali sul Cineturismo, since the festival goers were also able to discover Hitler à Hollywood in the official competition, a film made by Frédéric Sojcher and supported by Wallimage/Bruxellimage. Even better, it won the Award for Best Photography, which is particularly audacious and rewarding, since HH was entirely filmed with … a photo camera!
