WICIP, the first project for the international promotion of Italian cinema written, produced and directed by women, is officially launched. It includes the presentation of five films that are also available in versions accessible to the deaf and to the blind. WICIP was selected by the Italian Ministry of Culture as one of its Special Projects and has been conceived by Angela Prudenzi and Federico Spoletti. It is produced by L’Age d’Or in collaboration with Sub-ti Access. The project also promotes Italian women’s cinema in the academic world, with events aimed at students from various universities and film schools.
New York University’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, located at 24 West 12th Street, houses the Department of Italian Studies and hosts almost 100 events a year relating to Italian culture, from lectures to concerts, from round tables to film screenings.
