“As President of the Fondazione Cinema per Roma, I’m extremely happy and proud for the excellent nominations bestowed on Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea, which were presented at the Rome Film Fest 11th edition”, said Piera Detassis. “I wish the Italian nominee Fuocoammare an increasingly bright future, also for the strong values of hospitality and solidarity that it represents.”

“On the day when we celebrate the wonderful news of the Oscar nomination for Fuocoammare, that we will passionately support, and we congratulate Gianfranco Rosi, we are particularly honored and proud for the 28 nominations received by the films presented at the Rome Film Fest” said artistic director Antonio Monda, “in particular, I’m very happy for the 8 Oscar nominations for Moonlight, our opening film: Hollywood celebrated the poetry of a sincere and courageous work, which is full of pain, tenderness and hope. And I’m sincerely proud that in some main categories nominations were even four out of five. I feel obliged to thank all those who have worked on my side this year and believed in the most difficult bets: that’s how we celebrate cinema.”
