"Italy's Giffoni Experience, the unique film festival for children with 2,800 kids from 40 countries as jurors, is venturing into a new phase with $28 million now in place to build the Giffoni Multimedia Valley, which aims to become Southern Italy's largest production facility."
They basically opening a film musuem and will also double as a production studio. The facility's construction should be completed by 2013.
"While details of the Giffoni Multimedia Valley's production infrastructure are still sketchy, the fest facility will include two 500-seat screening rooms and an outdoor arena."
Um, that's kind of huge, actually. Five hundred for one theatre, wow!
"As for a few early titles for the 40th edition of the pre-eminent July 18-31 kiddie fest, Gubitosi said Giffoni has secured the Italian preem of Disney's live-action "The Sorcerer's Aprentice," "which may become the opener," and also a 10-minute promo-reel of Italy's first stereoscopic 3D toon, "Winx Club 3D: Magic Adventure," from Medusa."
A ten minute preview?! That is definitely interesting! Let's hope that there is news from this and that the preview becomes public.
As a disclaimer, the source is the same site that provided the erroneous citation about the FoxBox and the questionable picture. So the information above about the preview can be wrong.
