From film school to Cannes Festival: EICAR alumnus shares his experience in master class lecture

Culture - 4 November 2016 - by Le Grand EICAR

IN THIS WEEK’S MASTER CLASS, WE HAD THE WONDERFUL PLEASURE OF WELCOMING ONE OF OUR OWN, A FORMER STUDENT AND PROFESSOR AT EICAR, ADRIANO VALERIO.

Director Adriano Valerio gave a very thorough and personal insight into his practice as a filmmaker. He spoke about the transition from being a student to becoming an award winning filmmaker, the ups and downs, the mistakes and the big breaks, like when he got a special mention at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 for his short 37°4S.

“I had a passion for cinema but I didn’t have the fire, now I have the fire!”

From graduating EICAR in 2004, making short films every two years, starting to write his first feature Banat – Il Viaggio to now directing the TV series Non Uccidere in Italy, Adriano has had a very interesting and inspiring career as a filmmaker.
