The Names of the Main Creators of the Film Trilogy Written and Directed by Bruno Pischiutta and Produced by Daria Trifu Are Emerging

The composition and production of the original score will be entrusted to American maestro Jay Jourden, and the set design to Italian art director Davide De Stefano.

June 15, 2022 — Hollywood, California — Global Film Studio announced today that American maestro Jay Jourden will compose and produce the original score, and multi-award winner Italian art director Davide De Stefano will do the set design for the company’s upcoming trilogy of sequential feature films written and directed by Bruno Pischiutta and produced by Daria Trifu.

“The making of an important film is always the result of teamwork. I am very lucky in this regard,” says Bruno Pischiutta, “because the members of my team are world-class and acclaimed artists.

It is normal that the director’s interest, in an important film such as this one that is about love relationships, is focused on the main action, the performance of the actors and the chemistry that must exist between the various characters. The atmosphere, the emotions of the actors and the different moments of the action are enhanced by the music, while the environment in which everything takes place is created by the set design. With maestro Jourden in charge of the music, and Davide De Stefano creating the ambient, I feel completely secure.”

Jay Jourden, known as “Blue Jay”, is an esteemed producer and musical artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He heads the music department of Global Film Studio and, with his team of award-winning musicians, Jay is composing and producing the music scores for the company’s films.

Blue Jay works with an all-star, world-class team out of Storm Music Studio in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Industry superstar Denny Leroux, who is known for working with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Bill Murray and Bo Diddley, leads the group that comprises iconic musicians such as Emmy Award Winner Jeff Alford (Jacksonville Symphony), drummer Mike Maple (The Judds), famed bassist Tommy Gilstrap (Tom Petty), guitarist James Hogan (Grammy Winner Paul Williams, Lee Ritenour and Wynonna Judd), pianist Kenny Levine (Bill Murray), and electric guitar player Johnny “The Claw” Piantadosi (Southside Johnny).

Margo Buccini and Jay Jourden perform at the Ormond Beach Live Concert in 2019.

Jay has just released an album entitled We Need To Know (There’s Happiness In Our World); its cover song, by the same title, is a hit on Spotify and other music platforms. Reminiscent of We Are The World, the song is written, arranged, and produced by Jay who also sings lead vocals alongside six other acclaimed vocalists: Kathryn Shipley, Dee Rock, Jackson Snelling, Wendy K, Revele, and Greg Roberts. Award winning fine-artist Margo Buccini is the designer of the band’s CD covers, and is the background vocalist on the album.

We Need To Know is one of the songs slated to be part of the foundation of the soundtrack for Global Film Studio’s film trilogy.

Davide De Stefano is an exceptionally talented and experienced film set designer who received numerous international awards. Davide has worked in locations worldwide including India, Morocco, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Europe and Turkey. He has experience in various film genres such as drama, thriller, noir and period.

De Stefano worked with many distinguished directors such as Carlo Lizzani, Pupi Avati, Francesca Archibugi, Dario Argento, Roberto Faenza, Maurizio Nichetti, Lamberto Bava, Ricky Tognazzi, Paolo Virzì, Peter Greenaway, Catherine Hardwicke, Kim Manners, Greg Yaitanes, John Gray, Zeke Pinheiro, Mark Roemmich, Nana Obiri and Eric Howell.

Bruno Pischiutta Extends SPA’s Screenplay to a Trilogy of Sequential Feature Films that Sets, With Powerful Artistic Force, the Cultural Climax of the Conflict Over Free Speech

British actress and dancer Stephanie Tripp will star in the trilogy written and directed by Bruno Pischiutta and produced by Daria Trifu.


May 4, 2022 – Hollywood, California – In the calm and relaxed atmosphere of a small cocktail party, director Bruno Pischiutta told members of his entourage and a few close friends that he has decided to expand the story of the film “Spa” into a trilogy consisting of feature films that follow a sequential storyline.

“I want to tell,” said Pischiutta, “one of the best stories Hollywood has ever brought to the screen, an extremely popular story that will also be emblematic of contemporary human relationships and will be a turning point, a milestone, in defining the cultural conflict over free speech. To achieve this, I need nearly five hours of screen time, because the standard length of a single film would be significantly limiting.” Pischiutta has been writing the script for more than a year, and expects to complete it by the end of the summer.

Actress Stephanie Tripp

British actress and dancer Stephanie Tripp will star in the three films. The cast consists of approximately 50 international English-speaking actors, most of whom are members of Global Film Studio’s talent agency, the Global Film Actors Agency.

In an earlier statement by Pischiutta on the topicality of the subject, the author said, “Love and sexual relationships are more complicated today than ever before. They are often interracial, and sometimes involve LGBT characters in a kaleidoscope of different nationalities, traditions, and ways. Love relationships are not caused and motivated by logic but by passion, and the power of passion gives them life and governs them in a constant fluctuating variation that is always interesting and often surprising.”

The film will be distributed worldwide by globalcinema.online, Global Film Studio’s paid streaming service for non-violent films. The streaming channel expects one to two million viewers to watch the film in its first weekend of release.

Actor Stavros Parcharidis and Actress Stella Hinsen Sign Contract of Representation With Global Film Actors Agency

In tune with the action taken by Elon Musk in the corporate world, Bruno Pischiutta takes a stand on free speech in the film world with the motion picture “Spa”.


April 15, 2022 – Hollywood, California – Veteran Greek actor Stavros Parcharidis and emerging young actress Stella Hinsen will join Greta Goldling, Stephanie Tripp, Camilla Roman, transgender Filipino actress Miss Seven, Jack Roper, wrestler Joe Legend, and two black actors, Martin Valentine from the UK and Shaquille Mathurin from the USA, in the cast of the upcoming feature film “Spa” (working title), produced by Daria Trifu, written and directed by Bruno Pischiutta.

Stavros Parcharidis is a Greek actor, writer and director who is working in film and theater since 1986.

In 2004, Parcharidis directed the film “Poreia” (On the Road) that was nominated for the Best Short Film award at the Cannes Film Festival by Kodak. He also directed and starred in “Favorite Town” (2014) that received a nomination for Best Actor at the Avant Premiere Festival in Athens.

As an actor, he has collaborated with all major television channels in Greece and worked in series such as “Comfuzio”, “Aman”, “Reportage Without Borders”, as well as in major film productions such as “It’s a Long Road” by Pantelis Voulgaris, “The Hunt of the Hare” by Nikos Vezyrgiannis, and “The Flower of the Lake” by Stamatis Tsarouchas.

In 1992, he founded the Maiotron Theater Company in Thessaloniki where he continues to serve as manager and art director. Since 1996, he is heading several theater centers in various municipalities of Greece where he directs and teaches theater.​

Daria Trifu met Stavros in Greece. “When we met, a few years back, he showed me a film he had made. I was impressed by his realistic interpretation that reminded me of memorable performances realized by great actors in Fellini films. Stavros thrives in roles that are highly demanding on both body and mind. His latest work will soon be seen in the Yannis Aivazis directed drama ‘Abyss In’, a film he wrote and stars in, that tackles the degenerating human condition of a man who is slowly loosing his mind. Stavros and I are good friends today, and I feel privileged to make my screen debut alongside him, and under Bruno Pischiutta’s masterful direction in ‘Spa’.”

Stella Hinsen loves being in front of the camera, has an unlimited passion for acting, and is determined to become a movie star. In 2022, Stella graduated from the International Film Workshops of Pischiutta; there, she acquired the knowledge necessary to a professional actor.

“It is a real pleasure to mentor Stella,” says Bruno Pischiutta. “Very mature and extremely intelligent, she loves performing and she possesses rare qualities that allow her to play exceptionally well, as she demonstrated during the Workshops, in various roles and with a wide range of possibilities. She can be believable in the part of a young victim who elicits pity, and in darker, more diverse roles. Stella is a special actress, and has many talents and inclinations that can undoubtedly lead her to the stardom she so desires.”

“Spa” is Pischiutta’s most anticipated work, and is expected to be his greatest directorial performance since “Punctured Hope”, the critically acclaimed feature on women’s genital mutilation, shot in Africa and qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards® in 2010. 

“Spa”, a non-violent film, will have a sexual content that accentuates its dramatic ending and that will make this main stream movie very popular. The picture will be filmed partly in London and partly in a touristic resort located by the Aegean Sea in Greece.

The plot contains a very important element that will be kept secret until the film’s release. The narrative follows several female characters and love stories that are typical in today’s dating scene. The extreme originality of the ‘secret element’ promises to move the viewers’ attention and to create an irresistible point of attraction.

There will be two ways to understand the film: the simplest one will be to follow the love affairs where very particular morals can be found, but there will also be a much more sophisticated way of reading the plot that underlines the need for easier communication and freedom of speech. 

“Spa” has the ingredients to become a landmark in movie history because, like Francis Ford Coppola, Pischiutta is not afraid of risk. In this film, Pischiutta makes an artistic directorial choice with respect to the casting by organizing a fabulous and priceless ensemble of actors that brings back memories of the one in Dennis Hopper’s “Easy Rider.”

Bruno Pischiutta says: “Love and sexual relationships are today more complicated than ever. They are often interracial, and sometimes they involve LGBT characters in a kaleidoscope of different nationalities, traditions and ways. Love relationships are not caused and motivated by logic but by passion, and the strength of passion gives them life and rules them in a constant fluctuating variation that is always interesting and often surprising.”

The film will be released worldwide by globalcinema.online, Global Film Studio’s pay-per-view streaming service for non-violent films. The streaming channel expects that one to two million viewers will watch the film in its first weekend of release.

Globalcinema.online Makes News In New York!

I like to thank New York Journalist Anthony Paradiso for the wonderful article he wrote about our streaming channel, globalcinema.online. The article is featured in the June issue of the WestView News magazine of West Village New York City.  

The WestView News is a newspaper based in the West Village of Manhattan, New York, New York. It is one of the very few magazines that is still available in print. The WestView News was founded in 2003. Its CEO is George Capsis.

Global Cinema, the Newest Streaming Channel, Acquires The Lost Village  

By Anthony Paradiso

My father, Roger Paradiso, made an award-winning film called The Lost Village, that premiered at Cinema Village in 2018. The film appears on the newest streaming platform on the block, Global Cinema Online. Another film of Roger’s, The Queen of Camelot, appeared in the “Global Non-violent Film Festival,” which only accepts documentaries and feature films that do not contain violence. This film, about Jackie Kennedy and her account of the JFK “Camelot” era, also won an award. It will also be available in June on the Global Cinema Online streaming platform.

After Roger won the Global Nonviolent Film Festival award, he got to know Bruno and Daria who run the festival and also Global Cinema Online. He likes them and what they are doing very much. He calls Global Cinema Online “the filmmaker’s streamer.” In the center of their home page (globalcinema.online) you will see “Explore Our Catalogue.” Clicking on this will lead to a selection of films from Europe, North America, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia.

If you would like to watch movies on Global Cinema Online, the price for renting a film begins at $1.99. One-time purchases of feature-length films start at $13.99; films that are under 40 minutes long start at $7.99. You can also create a profile, to receive email updates on the latest films and also have a record of your purchases. The website is easy to use and I recommend that you check it out at http://www.globalcinema.online.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Daria Trifu, the executive producer and president of Global Film Studio, and Bruno Pischiutta, film director, and chairman of the board of Global Film Studio.

Why are you, Daria, and Bruno, interested in a movie about Greenwich Village called The Lost Village by Roger Paradiso?

Roger first submitted The Lost Village to our festival, the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and our selection committee held it in high regard. The film has the proper cinematic quality to be included in the festival, and its subject is extremely important for the viewers because Greenwich Village is one of the many souls of New York City and is not spoken about enough. The historic perspective in which it is written is also very interesting because it depicts an important moment of transition for the Village, and shows its strength and weakness. Roger Paradiso is a director who was already awarded at our festival and is known by our viewers. The Lost Village in an important part of Roger’s filmography.

Since the film was shown originally, just before the pandemic, we have seen huge changes in Greenwich Village. What has changed in your film business, both as a film festival and now as a streamer online?

The pandemic presents an enormous difficulty for producing films. In particular, we make English-speaking films, but the set for our next movie is located in Greece. Our actors are primarily from the USA and the UK. The production entails that cast and crew have to travel. During the pandemic, international travel has been very difficult and, in some cases, even impossible. Furthermore, the danger of putting the cast and crew on the set together could have created a contagious situation where Covid could have been spread. Considering those two big difficulties we decided to wait, and to start production when the pandemic will be under control and international travel will be easier. This created a one-year window that gave us the opportunity to take care and realize another one of our projects that had been planned from some time; it was time to make the streaming channel Global Cinema Online a reality.

Everything went well, and we arrived to launch Global Cinema Online this past April. This pay-per-view streaming channel is available worldwide and, in keeping with our company’s brand, it offers viewers nonviolent visual content. The web address is http://www.globalcinema.online.

The primary source of our content is the Global Nonviolent Film Festival (in business for ten years), where we have direct access to films that don’t contain gratuitous violence and are rich in quality and topical importance. Global Cinema Online fills a void in the field of video streaming services and offers the public films that give them the opportunity to learn more and to open their mental horizon. From now on, every film selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will receive a proposal of worldwide distribution, with very favorable financial terms, through Global Cinema Online. We believe that our formula is right and that it makes for a win-win situation for all parties involved: the public, the filmmakers, and our company.

How do you think streaming will affect movie theaters?

 It is already a fact that streaming is taking a part of the theater audience. This is happening for several reasons: a lot of viewers prefer to watch a film in the privacy of their home, and they often do binge-watching, something that is not possible in the cinema. It is a new phenomenon that the movie industry has to acknowledge. It is also, however, another source of distribution and income for production companies and filmmakers that is to be regarded with much interest.

What kind of market do you see your new Global Cinema Online fitting into, with all the big streamers like Netflix and smaller streamers like IFC, Ovid, Criterion Channel, Sundance etc.?

We are not looking to fit in, we are looking to stand out! The concept of gratuitous sex and violence has always been part of a legend that these two elements are the most profitable in film production. It is just a legend because the numbers tell us that the films that make more money are films for the entire family, and sex and violence are just some sort of specialty elements.

When, just recently, Netflix showcased the film Cuties, that has sexual content that’s on the edge, more than 100,000 people left Netflix. They probably did so, also, because some of them did not want their kids to be exposed to this film in their households. This clearly tells us that there is a big necessity for the viewers to look for and find streaming channels that have the niche that they like. We believe that in every country there is a category of people who wish to see films without gratuitous violence.

How can Villagers who love movies find you on the internet, and how much does it cost?

It is simple, and our site is very user-friendly. Viewers from all over the world, without restrictions, can find us on the web at http://www.globalcinema.online. The site is accessible on all computers and mobile devices connected to the internet. In addition to the custom categories and genres, the films are organized by continent: European Cinema, North American Cinema, Asian Cinema, South American Cinema, African Cinema, and Australian Cinema. 

Our channel works on a pay-per-view basis where the viewers have the possibility to choose the films they want to watch and pay for them in either of two ways: renting a title will give them 24 hours time to watch it, while buying a title will give them an unlimited time to watch it as long as the film is on our channel. Right now, our prices range from $1.99 to $13.99.

A Different Way to Awards & Distribution

I believe that our formula is right, and that it makes for a win-win situation for all parties involved: the public, the filmmakers, and our company”, says Film Producer Daria Trifu.

“Global Cinema Online is on the right path. The channel will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. A lot of people will love the movies we show will watch our films”, says Film Director Bruno Pischiutta.


Global Nonviolent Film Festival is the most important and renown festival of nonviolent films in the world.

The Festival is in business from 10 years, it is recognised worldwide, and it offers the best virtual platform to showcase films, documentaries and music videos to distributors, media executives, and the general public, while competing for awards and recognition!

The Making of Global Cinema Online: An Achievement to Be Proud Of

By Bruno Pischiutta

April 11, 2021

In my long life, I have been privileged and lucky to reach several achievements: some of my performances and movies got important awards and I had the opportunity to work often with excellent colleagues and artists. What I did in the film industry gave me great satisfactions; most of it was regarding the writing of screenplays, the making of films and film companies. Now, in this very bad period of pandemic, a time when it is almost impossible to produce films and have a normal working activity, I’ve been very lucky again for achieving something that, just a short time ago, was highly improbable: I am talking about Global Cinema Online, an OTT (Over The Top) media streaming channel that, for the first time changes ways and terms used in the film industry and gives some new and necessary choices to viewers and filmmakers everywhere.

Before analyzing certain aspects of Global Cinema Online, I wish to point out that my role in the making of this OTT streaming channel for films was a small one, in the same way that my role in creating the Global Nonviolent Film Festival – the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world – was a small one too: it is true that Daria Trifu and I had the idea to create the Festival and the Global Cinema Online streaming channel, but Daria is the real creator and operator of both these two divisions of our company. 

I’m the chairman of Global Film Studio and Daria is the president of the company. My principal jobs are deciding what products we put in production and the actors we contract with our Agency, as well as arranging the financing for the company. Besides that, I write most of the screenplays and I direct most of the films we make. Daria’s jobs are taking care of all what is necessary from the administrative point of view to run the company. She produces and executive produce most of our film products, designs, writes (most of the content), creates and publishes the annual arts, entertainment and business magazine DARIA! (Established in 2005), runs the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and now runs Global Cinema Online, this new OTT streaming pay-per-view channel for nonviolent films.

Since the Covid time started – in March of last year – and until today, I worked in film financing and in preparing our next productions; Daria worked on the making of Global Cinema Online, we both worked on DARIA! magazine, and on organizing and hosting the Festival that will celebrate its 10th annual edition from September 23 to October 3 this year. In this period, I was privileged to be able to follow, day by day, Daria’s difficult work in making the streaming channel, and to consult her on a continuous basis about the choices and decisions that were essential in bringing Global Cinema Online to reality. 

Global Cinema Online is user friendly and the films are organized by continent: European Cinema, North American Cinema, Asian Cinema, South American Cinema, African Cinema, and Australian Cinema.

I’m proud to announce that, beginning on April 15, the Global Cinema Online movie channel will go live at this link:

globalcinema.online

For the first time in the history of the world’s film industry, two facts become a reality:

  • It is common knowledge that many people, especially in Canada and in Europe, are viewing less and less films because the catalogs of the existing streaming services contain many films with gratuitous violence, low quality films and films that don’t provoke thought but just empty entertainment. Starting on April 15, English speaking viewers in all corners of the world will be able – for the first time – to choose films, documentaries, animation films, docudramas, TV series, music videos and films made by women from a catalog of high quality nonviolent products. As a matter of fact, these films were previously selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, they don’t contain gratuitous violence, and they have the quality and topical importance required at our Festival;
  • From now on, every film that will be selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will be proposed worldwide distribution with very favorable financial terms trough our streaming pay-per-view channel Global Cinema Online.

I’m proud of the little role I played in making Global Cinema Online a reality, and we all should be very grateful to Daria Trifu for this achievement, because the two facts above are game changers.

The first fact betters the experience of the intelligent viewers who wish to see films that give them something from an emotional point of view, or that give them possibilities to know more and to open their mental horizon. 

The films shown on Global Cinema Online may have acts of violence, if they are essential to the plot. What we are against is the gratuitous violence in film, not because we believe that everybody who watches a violent film will commit some act of violence in real life, but we have to think that, when a violent film is seen by a multitude of people, there can be some individuals who are particularly influenceable and already on the edge. It is a known fact that, when a big TV Network airs a film about suicide, the number of real suicides increases. The same of what we think about violence we think about sensuality and scenes with sexual content. The films shown on Global Cinema Online can contain sensual scenes and can deal with a subject on the edge, but every scene in the film, every visual part should be necessary to the plot, nothing should be there for commercial purposes only.

The second fact is extremely new in the industry and a big help for the filmmakers; it makes it more simple for filmmakers to become universally recognized and financially independent. If their film is selected at our Festival – the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, it will receive a non-exclusive and profitable proposal of worldwide distribution through Global Cinema Online.

I believe that Global Cinema Online is on the right path in the present time. The channel will be born in few days and it will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. I believe that a lot of people will love the movies we show and a lot of viewers will watch our films. I’m proud of this; even if my role in the making of Global Cinema Online was small, I believe that the fact that I cooperated in bringing it live is one of the biggest achievement of my life.

My Next Film SPA, the Writing Process, the Title, and the Recent Murders at Several Massage Parlors In Atlanta

The Writing Process

I’m now in the process of writing the screenplay of a new film; the Working Title of the film is SPA. 

Ernest Hemingway once suggested: “Write drunk and edit sober…” He was talking about writing novels, not screenplays, but the rule may very well apply to the telling of every story. Screenplay writers know that their product may be obtained using several writing processes that are very different from one another and that, at the end, the logic that they will choose for writing the story will be unconsciously used by the viewers to get the story’s concepts and to gain some sort of personal experience and emotional background.

I don’t want, here, to give the full description of the process that I follow in writing this specific screenplay. I’ll just give some elements of the way I’m going with. I have to premise that I’m approaching the writing of the screenplay SPA as the first step in making a masterpiece movie; I believe that SPA can be a masterpiece, and one of the most watched feature films of next year.

On my desktop, some notes are present and a calculator is always in view, together with the pictures of some actors. No search for possible characters’ names has been done yet because, in the fist draft of the screenplay, I use the real names of the actors I picture playing the principal parts. This is why I have the pictures of the actors on my desktop; the lines to be read by the characters should not only be proper, they should also be absolutely credible when performed by a specific actor.

In other words, story and dialog should be self-generated through the fantastic situation my mind is imagining, but they have to be kept in a reality because these characters will only move and speak in ways that belong to them.

The Title

Like every writer, I like that my new script has a name; it is very helpful for me to be able to call my work-in-progress by a name, a title, even in the initial phase. 

I realize that all of the above may sound confusing. It is not easy to fully penetrate what happens at this point. If I want to be in masterpiece territory, my mind cannot be limited by a simple logic or some commercial considerations. I am working in a full phantasy with passionate elements almost inexistent in reality; the masterpiece price is that big part of what is created is generated by the situation that the mind establishes every day, during the writing process. I know little about the story now, I just have some elements that can change in the process, this is the reason why the file can only have a Working Title, a temporary, a possible title that can be changed if the process will reveal major importance in other aspects of the story.

I choose SPA as Working Title for this film because one of the principal locations of several scenes will be the Spa connected with a gym at a Greek resort. I didn’t think to the dual meaning that the word SPA may have in today’s America. When I think to a Spa I think (it is all I know) to a very fancy and sophisticated place that can be found close to high class gyms and/or in most Five-Star Hotels. I refer to a place where women and men can have massages, make-up and other similar services, often related to water.

The Recent Murders at Atlanta “Spa” 

As a matter of fact, the term Spa comes from latin: Sanus Per Aquam (Latin: health through water), and it is commonly claimed that the word is an acronym of various Latin phrases, such as salus per aquam or sanitas per aquam, meaning “health through water”.

Recently, watching on TV the story of a sex maniac who killed a number of women in several Massage Parlors in Atlanta, I was very unpleasantly surprised to discover that in USA many Massage Parlors use the acronym SPA in the legal name of their business so that sometimes these places, that host cheap prostitution, are called just Spa. 

I like to state that similar places have nothing to do with the screenplay I am writing; there will be some scenes in the film that will be located in a particular Massage Parlor. That place, both in the screenplay and in the film, will be called Massage Parlor, nothing to do with SPA.

Maybe, when the screenplay will be completed, the title will change; it’s too soon to know this for certain. It happens a lot of times, this is why the initial title is called Working Title. The murders and the dual meaning of the word will probably be a principal cause for the change, together with other considerations of artistic and commercial nature. 

Emerging British Actress Stephanie Tripp Signs Contract of Representation With Global Film Actors Agency

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HOLLYWOOD, California — March 7, 2021 — British actress Stephanie Tripp will join young Lithuanian Star Greta Goldling, who was featured on the official poster of the 2020 edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and transgender Filipina actress Sophia Abella, in the cast of the upcoming feature film Spa, written and directed by veteran film auteur Bruno Pischiutta.

The film, to be shot part in London and part in a touristic resort located by the Aegean Sea in Greece, is Pischiutta’s most anticipated film, and it is expected to be his greatest directing performance since Punctured Hope, the critically acclaimed movie on women’s genital mutilation shot in Africa and qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards® in 2010.

Spa is not a violent film; it has, however, a pushed sexual content that is definitely accentuating its dramatic ending.

Spa will be a landmark in movie history because, as Francis Ford Coppola, Pischiutta is not afraid of risk. In this film, he makes an artistic directorial choice about the casting and is organizing a fabulous and priceless ensemble of talent that remembers the one of Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider.

This is what he says: “Today’s love and sexual relationships are more complicated than ever. They could be interracial and they often involve LGBT characters in a kaleidoscope of different nationalities, traditions and ways.

Love relationships are not caused and motivated by logic but by passion, and the strength of passion gives them life and rules them in a constant fluctuating variation that is always interesting and often surprising”.

For Global Film Studio, Spa will be produced by Daria Trifu, who previously produced Punctured Hope with a US $5.8 million budget and +200 cast and crew members.

Spa will be released worldwide by Global Cinema Online, the company’s pay-per-view streaming service for nonviolent films and documentaries (its own ‘Nonviolent Netflix’).

Bruno Pischiutta is one of the last great Italian directors of his generation and the only one who has lived in America for almost forty years. During his film career, he has created and developed numerous feature films in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, and has won major awards in several countries. In China, he wrote and developed the feature film The Sepia Portrait, and in Ghana he completed the feature film Punctured Hope that the Hollywood Political Film Society proposed for nomination at the 2010 Academy Awards®.

February 7, 2021 — Hollywood, California — Global Nonviolent Film Festival unveils the official poster for its 10th annual edition that takes place this year from September 23 to October 3.

The poster is created on a concept by film director Bruno Pischiutta, and it features actress Kelly Dalston. It is designed and made by Daria Trifu.

The poster’s composition depicts the reality that the lockdowns created for people from all corners of the world: home entertainment is an essential component of every-day life, and watching films on-line is the new norm. 

“In the many months spent at home during the COVID-time, we all adjusted to a ‘new normality’, part of which means choosing our entertainment from the most accessible source available, the internet. Watching films on-line, in the comfort of our home, is for many the only choice and it can be a really enjoyable family experience. The Global Nonviolent Film Festival offers to its viewers nonviolent films and documentaries from ten years”, says Daria Trifu, festival director.

Filmmakers should know that Global Nonviolent Film Festival is open for submissions. The ‘Early Deadline’ to submit a narrative film, documentary or music video is February 25th. 

Submit a film via FilmFreeway

All films selected to participate at the Festival are showcased on the event’s streaming channel from September 23 to October 3, while they compete for awards and recognition. In addition, the selected narrative films and documentaries are guaranteed a distribution contract proposal from Global Cinema Online. 

Global Cinema Online, scheduled to be launched by Global Film Studio in April, is a pay-per-view streaming platform for nonviolent films and documentaries that is well positioned to take a share of the ever growing video on demand market. It aims to become a notable competitor to the likes of Netflix and Hulu.
