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.

The Best Marketing Dollars You Can Spend

The content of this blog is continuously updated and is addressed to filmmakers worldwide.

Updated on January 11, 2021.


The 10th edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival takes place from September 23 to October 3, 2021.

I founded this Festival with Daria Trifu ten years ago with the only purpose of being able to bring nonviolent films to the public and to the attention of film distributions. 

In recent years, I have been the artistic consultant of the Festival. I have been able to see many nonviolent films produced all over the world that, otherwise, had very little chance of reaching the public. Today, our Festival is recognized as the most important nonviolent festival in the world. Looking back, I must say that it has achieved its goals and, in a sense, has surpassed them.

Years ago, I too was like these film makers; I sent my films to Festivals and I hoped not only to win an award, but also that the films would be noticed and eventually distributed. I know clearly what the filmmakers want: they want their films to be seen as much as possible, and they want to achieve results from their work. 

I absolutely recommend to all filmmakers who produce nonviolent films to participate to our Festival. In this way, if they will be selected, they will have the opportunity for 11 days to show their films to their friends, their colleagues and to all the people who they think are interested in their product. They will also have one or more pages in our magazine DARIA! with photos and the story of their film, the video presentation that I do for every selected film during Festival and, possibly, an award. 

It must also be said that they have a lot of chances to be selected in our Festival: I think that our average selection rate is 50%. 

If they don’t know the Festival well, I recommend them to watch the Video presenting the Awards given at the 2020 edition. The video also contains the trailers of the awarded films. I think that, by watching this video, the filmmakers will have a good idea of our Festival:

In addition to the video, they can also read the comments made by some of the filmmakers who participated at the Festival, here (bottom page):

Filmmaker’s Comments

If the filmmakers decide to submit their films and videos to the Festival, I add another link here to facilitate their entry:

Submit a Film @ FilmFreeway

Finally, I want to recommend to the filmmakers who are not familiar with our Festival, to watch the trailers of the films that we presented during the 2020 edition, as well as the daily presentations that are available year-long on the Festival’s TV Channel here:

www.globalnonviolentfilmfestival.com

Who knows, considering that next year our company will go in distribution and will compete with Netflix, probably some of the filmmakers who participate to the Festival will have their films distributed by Global Cinema Online; if so, the filmmakers will realize that the few dollars they spent to participate to the Festival were the best marketing dollars they ever spent.

Global Film Studio Chooses Greece to Film a Feature Documentary About Unique Aspects of Some of Bruno Pischiutta’s Movies

.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.July 8, 2020PRLog — The Company announced today that, as soon as the Coronavirus will allow for unrestricted international travel, the production of its feature documentary tentatively entitled Retrospective will commence in Greece. The film will highlight some of the most revered films of internationally acclaimed author Bruno Pischiutta.

Director Bruno Pischiutta and Producer Daria Trifu

Pischiutta’s career spans over five decades. His acting performance in Francesco Rosi’s film, Many Wars Ago (Uomini contro), garnered him the Critics Award for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ at the Venice Film Festival in 1972 when he was 19 years of age. He went on to write, direct, produce and edit, critically acclaimed feature films such as Compagne Nude, The Comoedia, Last Encounter in Venice, Life’s Charade, “Maybe…?”, and, amongst others, Punctured Hope.

In the 80s he was awarded at the New York International Film and Television Festival for his film The Comoedia, and formally invited by the Academy Awards® to present it for an Oscar consideration. In the 90s he was, with Steven Spielberg and Bruno Baretto, one of the three directors formally invited to China by the Shanghai Film Studio to develop and produce films there. In the 2000s he was nominated by The Political Film Society in Hollywood in the categories of ‘Best Film Expose’ and ‘Best Film on Human Rights’ for his movie Punctured Hope, alongside Clint Eastwood (for Invictus), Quentin Tarantino (for Inglorious Basterds), and James Cameron (for Avatar).

“Everybody can judge a movie from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that we have to know to fully understand its content. This documentary will show parts of several films I made, and it will explain the ‘why’, the ‘how’ and some relevant aspects related to those movies,” says the Maestro.

The first screenplay Pischiutta ever wrote signaled the director’s life-long affection for the sea; in Retrospective, the blue Aegean Sea becomes the backdrop of the story.

Also in Retrospective, Lithuanian actress Greta Goldling will make her international debut. She is already known for appearing on the official poster of this year’s Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and she has been cast to play a lead role in Bruno Pischiutta’s next major feature film that will be shot following the documentary. Greta Goldling is on the fast lane to reach international stardom.

The documentary will be directed by Pischiutta and produced by Daria Trifu. Special appearances will include Trifu and Dr. Marco Dall’Omo. The music will be composed by Maestro Jay Jourden and produced by Margo’ Buccini. Talks are ongoing for the great Italian art director Davide De Stefano (Voice From the Stone, The Cursed Ones, Giallo) to join as production designer.

From the business point of view, Global Film Studio is open to an association with a coproducer who will be interested in making a long-term financial investment and creative collaboration with the Company based on its operating principles.

Christmas Holidays 2019

I guess that everybody has plans for the Holidays. Some people like to dedicate time to some special or unfinished parts of their work, while still keeping-up with all the commitments that family and holidays require.

The best spectator, my dog Amico.

In these days, I try to be out in the morning and late evening only: in the morning I play tennis, and in the evening I go for a drink and to listen to some live music. 

I work during the most part of the day because I am putting together the last touches to three different productions. 

The first one will start in early January and it is almost fully prepared: it just still requires some technical elements and the booking of few locations. This is a feature documentary about the films I made since 1972 until now. 

Everybody could judge a film from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that can help us to fully understand its content. This is what this documentary will be about: it will show certain parts of several films I made, and it will try to explain the ‘why’, the ‘how’ and some relevant facts related to those films.

On a sunny day with my dog Bianca.

The second and the third productions are related between each other: they are a feature film, and a feature documentary about the making of it. 

The shootings of these productions will take place after the first one.

I am preparing this major feature film and its related documentary from long time; in particular, the feature is an important one, because it will be qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards. 

The pre-production of the feature film is very complicated. Everything is ready to go, but I am still working on two aspects: the financing, and the completion of the cast. This is a moment of decisions because some of the choices that I will make will definitely bring a positive change in the life of some of the people who will be chosen to work on the film.

To complete the financing, I still need few account executives and one Associate Producer. These people will be working with me not only in this project, but also in my upcoming productions of the next three years.

About the casting: the feature film has over 35 characters and several special appearances. I believe that I have chosen the proper actors to fill the existing roles. I am, however, still missing one actress 15/17 years old, who’s native language should be English, and who should have the determination and the necessary qualities to become a film Star.

I know that I will not find the Associate Producer and the missing actress under the Christmas tree, and consequently, I have to locate them in these days, while still enjoying the Holidays.

Happy Holidays to all the visitors of this site,

Bruno
