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’).

Global Film Studio is financing Spa and its new streaming venture Global Cinema Online through a Pre-IPO Private Placement issued last month.

The total to be raised is US $21.5 million. The PPM is structured to accept subscriptions from institutional investors who have the resources to make large investments, as well as from high net worth individuals who wish to explore investing in media by starting with small figures.

Via this Pre-IPO Private Placement it is now possible to subscribe for Common shares of the Company at US $8.6 per share, from a minimum of US $8,600 per one Unit of 1,000 shares. Financiers from Abu Dhabi, Miami, London and Wall Street have already shown interest in participating. The Executive Summary is here: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

RETROSPECTIVE (working title): A 96 minutes feature documentary.

The tentative date for the shootings is booked for October 2020; we can say that, after that date, as soon as the Coronavirus will allow for unrestricted international travel, the production of the film will commence in Greece. The film will be shot in High Definition (4K) and in Hollywood standard, and it will highlight some of the most revered films of internationally acclaimed film author Bruno Pischiutta.

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 Bareto, 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 signalled the director’s life-long affection for the sea; in Retrospective, the blue Aegean Sea becomes the backdrop of the story.

The footage of Pischiutta’s past films that will be used in Retrospective will bring the viewers to different locations and to different situations: to a very particular Venice, to New York of the 80s, to the Ghanaian rainforest, and to the Canadian Niagara Falls.

Global Nonviolent Film Festival Reveals Its Official Poster for 2020

June 16, 2020 — Hollywood, California — Global Nonviolent Film Festival reveals the official poster for its 9th annual edition that takes place from September 24 to October 4.

Official Poster of the 2020 edition of Global Nonviolent Film Festival.

The poster is created on a concept by film director Bruno Pischiutta, and it features actress Greta Goldling. The original artwork, realized in digital collage method, was made by Daria Trifu.

“The poster advertises the Festival. It is also a freeze-frame that identifies the present year; it will stay there forever and it will be seen for years to come. 

Until now, 2020 has been marked by two historical elements: COVID-19 and the social unrest in America. The people who will view the poster twenty years from now will not need to read the date of the event, but they will be able to visually identify 2020 as the year when this Festival’s edition took place. 2020 is also the year that marks the debut in the international film industry of actress Greta Goldling who, in this picture, reminisces a young Angelina Jolie,” said Bruno Pischiutta, who also serves as the  Festival’s artistic consultant. 

Daria Trifu, the Festival’s director, further explains that “Global Nonviolent Film Festival showcases only non-violent films since 2012. We were the first to create such an international event and, in 2016, to take it on-line so that the whole world could watch the selected movies. As I listened to Bruno describing his vision for the poster, I wanted to incorporate all the elements in a digital collage where they fuse seemingness through colours, shapes and contrasts.” 

In light of the impact that current events have on our world, the film business has to adapt. Some of the most famous film festivals are migrating to virtual platforms, and several premieres by Hollywood Studios are taking place on-line. 

Global Film Studio owns the Global Nonviolent Film Festival and Daria Trifu, who is the Company’s president, had this to add: “We live in a digital world. For our business, it’s never been more universally clear that expanding virtually is the right choice and the best use of resources. Our Company chose this path early, in 2016, when we decided to take our already successful traditional local film festival on-line exclusively. We closed our physical screenings and moved the whole event on-line; it was a bold move that could have gone two ways. 

It went the right way, and we are very proud of the event’s success.”

In 2021, Global Film Studio is launching GlobalCinema.online, its own OTT streaming platform. GlobalCinema.online will showcase feature films, shorts and documentaries to paid subscribers. Some films will be available on a pay-per-view basis so that the platform will be able to host premieres and limited time releases too. Global Cinema will be a competitor to Netflix, and it aims to bring to the world viewers top quality films in every genre with a special focus on non-violent content. The film catalogue will include some of the best movies presented at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival.

Global Nonviolent Film Festival accepts submissions via FilmFreeway. The deadline to submit is August 22. The Festival takes place on-line at www.globalnonviolentfilmfestival.com.
