Interview with Danny Caprio (The Mediterranean Film Festival (MedFF))

The Mediterranean Film Festival (MedFF) is an film festival that rewards every month the best for each category. Its objective is to promote independent films and emerging artists by making them competing with more established ones.


Matthew Toffolo:What is your Film Festival succeeding at doing for filmmakers?

Danny Caprio: The MEDFF was born to promote directors all over the world, the goal being to get in touch with productions, actors and artists in general, interested in realizing projects together. Until now we have always been able to enhance our members.

What would you expect to experience if you attend the festival this year (2017)?

The experience of this long year of festival has been very important. We had major artists from all over the world: Radha Mitchell, Jessica Cameron, Brooke Lewis and Alexandre Di Martini. The job was very difficult because we had more than 2500 members, of whom only 10/15% came to the final selections. The live event was held in Syracuse and rewarded the best choices from the public. 2018 will provide more surprises

What are the qualifications for the selected films?

I want to point out that it’s never easy to select a movie. Every filmmaker has its own style and we know from the MEDFF that in every movie there is also a piece of soul of the producer. The jury chooses on the basis of the different types of enrollment and evaluates the different aspects of cinematography.

Do you think that some films really don’t get a fair shake from film festivals? And if so, why?

The cinema market is like a moon park. Each attraction has a certain number of viewers and most of the time these people follow the mass.

Many films fail to exit the festivals because they do not have adequate marketing support behind them. For this reason, MEDFF has partnered with iPitchTv to help filmmakers have a faster and cheaper marketing channel.

What motivates you and your team to do this festival?

It does not take much to find the right reasons. You become part of MEDFF only if you have great love for cinema.

How has your FilmFreeway submission process been?

I love Filmfreeway, it has a nice method to submission

Where do you see the festival by 2020?

I hope in live TV

What film have you seen the most times in your life?

Shining! it is a MUST – it is a CULT

In one sentence, what makes a great film?

The actors

How is the film scene in your city?

Not so bad….we have unconventional movies, where i am the CEO, and we produce low budget movies.
