The story so far…

In August 2009 we finished our 90-minute feature film debut CHI L’HA VISTO – WHO SAW HIM with support from Filmstiftung NRW and the German Federal Film Board.

When completed, the film was shown at several festivals, including the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the Montréal World Film Festival, the Torino Film Festival, the Atlanta Film Festival, the Mix Mexico Sexual Diversity Film Festival and the Film-Festival Max Ophüls and was very well received, and we got lots of positive feedback.

Now we are looking forward to its theatrical release in Germany, which is the starting point for all other distribution plans. A successful theatrical release in Germany also allows us to show CHI L’HA VISTO – WHO SAW HIM to an international audience and helps the release of the film in other countries as well as on DVD and online.

For the theatrical release and the subsequent international DVD release we still need analog and digital copies of the film. We also need to finish the subtitling, author the DVD and produce some various marketing materials. This is why we started two crowdfunding campaigns, one for international backers on IndieGoGo, another one for German speaking fans and supporters on startnext.

Together with friends, fans and movie lovers worldwide, we hope to receive enough money to bring CHI L’HA VISTO – WHO SAW HIM to the cinemas, release it on DVD and show it to as many people as possible. Especially independent film-lovers, road movie and drama fans, friends of the Italian cinema, people who are in search of their own identity, as well as homosexuals and people with bi-national backgrounds will love the film.

The money from both crowdfunding campaigns goes straight into the production of film copies for the theatrical release, the subtitling, recording of audio comments, DVD-authoring, promotional material (posters, postcards, trailer production etc.), press screenings, travel and transportation and general marketing activities.

In the following weeks we will keep you in the loop on our CHI L’HA VISTO BLOG and we will update you with all the latest news about the theatrical release and the crowdfunding campaigns. Additionally we’ll give you exclusive insight into the making of the movie and provide you with background infos.
