The event is the brainchild of the Malastrana Film Series association, and was devised with the commitment and enthusiasm of Alessio Giorgetti and Alessio Grana. The ambition of the two young curators was made possible thanks a successful Kickstarter campaign, in which the festival was fully funded by user donations.
The program includes the screening of 10 cult films by seven directors: among which, father of Italian gothic film Mario Bava, "poet of the macabre" Lucio Fulci and Pupi Avati, Sergio Martino, Massimo Dallamano and Elio Petri. "Master of fear" Dario Argento is also in the line-up. His 1970 film debut The Bird with the Crystal Plumage will open the festival, in the presence of the protagonist, actor Tony Musante.
