Announced today: Indo-Canadian film director and screenwriter Deepa Mehta will be the guest of honour at this year’s River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in beautiful Florence/Italy (from December 5 to 11, 2015) – always my favourite movie fest of the year.

From Deepa Mehta’s Wikipedia entry :

[She is] most known for her Elements Trilogy, Fire (1996), Earth (1998), and Water (2005); among which Earth was sent by India as its official entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and Water was Canada’s official entry for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, making it only the second non-French-language Canadian film to put forth for consideration in that category (the first being Zacharias Kunuk’s 2001 Inuktitut-language feature, Atanarjuat), and the first to receive an Oscar nomination. She also co-founded Hamilton-Mehta Productions, with her husband, producer David Hamilton in 1996. She was awarded a Genie Award in 2003 for the screenplay of Bollywood/Hollywood. In May 2012, Mehta received the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts.

Selbst unter Vier-Sterne-Hotels eine der besten Herbergen, die ich je genossen habe – unter anderem deswegen, weil wir eines der schätzungsweise zwei, drei Zimmer mit ungestörtem (und unschlagbarem) Blick auf den Trevi-Brunnen hatten (Fontana di Trevi).

Auch ansonsten war die Unterkunft perfekt. Für die Dame gab es einen begehbaren Kleiderschrank (aka Ankleidezimmer), das Bad war extra geräumig, und das Frühstück war nicht nur für italienische Verhältnisse besonders reichhaltig. Im Sommer kann man es auf einem Dachbalkon genießen – auch hier mit dem sagenhaften Blick auf den Brunnen.

Looking back at River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival 2014 … and some Florence tips

with 4 comments

This year, I was only able to enjoy River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival for five days. But it was my tenth time in a row – and I got to see a particularly fascinating special guest (Irrfan Khan – you can watch more videos of his Q&A sessions here).

For the visitors of River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival Irrfan Khan was the perfect guest: charming, funny and outspoken. I shot some clips during the Q&A sessions for the movies „Qissa“ (with director Anup Singh) and „Paan Sing Tomar“, hosted by festival director Selvaggia Velo.

River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival 2013

My final (and favourite!) film festival of the year always is the lovely River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in Florence/Italy (flickr photo album). This year (2013), its 13th edition will take place from Friday, November 22, until Thursday, November 28, at beautiful Cinema Odeon on Piazza Strozzi, followed by a weekend in Rome (November 29 to December 1) at Nuovo Cinema Aquila, via L’Aquila 68).

The programme has just been released today.

Following 2012’s special guest Amitabh Bachchan (video below), this year’s guest of honour will be Shabana Azmi (photo). Wikipedia: „(…) She made her film debut in 1974 and soon became one of the leading actresses of Parallel Cinema, an Indian New Wave movement known for its serious content and neo-realism. (…) Azmi has appeared in over 120 Hindi films in both mainstream and independent cinema, and since 1988 she has acted in several foreign projects.“

Mobiles Internet in Italien: der Prepaid-„Schwindel“ (TIM-Tipp)

Wer wie ich nur rudimentär Italienisch spricht (wobei „rudimentär“ bei mir die Übertreibung des Jahrhunderts ist), aber beim Italien-Urlaub nicht auf einen mobilen Internet-Zugang zu halbwegs zivilen Preisen verzichten will, ist geneigt, sich schon vor dem Reiseantritt schlau zu machen.

Z. B. durch Recherche bei Twitter-Kontakten, im Fragen-Forum Quora und natürlich per Google. Gibt man in der Suchmaschine seines Vertrauens die Suchbegriffe „mobiles Internet / Prepaid / Italien“ ein, gelangt man zu jeder Menge vermeintlich hilfreicher Seiten. Amateure und Profis geben in Blogs und auf den Websites von Fachzeitschriften viele tolle Tipps.

Qype: Tijuana in Firenze

Eine meiner Lieblingsspeisen im einst besten mexikanischen Restaurant Berlins (Mexico Lindo, ich erwähnte es kürzlich im Beitrag über die Londoner Taqueria) war ein Käsefondue, in das Chorizo gebröselt wurde (die spanische Paprika-Knoblauch-Wurst). Klingt unspektakulär, schmeckte aber bestens.

Dieses wunderbare Gericht habe ich seitdem nirgendwo mehr gefunden – bis zum vergangenen Dezember in Florenz. Und zwar im Restaurant Tijuana, das wie ein systemgastronomischer Mexikaner wirkt, mich aber bei meiner Stippvisite durchaus überzeugte.

Qype: Old Stove Duomo in Florenz

Im Sommer dürfte der Standort dieser Bar kaum zu übertreffen sein: Von der Terrasse aus blickt man direkt auf den Florentiner Dom, die Kathedrale Santa Maria del Fiore.

Ich war bisher nur im Winter dort, und auch das lohnt sich. Anfang Dezember 2010 konnte ich gegen ein Uhr morgens bei 15 Grad Außentemperatur mit einer Happy-Hour-Margarita (4,50 Euro) vom Raucherzelt vorm Old Stove einen (fast) unverstellten Blick auf den Duomo erhaschen.
