Rome Film Festival Director, Marco Mueller, (former head of the Venice Film Festival), has already proved himself with this year’s Rome line up, has the festival headed in the right direction with his sights for future years set on high, and did an INCREDIBLE job assuring the safety and well-being for the thousands upon thousands of screaming young fans who warmly greeted the ‘Hunger Games, Catching Fire’ cast molto spiritosi, Beatles style!



From Christian Bale in “Out of the Furnace”, Spike Jonze’s “Her”, to ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, the lifetime achievement award which went to Aleksej Jurevic German’s Out of Competition Film, “Hard To Be A God,” the festival did not disappoint.

“Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was Out of Competition, however,
was an absolute success with the fans who camped out OVERNIGHT just to catch a glimpse or perhaps an autograph from Jennifer, Josh, and Liam.
It was truly amazing. In what felt much like the gladiator ring, girls were crying, screaming as if the Beatles had just come to town, security guards were literally pushing rows and rows of thousands of excited fans back, while Jennifer cleverly entertained them by organizing a wave, to which the fans in the upper tiers, quickly followed suit. Adorable, passionate fans!

The film is by far better than the book!

Write up soon!


This was UNREAL!!!!  Like the gladiator ring!  SO LOUD
