The European Film Academy Welcomes Bruno Pischiutta as a Member

Who says you can’t mix Europe’s rich cinematic legacy with the contemporary film scene? The latest newsworthy event in the world of cinema proves otherwise! Bruno Pischiutta, the renowned chairman of Global Film Studio, has been inducted as a member of the European Film Academy. 

The news was announced on May 9th in Berlin, Germany, amidst the European Union’s day of peace and unity celebration.

Let’s take a look at all the beautiful details of this newly minted living legend.

Illustrious Beginnings

The European Film Academy has a history dating back to 1989, when it was founded by an ensemble of esteemed filmmakers, including its first president Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini, and Bernardo Bertolucci. Its mission? To nurture the interests of the European film industry. Today, it stands as a vanguard in the cinematic world, hosting the annual European Film Awards, where the creme de la creme of European films are celebrated and recognized.

Bruno Pischiutta’s induction brings with it a sense of nostalgia. The film maestro reflects on his journey, from his early days as a theater actor playing roles from Chekhov to Shakespeare, to his first brush with cinema as a young actor, where at the tender age of nineteen, he won the critics’ award for best supporting actor at the Venice Film Festival for his performance in “Uomini Contro” (Many Wars Ago).

Academy journey

 Beyond his acting career, Pischiutta ventured into the realm of directing and had the privilege of sharing his passion with Italian luminaries like Paolo Uccello, Domenico Pertica, and Federico Fellini. The latter even recognized him as the best young director in Italy, a testament to Pischiutta’s cinematic prowess.

Reminiscing about his past, Pischiutta recalls meeting Fellini for the first time in Rome, an encounter that led to him receiving the prestigious Premio Simpatia. This award, previously bestowed upon Italian directors Fellini and Zeffirelli, signified a monumental moment in Pischiutta’s career.

His directorial vision was further acknowledged when his modern adaptation of Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, titled “The Comoedia,” earned him comparisons to Ingmar Bergman’s unique style of filmmaking.

A New Chapter

Now, as a recognized member of the European Film Academy, Pischiutta acknowledges this as one of the most significant milestones in his illustrious career. His heartfelt gratitude goes out to his friend and fellow Academy member, Kostadin Bonev, the Bulgarian filmmaker who introduced him to the Academy amidst a hectic filming schedule in New York.

Global Film Studio, under Pischiutta’s guidance, is currently in the throes of producing a highly anticipated project, “The Trilogy.” This endeavor touches on topical issues of our era, including freedom of speech, sexualization of children, Satanism, and pedophilia. 

The project comprises three narrative feature-length motion pictures directed by Pischiutta and three documentaries helmed by Daria Trifu. Filming will take place in London, UK, and Greece.

Bruno Pischiutta’s journey from a young theater actor to becoming a celebrated member of the European Film Academy is an inspiring testament to his dedication and passion for the art of cinema. As he embarks on this new chapter, one can’t help but wonder: What innovative and thought-provoking narratives will Pischiutta bring to the screen next?
