„Go Debut” 2018 workshop: “Festival strategies“ Enrico Vanucci (IT)
Enrico Vannucci born 1981 in Sassuolo, Italy, has been passionate about films since childhood due to his permissive parents letting him watch VHS tapes and going to the cinema together with them. In 2007, he graduated in screenwriting from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and was awarded his MA in Film Studies from the University of Bologna in 2008 with a thesis exploring John Frankenheimer and Jonathan Demme’s The Manchurian Candidate. He has been a member of film festival programming teams since 2010 and currently works as a short film advisor for the Venice Film Festival and Quebec City Film Festival, and as a short film programmer at the Torino Short Film Market, as well as being a freelance programmer and curator. In recent years he has written essays on the short and feature film festival ecosystem that have been published and presented at international conferences. Finally, he has covered major film festivals as a journalist since 2009.
