Cinema starts from #Giffoni50 with Pixar Animation Studios: the premiere of the Disney Pixar film Onward on july 16

A special screening to go back  to dreaming and getting excited in the theater by celebrating the launch of the 50th edition of the Giffoni Film Festival

The new creative architecture of #Giffoni50 presents itself to the world with a series of events that will begin on Thursday 16 July and end on December 30. The traditional festival "becomes 4” and is split in different moments according to the age target of the jurors who will be guaranteed maximum safety. The first leg will take place in Giffoni Valle Piana from 18 to 22 August, the second from 25 to 29 August, the third between September and November and the fourth from 26 to 30 December. But there is an important date: the beginning of the 50th anniversary celebrations (scheduled until 2021): Thursday 16 July the world of cinema comes  back from Giffoni with Pixar which will offer jurors the opportunity to see the premiere of ONWARD.
Set in an imaginary fantasy world, the film tells the story of two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley who have the opportunity to spend one more day with their father who sadly passed away, and embark an extraordinary adventure on Barley’s epic truck Geneva. Like any self-respecting feat, their adventure is full of magical spells, mysterious maps, insurmountable obstacles and incredible discoveries. But when the brave mother of the boys, Laurel, realizes that her children have disappeared, she allies with Manticora, an ex-warrior partly lion, partly bat and partly scorpion, and starts looking for them. Despite the danger, this magical single day could mean far more than they ever imagined.
Directed by Dan Scanlone produced by Kori Rae, the creative team behind Monsters University, Onward – Beyond Magic includes actors Sabrina Ferilli (Laurel Lightfoot), Fabio Volo (Wilden Lightfoot), Favij (spirit), Raul Cremona (sorcerer's apprentice) and David Parenzo (waiter) in the Italian verison. A special screening to encourage dreams and put excitement back in cinemas with the big screen ready to illuminate the faces and hopes of hundreds of jurors. A film that will make hearts beat through the regenerating power of cinema, which, today more than ever, will give young people a newfound sociability.
"The desire for a new start is strong - explains the director of Giffoni Opportunity, Claudio Gubitosi - and it is even more so  for young people who need to return to the theater and be amazed by the magic and charm of Pixar who from generation to generation, have never disappointed expectations. Giffoni could not hope to start in a better way and with one of the most prestigious partners in the world".
