ANGELA BALDASSARE TFCA award goes to THEY CALLED ME JEEG ROBOT
The Toronto Film Critics Association Jury voted Gabriele Mainetti’s They Called Me Jeeg Robot as Best Film at the Italian Contemporary Film Festival in Canada.
The Prize was announced by Thom Ernst, representing the Jury, formed by Toronto based film critics, during the Closing Night of the Festival, in the prestigious TIFF Bell Lightbox.
They Called Me Jeeg Robot was judged Best Film for its original approach to filmmaking and script writing, blending successfully fantasy, action and social commitment; the film’s gaze on Rome’s outskirts and petty criminals goes hand in hand with fast pace editing and surprising plot twists.
The Award was announced in a full house theatre and director Gabriele Mainetti greeted the audience and thanked the Jury and the Festival with a video message.
