Bondi Honored with Inaugural Italian Filmmaker Award
Through a $250,000 endowment provided by the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation, the Denver Film Society has established the Maria and Tommaso Maglione Italian Filmmaker Award. The award, named after Anna Sie’s parents, recognizes emerging Italian filmmakers and reflects her deep commitment to her Italian heritage and her love of film.
The 2008 award was presented to Federico Bondi for his film Mar Nero (Black Sea).
