And the winner of our Fellini “8 ½” competition is…
Once again, our latest competition proved to be a popular one, but there could only be one winner.
The lucky bugger this time is Irene Maier from Islington, who will be receiving her prize in a few days.
Many thanks to all those who entered – and especially CultFilms and Witchfinder PR – and we’ll try bring you another prize soon!
Regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, Federico Fellini’s landmark 8 ½ is the story of filmmaker Guido (played by long-time Fellini collaborator Marcello Mastroianni) who, embarking on his next film, discovers he has director’s block. Hassled by his producers, his wife (Anouk Aimée) and his mistress (Sandra Milo), Guido retreats into a world of memories, dreams and fantasies – personified by a heavenly beauty (Claudia Cardinale) – to escape his tormentors.
Following its release in 1963, 8 ½ won two Oscars including Best Foreign Film and has stood the test of time with the BFI ranking it the twelfth best film ever. To celebrate the centenary of the master director’s birth, CultFilms are proud to release his most cherished work in a ravishing new 2K restoration.
