I'VE SEEN FILMS - International Film Festival


I'VE SEEN FILMS 2010 will run for ten days, from September 30 to October 9,  in the following venues located downtown Milan: Gnomo Milano Cinema, Centre Culturel Français, and the Royal Palace where the Gala Award Evening will take place on Friday, October 8.


To allow wider and wider viewership of our authors' works, one of I'VE SEEN FILMS initiatives is also the  Internet Contest, that will be launched by the end of May. In 2009, the selected works received a staggering number of more than 1,500,000 views.


I'VE SEEN FILMS is one of the few film festivals in the world that is both  founded and directly managed by a famous actor and director. Its main purpose is the world-wide promotion of the works of filmmakers who deserve exposure and visibility for their works but rarely achieve this from the classic-formula film festivals.

I'VE SEEN FILMS can count on a Jury formed by many notable artistic talents and experts of the cinematography sector. The 2010 Jury members, including the Festival's founder Rutger Hauer, are: Miranda Richardson (Dance with a Stranger, Empire of the Sun, The Crying Game, Damage, Sleepy Hollow, The Phantom of the Opera, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Young Victoria, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Anton Corbijn (U2: The Best of 1990-2000, Linear, Some YoYo Stuff, Control, The American), Roberto Faenza (Copkiller, The Bachelor, Jonah Who Lived in the Whale, According to Pereira, Lost Lover, The Soul Keeper), Bill Bristow (Who Are They, Prosit Ermanno! The Swan, Fleas), Takehito Kuroha (Lookin' for Real Violence, Clacson, Roulette), and filmmaking experts such as Grazyna Torbicka (journalist, artistic director and TV presenter), Cesare Vergati (film department responsible at Centre Culturel Français de Milan, writer and poet), and Flavia Costa (film scholar and film festival organizer).

The 2010 International Competition will include a special section dedicated to works dealing with themes and images from Arts (painting, sculpture, theater, poetry and literature). The Culture Department of the Milano Municipality will assign a prize of Euro2,000 to this category's winner.

In addition to the competing feature and short films, this year's Festival edition will also include a special tribute dedicated to an internationally renowned filmmaker.


Centre Culturel Français de Milan, the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland, Microcinema Digital Network, 20th Century Fox, Best Movie,, the Rutger Hauer FilmFactory, EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture), and Goethe Institute Mailand have already confirmed their cooperation to I've Seen Films.

The Festival's Media Partner is CNR Media who, through its radio, television and website (  network, will keep the audience up to date on the Festival's news.

Since its 2008 inception, I'VE SEEN FILMS has been one of the first film festivals in the world to screen the authors' works in a masterful, high-definition digitalized version. This is a key feature, uncommon in other festivals, that requires a high degree of professional technical knowledge and expertise.


I'VE SEEN FILMS is creating an innovative way of linking the most advanced communication media to the firmly established cultural film festival tradition, with Rutger Hauer at the helm, personally awarding the Festival winners during the Gala Award Evening that will take place in the prestigious Royal Palace in Milan. The film authors, together with their works, will become the Festival's real protagonists.
