As for the film, distributors refused to rent them on many requested titles.
Luca Sansone a member of the group Laboratorio di Quartiere Giambellino Lorenteggio, says that they use the film’s to build a community.
All were having a good time together and the people who can’t afford to pay the movie tickets were being benefited to watch it for free..
Since June 15 of the year, over 540 cinemas are being opened with following the safety rules and guidelines.
There were 200 people being allowed at a particular time to watch the movies.
Although, Cinema owners are still bearing a huge struggle due to the loss by COVID pandemic.
The government is trying to help them with providing subsidies but this could not cover up there loss, Its going huge.
Distributors reply for the issue:
It is said that the distributor rejected the right for more than 150 films.
The Carocci and others blamed the ANICA and ANEC, for not considering and misconstrue the free program.
This discussion was taken by the film industry associations and the culture ministry before a year from now.
When it comes to the answers, the distributor is not responding. Even the representative of universal and eaten Bros declined to comment and didn’t even come back respectively.
Some other members are supporting their action by saying that the investment in the film should not go in vain.
