Opening Film:

The opening film was the Canadian premiere of the comedy Qualcosa di Nuovo or Something New.  It was directed by Cristina Comencini. This humorous comedy centres on Maria (Paola Cortellesi) who is spontaneous and naïve – and quite addicted to men. She meets a man who falls into her bed – he is charming, sensitive and mature; however, he is only nineteen years of age.  Hence, the laughs begin. Italian actress Paola Cortellesi was well received at the film festival and she received the ICFF 2017 Best Actress Award. Cortellesi said “I’m very humble and sincerely happy in receiving so much love by all Canadians and by the Italian community in this beautiful Country”.
