Paul Sorvino honored at the 13th MIFF AWARDS (November 5, 2013)

On November 5 at the 13th edition of the MIFF Awards at the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles, Paul Sorvino became the recipient of the prestigious Life Achievement Leonardo Da Vinci's Horse. During the award ceremony Paul received the surprise visit of his daughter Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Mira Sorvino, who presented him with the Leonardo’s Horse. Other winners in MIFF’s 13th edition include “Manhunt” for Best Editing (Joe Bini); “Filly Brown” for Best Supporting Actor (Lou Diamond Phillips), and  “Eden” for Best Director (Megan Griffith) and Best Film. In his opening remarks the Consul General underlined the importance of MIFF’s mission to encourage and support the progress of indie films from around the globe and praised the innovative format that MIFF represents and that its Founder Andrea Galante has successfully promoted.

The Milan International Film Festival is an annual international cinema showcase dedicated to independent movies taking place in Milan each year in May, with the winning artists honored in L.A. in November. Nicknamed by the media as the "Milanese Sundance", MIFF has been recognized as the official International Cinema exhibition festival of Milan. MIFF existed as a conventional film festival for 8 years, until 2009, when it reinvented itself as MIFF Awards, a brand new genre in the sphere of film events that featured an avant-garde format developed through an unwavering commitment to support independent films.
