Featuring a shorts block plus the Virginia Film Premiere of Team Marco directed by Julio Vincent Gambuto starring Owen Vaccaro & Anthony Patellis
Screen time alert! Marco, 11, is obsessed with his electronics — his iPad, his Xbox, his VR headset — and hardly leaves the house. But when his grandmother dies and his grandfather moves in, Marco’s life is turned upside-down and he’s forced…to go play outside. “Nonno” (Grandpa) introduces him to bocce — the world’s oldest game — and to the neighborhood crew of old Italian men who play daily at the local court. With sport, laughter and love, Marco finds connection to other people in real life and rounds up a team of neighborhood kids to take on his grandfather and his pals. Followed by either a live or taped 10-15 minute Q & A with the filmmaker. Click here for more on the film.
