Giallo is thriller all'italiana, with elements of horror, murder mystery, exploitation and much more. They are known for their black-gloved killers, ingenious murder set pieces, humor, sexploitation and violence all delivered with verve and style that is uniquely Italian.
We are showcasing ten films culled from the heydays of the genre, 60's and 70's, but make no mistake as this is a genre that continues to thrive today as is evident in its far reaching influences over a generation of filmmakers.

Who Are We?
We are two New York-based filmmakers, Alessio Giorgetti and Yunsun Chae, and Alessio Grana, a psychologist in Italy.
As avid fans of Giallo movies, we felt that a theatrical showcase solely dedicated to this important genre was grossly overdue in a city like New York.
This will provide a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to experience these films in their original 35mm format.
What We Need & What You Get
We spent the last six months finding a venue, researching, tracking down rights and locating these rare 35mm film prints. It hasn't been easy, and we have come this far on our naive enthusiasm as fans. But organizing an event like this is a costly endeavor, and that's why we are asking for your help. So far, we have done what we could with our own piggy banks, but here's the breakdown of major costs that still need to be covered.
--35mm Print Rental & Maintenance Fees
--Insurance, Shipping and Special Handling of these very fragile films (35mm prints are HEAVY! And half of our films are coming from Italy).
--Clearance of Rights (We thank those distributors that have generously granted us the rights).
--Bringing special guests to take the showcase to a whole new level.
--Expenses related to promoting the event, e.g. ads., posters, flyers, etc.
--Expenses related to creating & softing(running live subtitles) during 7 screenings of our Italian prints.
We know that times are hard, and that most of the contributions come from the heart. In exchange of your generosity we want to show a token of our appreciation in the form of Special Thanks on our website and on the screen before each film as well as tickets and Giallo memorabilia.
If you can't attend our showcase because you live far away from the Big Apple you can still enjoy the perks and know that a succesful showcase will help us reprise the showcase in other cities. And who knows if we reach beyond our goal we could even do Giallo Fever 2. There are just so many movies we want to show!
