New Rome Topper Antonio Monda Charts New Course As ‘Truth’ Opens Fest With Few Frills
Ten years after launching with imperial ambitions, the Rome Film Festival may be finding its more realistic footing as a big city fest like many others, albeit with more flair provided by new artistic director Antonio Monda, an ambitious multihyphenate with ties to the U.S. film and literary worlds.

An associate professor of film at Nyu, Monda is also a New York-based arts events organizer and Italo journalist with a penchant for hobnobbing with high-profile arts figures, including Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, thanks to dinners he holds in his Upper West Side apartment where people come not to see and be seen but “for an exchange of ideas,” he says.
