ROME - Back again this year, the RomaFictionFest event dedicated to great Italian and international fiction, promoted by the Lazio Region and by the Chamber of Commerce of Rome and organized by Sviluppo Lazio (the industry association of the Lazio region) in collaboration with APT (Television Producers Association), will take place from September 30 to October 5 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.

This year, RomaFictionFest provides space for the cultural partnership signed during the last MIPTV in Cannes with BBC Worldwide. Within a larger project of internationalization of Italian fiction, the Festival organizes a day dedicated to the colossus of European television by presenting a preview of some of the most anticipated serial productions from BBC. These include the costume drama Great Expectations, a reassessment of the novel by Charles Dickens, played by Gillian Anderson, who thanks to the direction of Brian Kirk (Boardwalk Empire, Luther) brings to life a contemporary masterpiece of the English novelist.

Gillian Anderson, unforgettable Agent Scully of The X-Files, returns to the small screen in the role of 'Miss Havisham' and will attend the Festival to receive the RomaFictionFestall' Artistic Excellence Award. The BBC Worldwide Day will also include a series of events, screenings, and master classes that involve the public of RomaFictionFest and professionals of the audiovisual industry in Italy and worldwide.

Date: September 30 - October 5, 2012
Location: Auditorium Conciliazione, Via della Conciliazione 4, Rome, 00193, Italy
