19.00 - Stella (Tyler Doehring, USA, 2022, 72') | Military Circle
20.30 - Dinner prepared by chef Alex Vitali at DaPino
On Sunday evening, TIFF audiences are invited to Stella: Ciro Oliva, a young, proud and energetic Neapolitan pizza chef, aims to be the first pizzaiolo ever awarded a prestigious Michelin star. As the Michelin Guide is one of the most influential, discreet and critical institutions in gastronomy, Ciro's quest to bring his restaurant Concettina ai Tre Santi up to the level of a Michelin star is far from easy, as other celebrity chefs, experts and journalists confirm.
The film screening will be followed by a dinner prepared by Italian chef Alex Vitali, well known to the people of Cluj for his dishes at DaPino. Alex began his career in Italy, where he also studied gastronomy, and has worked for restaurants in Rome and Miliano, as well as in Australia. He is one of the founders of ViziFoods, a brand of Italian delicacies.
