A prolific writer-director-actor based in Rome, Davide Cincis developed his cinematic skills while working for many years with some of the biggest names in the Italian and international film industry. After graduating from Los Angeles Valley College Film Department, he moved back to Rome where he began a seven-year collaboration with Fernando Ghia, the Italian producer of the Cannes Film Festival-winning and Academy Award- nominated 1986 film The Mission. As Ghia’s assistant, he developed his skills in production working on several projects: The Endless Game with Albert Finney and Kristin Scott-Thomas; Tre Colonne in Cronaca directed by Carlo Vanzina; and Nostromo with Colin Firth and Claudia Cardinale. Davide is known for Malena (starring Monica Bellucci) and The Legend of 1900 – both helmed by Oscar-winning director Giuseppe Tornatore.
