About Ismaele

I moved to Northern Norway four years ago. Here, I found myself in a fertile environment to learn, improve and perfect my video production skills. My first documentary “Looking for Mobydick” was showed in the national Italian Tv RAI at the tv programme GEO in 2018. “Mediterranean Lights”, was the winner of the ME International Film Festival (USA) 2020 and selected in other film festivals. In 2019, I wrote my first book entitled “Iguazù, alla scoperta della foresta atlantica” [Iguazù: Discovering the Atlantic Forest]. The book won the special prize on the “literature contest Maiella”, Italy. 

In 2020, I was selected for ESoDoc programme 2020. During the ESoDoc training I have been able to learn and to get inspired from different directors, producers, broadcaster involved at international scale in the film sector. Right now, I am working on a full-length documentary in Northern Norway, named “Arctic Blue”. I have been selected to pitch at the Georgia Film Festival 2020, Below Zero 2021 and at the IDS at Torino FilmFestival. 

In spring 2021, I have coordinated two wildlife filmmaking workshops in collaboration with TVIBIT. Directed to young people in Tromsø interested in nature documentaries. In May 2021, I received the Talent Stipend from SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge to improve my underwater filming skills mainly related to marine mammals.
