TIFF 2017
"Tulipani: Love, Honour and a Bicycle", an Italian/Dutch/Canadian feature directed by Academy Award-winning director Mike van Diem, and scored by Jim and good pal Ari Posner, will receive its world premiere at TIFF this year. A delightful, charming film along the lines of "Amelie" and "Il Postino", it was shot in the gorgeous Italian countryside and features a quirky orchestral score.
