Born in Sicily in 1960, Gaetano was a graduate in History and Film Criticism who also worked in the film industry. With the creation of CinemAmbiente Festival in Turin, which he directed from 1998, he laid the foundations of ecological awareness combined with cinema and the arts.
In 2013, Mr. Gaetano Capizzi, among 5 other dedicated festival directors from around the world, was one of the Founders of the Green Film Network which he orchestrated and fostered for 7 years.
It is owed to his engagement that GFN today unites more than 30 environmental festivals on five continents.
On Oct 24th this strong and energetic personality was relieved of his last burden.
The Green Film Network will carry on his enormous dedication to making the world a better place.
