‘Hollywood on the Tiber Film Awards,’ Based in Rome, Italy, Recognizes Kevin Schewe’s ‘Bad Love Tigers’ for BEST FEATURE SCRIPT

Jasper, Indiana—Kevin Schewe won a BEST FEATURE SCRIPT award for Bad Love Tigers, his original screenplay based on his second book, at Hollywood on the Tiber Film Awards in Rome, Italy.  

"The history between Rome and Hollywood is truly amazing, so many classic movies were made in Europe with Italian partners, it is truly exciting to be a part of that tradition," Kevin Schewe commented.

The definition of Hollywood on the Tiber was born in the early 1950s, when the American majors decided to play for the first time several films in Europe, choosing Rome as the new capital of film production. The idea was a winning one! Two cultures were able to merge thanks to the magic of the cinema, proving that the seventh art knew no cultural barriers. Today, with this Award, they want to affirm once again that cinema is not only poetry, culture and fun, but also an extraordinary tool to give people the opportunity to know each other.
