THE SPACE BETWEEN, starring Flavio Parenti, Lino Guanciale and Maeve Dermody, and directed by Italian/Australian filmmaker Ruth Borgobello and written by Borgobello and Mario Mucciarelli, is an emotional tale of love and loss set in the evocative region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in North East Italy. The film marks history as the first official feature film co-production between Italy and Australia since the treaty was signed 20 years ago.
The story revolves around Marco (Flavio Parenti), a 35 year-old ex-chef who has given up on his career and any sense of hope in order to return to Udine in Northern Italy to nurse his ailing father. Even when offered a job at a leading Italian restaurant in Melbourne, he declines using his father as the excuse. 
When tragedy strikes, the only glimmer of joy arrives in the form of Olivia (Maeve Dermody), a spirited Australian chasing her dream of working in design while on a family mission in Udine. Against the vineyard peppered countryside, jagged mountainscape and electric blue Adriatic sea, these two very different people find themselves at a crossroads that will change their lives forever.

The film is co-produced by Mondo Studio Films (Australia) and Ideacinema (Italy). World sales are handled by Fandango. 

The film debuted in Italy at the Rome Film Festival in October and in Australia at the Lavazza Italian Film Festival. Official theatrical release is set for early 2017.
