Nunziata also presented The Picture House Lifetime Achievement Award to his friend and colleague, actor Dominic Chianese.


“I’m very excited that my hometown independent movie theater, The Picture House, selected my film, The Old Guitarist, to open the Westchester Italian Film Festival. I was thrilled to present the star of my film, and longtime friend, Dominic Chianese with the Westchester Italian Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award. It was so wonderful to see so many friends and family from Pelham and Westchester County at the event.”
