N.MASSAPEQUA, NY, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The highly anticipated film “Stolen Dough,” (stolendough.com) directed by AFI Award Winners Stefano Da Frè and Laura Pellegrini, in collaboration with the Russo Brothers National Film Forum, will have its first public screening on Sunday, May 21st at 4:30 PM.

“We are absolutely thrilled our film ‘Stolen Dough’ is to be screened publicly on Sunday May 21st in the Official Competition category at the Big Apple Film Festival in New York City! This film has been a dream from the start. We were honored to receive the Russo Brothers AGBO Film grant during the initial stages of writing the script. As directors & co-producers, We couldn’t be more proud of our team of actors, crew and all our collaborators,” said Stefano Da Frè, Director & Screenwriter, and Laura Pellegrini, Co-Director & Executive Producer.
The film’s protagonist, Anthony “The Big Cheese” Mongiello (inventor of Stuffed Crust Pizza), shares his excitement, stating, “Being born and raised in Brooklyn, it’s an incredible feeling to have a movie about me premiering at The Big Apple Film Festival. I hope that people who watch it will be inspired to follow their own dreams, and that it will serve as a reminder of the power of hard work and perseverance.”
