The director's sister Gioia, who hosted the weekend with her brother Dominic, said they were "overwhelmed" by the response to the event.
"I wanted to create something which would be very beautiful and memorable and a way of rediscovering Anthony's character through his creative output.
"The idea for showing all his films together just seemed to me to be a way of immersing ourselves in him.
She added that she was hopeful of creating an annual event in Anthony's memory.
