60th festival for “The Wedding Cake”: HER Docs!





I was really really hoping I would get to go to this amazing festival with The Wedding Cake when I submitted, imagine my happiness when I received confirmation! It feels lovely to also celebrate my 60th festival selection with HER Docs Film Festival!

The event is scheduled for September 3-7, 2021, and I am secretly hoping to attend and fulfill my dream of finally visiting Warsaw.

I was hoping I would get to participate to this lovely festival one day, ever since I moved to Sweden!!!

I am SO delighted and proud of being part of this important event, the IFEMA – International Female Film Festival Malmö is the oldest Swedish festival with focus on directresses! The Wedding Cake is one of the seven cherry-picked shorts featuring in the Saturday 17 April program at the Cinema Pandora (my favorite!), starting at 6 pm. Tickets are sold here.

“Best Director” award from Lecce Film Fest!


The jury of the Lecce Film Festival decided to award me with “The Director of the Year 2021” prize for The Wedding Cake!

I would have been really happy for this prize regardless, of course, but hearing the boys and girl from the jury reading their motivations moved me to tears… It is for them I made this short, and all the other chapters of my coming feature “Silent Flesh”.

I wish to thank Nicola Neto and Ornella Striani for their unreserved efforts to organize meaningful cinema experiences despite to health restrictions: thank you!
