The Wedding Cake was selected by the lovely Fantaspoa Film Festival of Porto Alegre (BR) in 2021. Unfortunately, the festival could only be held online back then, but luckily – during the coming Noite dos Museus (“Night of Museums”) that will take place on May 20th – “The Wedding Cake” will be exhibited at “Cinemateca Capitólio”, apparently the most beautiful movie theater in Porto Alegre! I am extremely glad that my short will be screened again in a real cinema in front of a flesh and blood audience!
I am very happy that the fantastic women of the Sister’s Wild Cinema have asked me to screen The Wedding Cake during a film event organized for the Equal Pay Day, tonight at 6:30 p.m. at M25, Münsterplatz 25, in Ulm, in collaboration with the Women’s Office of the City of Ulm and the Neu-Ulm District Equal Opportunity Office.
I’m bursting with pride! The Wedding Cake is one of the five selected shorts that will be screened during the cinema show held by the most important Italian group of women in audiovisual, Mujeres nel Cinema,. The event will take place this Saturday at the Officine Pasolini, book your free entrance here!
I have not submitted The Wedding Cake to new festivals since a while – feeling very satisfied about my results so far! – but a friend really wanted me to go for a very special one that has a magical aura, the LIFE AFTER OIL International Film Festival holding its 9th edition in September this year. I am totally thrilled that they selected my film and I can’t wait to see how the Sardinian audience will receive it!
In fact, it will be my premiere on Sardinia, and I will do all possible to be there in person! It is a big celebration also because with LIFE AFTER OIL IFF The Wedding Cake reaches eighty festival selections! I feel incredibly proud and I want to celebrate in person in the small town of Villanovaforru on 20-24 September. Continue reading
So, it is now due for next Monday March 28th from 8-10 pm, a week from today, at the Close-Up Film Centre in 97 Sclater Street, London, but unfortunately/fortunately the event is sold out already! Reserving tickets for this screening is no longer possible, but some more tickets will free up at the front desk on the evening of the screening.
I feel very sad for not attending, but hopefully my super amazing set designer Adriana Rosati will be there to catch the festival vibes for me!
I feel so excited and honored that The Wedding Cake, in addition to being a finalist at the Social Film Festival ArTelesia last year, continues its path inside the festival through a screening today at the auditorium of the Benevento Prison, as an initiative of the “Cortincarcere” project!
I am really pleased that my short is shown in this context, which is one of the most important possible.
As I announced one year ago, The Brussels Independent Film Festival selected The Wedding Cake for the 2021 festival, but due to the Belgian COVID-19 situation and government regulations, the screening was postponed to the 2022 edition.
The screening is tomorrow starting 9 pm and I feel very sad for not being there… It is probably the last time my short will be screened at a festival, and it feels melancholy to understand it’s the end of its journey! But it’s been two FANTASTIC years, with seventy-nine festival participation and countless prizes and nominations! Thankfulness, satisfaction, incredulity and pride predominate of course, but I can’t help feeling sadness, too!
This was the 79th festival competition for The Wedding Cake (and most probably the last!) and it feels strange and astonishing how far this little film managed to travel since the beginning of its journey, two years ago! With 15 wins and 10 nominations, I am honestly very satisfied.
I am truly thankful to everyone who gave their contribution to make it possible! My big gratitude to Mikael Moiner, Adriana Rosati, Astrid Hallén, Veli-Matti O Äijälä, Amer Kapetanović, Riccardo Cimino, Giulia Colavolpe Severi and last but not least of course Simon Häggström and Talita.
During my German stay to attend the fabulous the Sisters Wild Cinema – Biberacher Filmfestspiele, I had the great honor of being interviewed by a stunning guy, Henrik Frankenfeld, who has a Friday evening show at the Radio Free FM – Ulm. He was very kind to send me the final cut of our chat in English, during which I could talk about The Wedding Cake and The Ultimate Prostitution and Porn Anthology. Super nice!
I really want to thank again the Konstnärsnämnden, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, for making it possible for me to travel to the festival!
