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.
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!
Back to Brazil for a very exciting festival that this year reaches its 17th edition, the Fantaspoa Film Festival of Porto Alegre!
The festival will take place 9-18 April 2021, this year as an online version.
My thanking video (in Italian!) for receiving a Special Mention award at the closing ceremony of this 18th edition! I am overwhelmed for getting this recognition from such an important institution, and such a stylish statuette! It is a perfect replica of an ancient Etruscan artwork, I am extremely proud!!
This is sweet! The Wedding Cake is finalist in the animation category of the Greenwich Village Film Festival, that has reached its 6th edition this year! The event will be online, which gives me the splendid opportunity of participating despite the distance!
A live Q&A will be held on March 12, on Friday, at 11 am local time, that is 5 pm CET (my time!). I have the honor of having the festival co-founder and president Alessia Gatti as moderator: I am so grateful and thrilled!
The organizers have decided to postpone the screenings to next year and host a double edition then, due to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK.
But winners will be announced at the end of March by the international jury.
