“The Wedding Cake” finally in Malmö for IFEMA!

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!

“The Wedding Cake” at the Doc.London!

The good news continues! The Wedding Cake is selected for the Doc.London Documentary Film Festival 2021, which is part of the Tarkovski Project! It is my first participation with TWC in the UK!

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.
