The director Francesca Archibugi

As hoped for the night of the Governors Awards by the festival's honorary president Lina Wertmuller, Capri, Hollywood 2019 announces itself as a tribute to women: director Francesca Archibugi will work alongside the Israeli artist Noa as chairperson of the 24th edition (December 27th – 2 January), theme chosen is "the female role in the film industry".

The career award was given to Danish director Susanne Bier, the only woman to have won an Oscar, Golden Globe (for

"In a better world" in 2011) and the Emmy (for the mini series "The night manager").

"This year we will talk about gender equality in cinema and not only – explains Marina Cicogna for the Capri Institute in the world – and we will do it together with director Francesca Archibugi and an authentic column of our festival like Noa. With us there will be extraordinary women, starting with American producer Cheryl Boom Isaacs, who as president revolutionized the Academy making the Oscars more open and inclusive. We are particularly happy to welcome Susanne Bier, very close to Italy and to these places: she chose Sorrento and the Gulf of Naples to set her romantic comedy Love is all you need ".

From the world of cinema to that of music, the adhesion to the feminine to the days of Capri is destined to grow: there will also be the Romanian actress Madalina Ghenea, the Italian Cuban model Maylin Aguirre and the singer Nina Zilli. Capri Hollywood-The International Film Festival, which as usual will inaugurate the 2020 Awards season, has already announced some awards: for the best cast in

"Once upon a time … in Hollywood" by Tarantino, for the Best Non-original Screenplay for Steven Zaillian for "The Irishman" directed by Martin Scorsese, and the Capri International Feature Film a "The Traitor" by Marco Bellocchio (a film designed by Italy for the Oscar and running for the main EFA categories).

The festival dedicated to the memory of Gillo Pontecorvo on the centenary of his birth, is promoted by the Capri Institute in the world with the support of the Mibact-Dg Cinema and the Campania Region in collaboration with several private sponsors.
