claudia gerini - icon award 2020

Not only she has been our special guest at Riviera International Film Festival 2020, the amazing Claudia Gerini has also won the Icon Award 2020: an award to celebrate her thirty years (and counting!) of successes in the movie industry, directed by maestros such as Giuseppe Tornatore and Sergio Corbucci. This award also represented our gratitude for her closeness to the spirit of independent cinema, which she expressed multiple times on stage.

Best Movie – RELATIVITY by Mariko Minoguchi

After her two short movies “Karlstod” (a truly rebel work: the story of a trout that manages to escape a barbecue – what’s not to love?) and “Tides”, her sci-fi title of 2012, Mariko surprised us with her brand new “Relativity”: a thriller with a fascinating narrative structure, based on the poignant and authentic love story between Aron and Nora, palindromes also in real life. The 32-years old, incredibly talented director won the award for Best Movie and amazed this year’s jury of Riviera International Film Festival. Hoping to see this title soon out in theaters, we can’t wait to amaze you too.

Francesca Floris, Pietro Jellinek e Davide Petrosino

The international scream for a better world of Fridays for Future meets the garbage crisis in Rome and the enthusiasm of a group of young Italians, who finally found a reason to start acting for the future of the planet. The debut of Francesca Floris, Pietro Jellinek and Davide Petrosinosi, entirely filmed with a smartphone, convinced the jury of Riviera International Film Festival 2020, who awarded “STRIKE! Fighting For the Future” the title of Best Documentary of the year, the first in this category exclusively directed by Italian talents.
