The prize was virtually awarded during Tracce di Sedicorto, the two-night preview event.
Sedicicorto Forlì International Film Festival, scheduled from 2nd to 11th October in a double version, online on MyMovies.it and partially in person, is about to start. But the preview event already declared the first winner of the 17th edition.
Tracce di Sedicorto took place 14th and 15th September at Arena Musei San Domenico, in Forlì. Both nights were sold out and this is a powerful message for the world of cinema that will face a hard autumn due to the Covid crisis.
Sedicicorto believes in this message and, not coincidentally, an important part of the event, the third edition of IranFest, which will take place at Cinema San Luigi from 4th to 6th October, will be just one of the several festival events that will be hosted in this historic cinema. The artistic director Gianluca Castellini and the staff of Sedicicorto believe in this theatre and in the online edition. The Women in Set prize further enhanced the collaboration with MyMovies.it, the cinema website founded by Gianluca Guzzo.
This year prize was awarded to the director Roberta Torre, who gave the Italian cinema innovative films such as Tano da morire, Sud Side Stori, Angela, Mare nero, I baci mai dati and the last one Riccardo va all’inferno, a brilliant musical remake of Richard III by William Shakespeare with a spectacular Massimo Ranieri as main character.
The prize wants to be above all a good women and underlines the important role Roberta Torre played in the 2000s in representing women in cinema, an industry which is still deeply sexist and male-dominated. The director sent a video message of aknowledgements, but the artistic direction of Sedicicorto will do its utmost to have her next year, in 2021, together with all the guests who can only virtually participate to this year edition.
