Gucci, in collaboration with the 69th Venice International Film Festival, is pleased to announce the nominees for its annual award to recognize an outstanding artistic achievement by a woman in filmmaking: the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema. The second annual Award will be presented on August 31st at the 69th Venice International Film Festival.

 This same day, Francesco Rosi’s IL CASO MATTEI will see its world restoration premiere thanks to Gucci’s partnership with Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation. Rosi’s film has undergone a 4K digital restoration by Cineteca di Bologna at L'Immagine Ritrovata Laboratory in association with The Film Foundation, Paramount Pictures, and Museo Nazionale del Cinema di Torino, and with additional funding from Eni.

Nominees for the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema have been selected from a range of disciplines including director, actor, producer, cinematographer, screenwriter, editor, and costume designer by an Advisory Committee led by Venice International Film Festival Director Alberto Barbera.

The nominees are:

- Colleen Atwood: costume designer, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN

- Nadine Labaki: director, WHERE DO WE GO NOW?

- Brit Marling: actor, ANOTHER EARTH

- Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: director, SAVING FACE

- Thelma Schoonmaker: editor, HUGO

A jury led by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini will select the final recipient from this group of distinguished women. Giannini is joined on the jury by: actress Zoë Saldana; director and screenwriter Paolo Sorrentino; Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts; and film journalist, curator and the Venice International Film Festival’s US Programmer Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan.

Gucci is proud to have joined forces with one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals to spotlight and acclaim the unique contributions women make to the film industry in a wide range of capacities.  In honor of this occasion, Gucci will again make a grant of US$25,000 to the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in the name of the Award recipient.  In 2011, the inaugural Gucci Award for Women in Cinema was presented to Jessica Chastain for her acting work in THE TREE OF LIFE. 

Giannini said, “The world of cinema is inextricably linked with Gucci’s history. We are proud to join forces with the Venice International Film Festival to celebrate five women from today’s film industry with the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema and to honor Francesco Rosi by screening the restored version of his masterpiece IL CASO MATTEI. This year is particularly meaningful as we recognize not only contemporary pioneers in filmmaking but also the career of Rosi and his impact on socially-committed Italian cinema.”
