Nicole Kidman gets Taormina Arte Award

"I’m in love with the cinema. And I wanna say this because this is Italy. It began the European cinema. And I wouldn’t sneak off obviously if I would see Kubrick. But I would also see Fellini. I was young and I didn’t understand a lot of works in the scene, but I knew that I want to be a part of it. And I wanted to say thank you Italy because you have always “got me”. And I am ok," Nicole said

As we reported earlier, the 65th Taormina Film Festival kicked off on Sunday, on June 30, in Sicily. Taormina Film Fest is a European film festival, which annually takes place in the end of June in a Sicilian resort town on the hills of the Tauro Mountain.

Another much-awaited celebrity is Oliver Stone, an American filmmaker, film director and writer, best known for the hit films Platoon, Scarface, Born on the Fourth of July and Natural Born Killers. He got his awards for the Best Adapted Screenplay at Midnight Express on 1979, the Best Director of Platoon in 1987, and was awarded as the Best Director of the Born on the Fourth of July in 1990.

It’s been 65 years as world celebrities come to the Eastern coast of the Italian island to present their movies at the historic festival. Among the past recipients of Actors Honors were Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, Tom Cruise, Marcello Mastroianni, etc. Roman Polanski, Sydney Pollack, Martin Scorsese were awarded as film directors and producers.

The Festival is not as famous as the mainstream Cannes Festival or Biennale. But it is attractive due to master-classes by the maitres of the world cinematography, retrospectives of the great filmmakers, fashion events of the leading Italian designers, elite parties.

On July 4 Oliver Stone shall represent his new documentary “Revealing Ukraine” directed by Igor Lopatyonok about the latest developments in Ukraine and conflict in Donbas.
