Oscar winner Bobby Moresco will be the chairman of ‘Capri, Hollywood – The International Film Festival 2023‘ twenty-eighth edition (December 27-January 2, 2024).
The director and screenwriter of ‘Lamborghini’ (currently in Italy working with Andrea Iervolino to prepare the film ‘Maserati’ ) will join President Edwige Fenech on the Blue Island.
Moresco, also the author of cult films such as ‘Crash’, and ‘Million Dollar Baby’, has been very attached to Capri, Hollywood, for years, “just think – recalls Pascal Vicedomini, founder and producer of the kermesse that as a tradition brings stars and the big international film industry to the Bay of Naples in the heart of winter, – that it was at our festival that Moresco met Iervolino and Monica Bacardi (ILBE) who proposed him ‘Bent’ and then a film about Lamborghini, in America as famous as Ferrari. Moreover, Edwige, who has been a supporter of the festival from the very beginning along with personalities such as Lina Wertmuller and Gillo Pontecorvo, will create a pair of ‘hosts’ truly in love with the island and ready to welcome a partner that already promises to be of great interest, committed to supporting the well-deserved Oscar nomination for Matteo Garrone’s ‘Io capitano’.
“Moresco picks up the chairman’s testimonial from cult director Terry Gilliam, who remains on the Capri Institute team with Tony Renis (honorary chairperson), Noa (honorary chairwoman), filmmakers Michael Radford, Shekhar Kapur, Mimmo Calopresti, Enrico Vanzina, and Oscar winners Alessandro Bertolazzi and Gianni Quaranta.
