The date of the screening of Nolan’s latest movie on the run for Oscars 2024 is Jan. 1 on Capri island.
The extraordinary group of actors in Christopher Nolan’s film “Oppenheimer” has been awarded with the “Capri Best Ensemble Cast Award 2023”, a special prize given annually as part of the “Capri, Hollywood – The International Film Festival” promoted with the MiC (DG Cinema) and the Campania Region (Film Commission), together with Intesa Sanpaolo and Givova, which will take place from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2.
The announcement of the award was made by legendary music producer Tony Renis (a former Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee), honorary president of the Capri in the World Institute, which will offer, on Monday January 1, a special screening of the movie in the rich program of the kermesse (more than 200 titles) now in its 28th edition. The festival has the patronage of the City of Anacapri, the City of Capri, the City of Naples, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterraneum, the Italian Red Cross and Nuovo Imaie, with the participation of Isaia, Caremar and Radio2 Rai.
