Jonas Carpignano, director of “A Ciambra”, will receive the ‘Rising Star Award’ at the 22nd edition of Capri, Hollywood



The Award Will Be Presented December 30th in Anacapri


CAPRI, Italy, November 28, 2017 – Italian-American filmmaker Jonas Carpignano, director of “A Ciambra,” the movie which will be representing Italy for consideration as Best Foreign Language film at the 90th Oscars®, will receive the ‘Rising Star Award’ at the 22nd edition of Capri, Hollywood – The International Film Festival, which takes place here from December 27, 2017 through January 2, 2018. The award will be presented to the 33-year-old director on December 30th following a special screening of his film at Cinema Paradiso in Anacapri. 


Carpignano, who lives and works between Rome and New York, has received praise for his debut movie “Mediterranea.” “A Ciambra,” his second feature film whose producers include Martin Scorsese, recently received a nomination to the prestigious Spirit Awards as Best Foreign Language Film. It was named ‘Best European Movie’ at the Directors’ Fortnight of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The story takes place in Gioia Tauro (Calabria) and explores the relationship of a Romani community with African immigrants and Italian residents.


“The Capri in the World Institute is presenting the ‘Rising Star’ award to this amazing and groundbreaking work by Carpignano, for a film that has been praised by the international media and that will be representing Italy for Academy Award consideration,” said Lina Wertmuller, the festival’s Honorary President. “Italian filmmakers are highly appreciated in the United States as it is obvious from the Spirit Awards nominations received by Luca Guadagnino’s ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ and ‘A Cambria’ - said Pascal Vicedomini, Capri Festival's founder and producer - We are pleased to contribute to spreading the word about Italian cinema to the world through our two back-to-back festivals of Capri, Hollywood and Los Angeles, Italia.”


The following awards have previously been announced for this year’s edition of Capri Hollywood:  “Cinderella the Cat” by  Alessandro Rak, Ivan Cappiello, Marino Guarnieri and Dario Sansone  was ‘Best European Animation Movie”; “Penalty” by Aldo Iuliano will receive the Capri Award as ‘Best Short Movie’; “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of My Life” has been named Best Documentary Film'; British filmmaker Trudie Styler will be receive the “Person of the Year” Award; and the ‘Educational Award’ will go to the movie “Beyond the Sun” directed by Argentinian Graciela Rodriguez and featuring a cameo by Pope Francis’.


The 22nd edition of the Capri, Hollywood - The International Film Fest will be chaired by the Oscar®-winning Italian make-up artist Alessandro Bertolazzi and is dedicated to the beauty and talent of Elizabeth Taylor. The festival traditionally offers a fundamental contribution to the season of the global Awards, bringing celebrities and awaited film productions to the Gulf of Naples.

Since 1995 Capri Hollywood has promoted tourism in southern Italy during the winter highlighting new ideas for recreation and exploration of the region; the event has the support of the Italian Ministry of Culture, (Cinema Division) and of the Municipality of Anacapri.
