Audrey Hepburn. The eternal grace and elegance of a world cinema diva is the protagonist of the official image of the twelfth edition of the Rome Film Festival, scheduled from 26 October to 5 November 2017, produced by the Cinema Foundation for Rome, chaired by Piera Detassis with the artistic direction of Antonio Monda.
The sophisticated and intellectual image of Audrey Hepburn wonderfully prefigures the style of this new edition of Rome Film Festival. Because the twelfth edition of the Film Festival proposes this year a sophisticated program that mixes genres: not only the cinematic but the more general, artistic ones.
An iconic image. The picture shows Audrey Hepburn with her timeless black dress with white gloves and ballerinas, mirror of a style and glamor that continue to inspire the world of fashion and not only. Stylish, timeless and cheerful. The eternal beauty of Audrey Hepburn is exalted in the image chosen by joyful colored balloons, the many colors of Cinema.
The stunning picture, shoot by David Seymour, is taken from the Cinderella movie in Paris (Funny Face), a 1957 comedy directed by Stanley Donen with protagonist Audrey Hepburn alongside Fred Astaire. An image that does not represent a casual choice because, in addition to celebrating the 60th anniversary of the release of the film, is a great way to remember how the musical genre will be a fixed presence of this film festival.
“Few actresses have an idea of grace and sophistication like Audrey Hepburn,” said Antonio Monda. “I think it’s a perfect symbol of the Feastival we’re trying to build, especially in this image full of joy and elegance.”
A perfect choice, that Roma Luxury totally approved, because the diva is an icon for both the fashion world and the movie world.
Audrey Hepburn is really the Cinema. Cinema is like a dream. What she dreamed of, an extra little girl who came to the US with her passion for dance, first to Broadway and then to Hollywood.
The one who wins the Oscar at the first movie as a protagonist (Roman Holidays, for the record), which cuts off her hair live, who is loved by the public, critics and (very hard) by colleagues.
She puts all herself on every film: her style, her body, her smile, her life, her idealized, rejected, wronged love.
