2023 Giornate degli Autori: Élise Girard, Delphine Girard, Chong Keat Aun, Céline Sciamma & Teona Strugar Mitevska Populate Sidebar

The Giornate degli Autori folks will be celebrating the twentieth edition of the section and a pair of auteurs in Céline Sciamma and Teona Strugar Mitevska will be gifting them with specially made (insubordination-friendly) new cinema. The spirit and memory of Quebecois filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée will be honored with a special screening of C.R.A.Z.Y and we’ve got some buzz-worthy titles in the shape of Élise Girard (Isabelle Huppert is front and center in Sidonie au Japon), Delphine Girard‘s Quitter la nuit (with Selma Alaoui and Veerle Baetens), Chong Keat Aun‘s Snow in Midsummer, and sticking with the French Canadian theme we got Ariane Louis-Seize‘s feature debut coming-of-ager comedy Vampire humaniste cherche suicidaire consentant among the dozen plus features (ten comp films) and trimmings — including world cinema’s new shinning filmmaker stars in Lila Avilés and Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović packing their MIU MIU WOMEN’S TALES shorts.
