Veteran Italian filmmaker Ettore Scola will receive the prize in Venice on September 6, coinciding with the fest’s day of tribute to Federico Fellini. Scola’s most recent film, Che Strano Chiamarsi Federico!, a reflection on his 50-year relationship with Fellini, will world premiere on the Lido the same day. The Glory to the Filmmaker award is dedicated to a personality who has brought major innovation to contemporary cinema – last year’s recipient was Spike Lee. Scola previously appeared in Venice with 1989’s What Time Is It? and 1995’s Romanzo Di Un Giovane Povero, which both won acting prizes. Four of his films have been nominated for the Foreign Language Oscar: A Special Day, Viva Italia!, Le Bal and The Family. The 70th edition of Venice runs August 28-September 7.
