We’re pleased to announce that Danish director Thomas Vinterberg will be our guest at the 25th edition of Umbria Film Festival and will receive the keys of Montone!
Vinterberg is amongst the founders of the Dogme 95 filmmaking movement and director of “Festen”, for which he has been awarded the Cannes Jury Prize in 1998. In 2005 he has directed “Dear Wendy”, a film written by Lars von Trier and for which he has been crowned Best Director at the 27th Moscow International Film Festival.
Last April, his film “Another Round” received an Academy Award for Best International Feature Film.
In his works, Vinterberg deals with the constraining effects of presentday social mores by showing what happens to those that dare defying them. He skillfully explores what the many think, but the few have the courage to say.
