I have come to Cannes so often, as an actress, director, in different selections… It’s the rendezvous of the month of May. A party where you meet friends. But also an opportunity for reflection. What path did I take? What did the others do? What does cinema say that is universal, specific to all times and all countries? It is all the more intense within a Jury, where we will feel emotions, think, share together. In this world full of sound and fury, I am happy and honored to be here to help, perhaps, filmmakers to arise.

An intense and passionate artist, Valeria Golino is as involved when she plays and directs as when she produces, initiating works that upset codes and question our times. Noticed from her first appearances on the screen in 1983, she crosses from the borders of her native Italy regularly to exercise her talent internationally. His repertoire navigates between social drama and period film, hilarious parody and more intimate work, always closer to feelings. Speaking several languages, Valeria Golino offers them her personality as a free, strong and impertinent woman, a worthy representative of Italian cinema, from the Neapolitan generation, in the firmament. “Valeria makes part of these inspired and inspiring artists who renew themselves by daring to take risks and reinventing themselves with each appearance, comments Pierre Lescure, Presidentof the Cannes Film Festival and Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate. Her acting and her commitment as a director will give her a particularly rich and sharp look at the works presented. »

The creation of a film is the story of an obsession, a disproportionate act of will beyond all logic, propelled by a vital necessity to express a vision. To do this, you have to arm yourself with unfailing perseverance to cross deserts filled with mirages, dare to show yourself to the beholder, carry the desire to upset, transform, transcend. But a first film is even more heroic, more risky; it has, like all the first times, an unexpected and magical ingredient. And we celebrate the birth of a filmmaker! My love affair with cinema and the Cannes Film Festival is a pure joy that continues with this presidency of the Caméra d’or. With all my heart, I hope to live up to this honor.
