Nick Cave Got the Gucci Award

The Gucci AwardNick Cave has been awarded the first annual Guc award for Artists in Film at the 63rd Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica on September 8th.

The award is given to, and we quote: “an internationally acclaimed artist whose achievements, until now, have been accomplished in areas other than cinema, but whose leap into the world of film has been an auspicious one.”

The Gucci Group Award is presented to an artist who has made a remarkable contribution to a film in any capacity within the past 18 months, whether in the role of the film’s director, actor, screenwriter, set designer or costume designer.

Shorlisted for this award were Nick Cave, for the script for “The Proposition”; Helena Christensen, for her role in Danish drama “Allegro”; Gregory Colbert, for his multimedia exhibition “Ashes and Snow”; the duo Douglas Gordon and Gaul’s Philippe Parreno, for helming soccer docu “Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait” and finally Alain Robbe-Grillet, for helming “C’est gradiva qui vous appelle”.

The judging panel included Jeremy Irons, Alexander McQueen and Moby.

The Gucci Group Award is a collaboration between the internationally recognized Venice Film Festival and the Gucci Group.
