Nicholas Cage to receive 'Legend Award' at 11th Annual Ischia Global Film and Music Festival

NEW DELHI: Academy Award-winner and renowned actor Nicolas Cage will receive a 2013 "Ischia Legend Award" at the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival on 19 July.


A special screening of his latest motion picture, Emmett/Furla Films‘ The Frozen Ground, will take place that night during a gala evening at the Regina Isabella Hotel on Ischia‘s Lacco Ameno bay. Co-star Vanessa Hudgens and producers 50 Cent and Randall Emmett will join the Hollywood superstar and the director at the event, according to Festival founder and producer Pascal Vicedomini.


The annual festival will be held from 14 to 21 July on the picturesque isle that is located off the coast of Naples. It is presented under the auspices of the Ischia International Arts Academy with the support of BNL-Group, BNP PARIBAS, and 3 Italy along with the sponsorship of the Italian Culture Ministry and the Campania Region.


Cage, nephew of filmmaker Francis Ford and of actress Talia Shire, has appeared in more than 60 films and is one of the most celebrated actors in the world. In 1996 he won the Best Actor Oscar and Golden Globe for Mike Figgis‘ Leaving Las Vegas and in 2002 he was nominated by the Academy for Spike Jonze‘s Adaptation. Cage has worked with the greatest contemporary masters from Alan Parker (Birdy) to David Lynch (Wild at Heart), from Martin Scorsese (Bringing Out the Dead) to Brian De Palma‘s (Snake Eyes), from Ridley Scott (Matchstick Men) to Werner Herzog (The Bad Lieutenant) and Joel Schumacher (Trespass).
 
His vast filmography also includes Raising Arizona, The Rock, Face/Off, Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, National Treasure, Lord of War, Ghost Rider, Kick-Ass, and The Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In 2013, he voiced the character of Crug in the animated film The Croods. His next film will be David Gordon Green‘s Joe.


"Nicolas Cage has been praised for his daring performances and fearless choice of roles," said Vicedomini. "He is truly one of the great male movie stars and we welcome him with open arms to our festival and to the island of Ischia." Vicedomini also thanked the producers of The Frozen Ground for allowing the Ischia Global Fest to screen the film.


Directed by Scott Walker, it is a thriller based on the life of serial killer Robert Hansen - played by John Cusack - a seemingly quiet family man who in the ‘80s terrorized Alaska by abducting, torturing and killing 24 women. Cage plays the role of the Sheriff while Hudgens plays a stripper trying to lure the assassin. The film also stars rapper 50 Cent.


Noted film producer and executive Arnon Milchan and actor Samuel L. Jackson have already been announced as 2013 Ischia Legend Award recipients. Prior recipients include Oliver Stone, Vanessa Redgrave, Sir Ben Kingsley, Hilary Swank and music icons Sting, Burt Bacharach, Harry Belafonte and producer/executive Clive Davis.


Joining Vicedomini in overseeing this year‘s Ischia Global Film & Music Fest are President Michele Placido, Honorary Presidents Trudie Styler and Tony Renis, and an Executive Board comprised of producers Mark Canton, Marina Cicogna, Rick Nicita, Paula Wagner, Aurelio De Laurentiis, multi Oscar-winning production designers Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo, president of Cinecitt?

Irada....Docu-thriller?

The title Irada comes across as B-grade 1970s and it has little relevance to the theme of the film, which is honourable. The film is about an ecological problem, almost a disaster. The issue dealt with here, though, is not as infamous or as well known as the Bhopal gas tragedy.
