RICHARD GERE among the stars of #GIFFONI50

Celebrated actor Richard Gere will be making a special appearance in Part 1 of the 50thth edition of the Giffoni Film Festival (August 18-22).  Gere is in fact scheduled to appear at the festival with an online Q&A with the jurors on August 20 to celebrate the 50th edition of the event which is particularly meaningful for the popular children’s film festival in such a troubled year.
This is the Golden Globe winner’s second time at Giffoni following his visit in 2014  on the occasion of the 44th edition where he was honored for his extensive acting career with the Truffaut Award.
Gere is best known for his roles in An Officer and a Gentleman, Days of Heaven, American Gigolo, Breathless, Pretty Woman, First Knight, Primal Fear, Chicago, Unfaithful, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, The Cotton Club, Shall We Dance and Internal Affairs.
Gere’s most recent film credits include Three Christs, co-starring Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins and Bradley Whitford; and The Dinner, which was based on a novel written by Herman Koch. He also starred in Joseph Cedar’s film Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer, co-starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dan Stevens, Michael Sheen, and Steve Buscemi. In 2015, he appeared in Andrew Renzi’s The Benefactor, alongside Dakota Fanning and Theo James.
Among his recent projects are the highly acclaimed art house film Time Out of Mind, directed by Oren Moverman; and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, directed by John Madden. Gere also appeared with Susan Sarandon in Arbitrage, directed by Nicolas Jarecki which brought him his second Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor.
Gere also recently starred as Max in the psycho-thriller, MotherFatherSon, an eight-part series which aired on BBC Two. The series was created and written by Tom Rob Smith.
Gere’s first major role was in Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven, for which he won a David di Donatello Award as Best Foreign Actor.  His breakthrough role was in American Gigolo.  Additional credits include  Red Corner, Hachiko and  Brooklyn’s Finest.
