Gucci Award for Women

On Friday night, at the 68th Venice Film Festival, the inaugural Gucci Award for Women in Cinema was awarded by Madonna to Jessica Chastain, the unconventionally beautiful breakthrough star of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.

The aim of the award is, says Gucci, to "recognise an outstanding achievement by a woman in filmmaking", and the nominees were selected by an advisory committee led by the Venice Film Festival's director Marco Mueller. The final choice came down to a jury of the creative director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, the actors Robin Wright, Valeria Golin and James Franco, and the film journalist and Venice's US programmer Giulia D'Agnolo Vallan. As part of the prize, Gucci will give US$25,000 (Dh92,000) to the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in Chastain's name.
